Air Freight

We offer air freight forwarding to companies and individuals alike.  If you’re looking for door to door service, utilizing our network of worldwide agents with whom we have had many years of working together, we’ll take care of your Air Freight shipment from origin to destination to include Customs clearance and of course, our regular shipment updates.

Door to airport

Our door to airport service can provide you with the choice of using your own Customs agent at your airport of destination.  We’ll still give you the same excellent service and updates but you’re agent will take over your shipment on arrival.


To benefit from improved rates, you can use our consolidated service.  This is where we group several Air Freight consignments for the same destination into a consolidation under one master AWB.  Each consignment can be issued with it’s own House AWB.  You benefit from our consolidated rate and can select a door-door or door-airport service only.

Out of gauge

Freight or cargo that does not fit normally in one of the standard air freight containers is considered out of gauge and will often require specialist packing or a dedicated air cargo service.  If you have a requirement for OOG cargo, just let us know.


The way we track our clients shipment is where we are different.  Many companies will provide you with a tracking number which you have to enter into a website to get your own updates when you feel you need an update.  EBISS will do this better.  We have key stages throughout a shipments progress that we send you a personalized email (or phone call) update on your air freight shipment’s status. Many carriers websites will say ‘awaiting international Customs release’  We will tell you when the entry was presented to Customs and when release can be expected.  This gives you not only peace of mind but a realistic time frame for when your shipment will be delivered.


When you have an unusual shipment that requires a charter aircraft, we’ll check routing, timescale and payload to establish the most suitable aircraft for your needs.  We can offer part-charters, backloads and other solutions, as you need.

We can supervise aircraft loading and unloading and co-ordinate the specialist equipment that your shipment may need.

Personal Effects

If you’re relocating, attending University overseas, sending personal effects to loved ones overseas, or need to send extra baggage, EBISS can help.  We can organize to pick-up your personal effects, pack them, and organize for their delivery anywhere in the world.

Sea Freight

Full loads – FCL

If you need a full container load, we can provide any size container that you’re looking for.  Most customers choose a 40’ container but we can provide a 40’ High Cube container.  The difference is just 12 inches or 30 cms which equates to an additional 344 cu ft of additional storage.  It also allows you more height to load pieces that exceed the 7’ 10” internal height of a standard 40’ container.

Less Than Container Loads – LCL

Shipping by LCL (or less than a container load) allows you to share a sea freight container with other shippers and as such, benefit from a shared cost as you only pay for the space you use rather than the whole container.

Receiving and palletising

We can receive your shipment or pick-up from origin, pack and ship on your behalf by sea freight to virtually any world-wide destination.

Door to door

With our door-door service on FCL or LCL, we work with our trusted international agents to facilitate timely Customs clearance and deliveries.

Door to port

If you have your own Customs agent, we can export your shipment to arrival port only.  Your own agent can take over on arrival.


We provide you with our key staged update email tracking updates.  We’ll update you at regular stages to keep you posted on your shipments whereabouts and status.

Out of gauge

If you have a shipment that is overheight or overwidth, we can move it. You can call on our expertise to select the correct equipment to move your shipment by sea freight.

We can provide open-top containers, flat racks, platforms, or refrigerated containers and provide the necessary equipment at both the unloading and reloading locations.

Personal Effects

Sending Personal Effects by sea is a cost-effective way of moving your personal effects worldwide.  If a small shipment, you can benefit from our LCL service or for house-moves, we can provide Full Load containers.  All our personal effects services are on a door to door, or door to port service.
