MAIN AIRPORTS THAILAND
SUVARNABHUMI AIRPORT (BKK)
Suvarnabhumi is the main logistic hub in Thailand, but also in South-East Asia. This airport is key for your shipment to Thailand, as it is also used as a regional gateway within the country. As the 21st busiest airport in the world, and the 1st one in Thailand, most of the shipments we handle to Thailand are headed to this airport.
DON MUEANG INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (DMK)
Don Mueang International Airport is the second airport situated in Bangkok. We can also ship to this airport, alternatively to Suvarnabhumi, as it is convenient to serve the greater Bangkok. Most of charters offer a daily service to this airport. In fact, in 2015, DMK became the world’s largest low cost carrier airport.
Additionally, we can also ensure an air freight service other airports located in other parts of the country such as Chiang Mai, Phuket, Hat Yai, and much more. It will depends on the type of cargo you need to ship, the location of the final delivery,… Please contact us now, so that we can figure out together the most-suited logistic solution.
Info HIF : If you want further information about airport in Thailand, you can check the dedicated & official website: Airport of Thailand (AOT).
Remark HIF: As an example, a flight from Shanghai to Thailand takes approximately 4 hours. But, this is not the only thing that has to be taken into consideration. An air shipment is made up of several logistic steps, that can cause unexpected delays or troubles.
First things first: when it comes to transit times for your air shipment, you have to keep in mind we are not only talking about the flight duration. The whole process of shipping by air is complex, and many processes have to be carried out.
*Concretely, we have to close a deal with the airline company, book space for your parcel, arrange storage prior to departure if needed, carry out customs clearance, etc.
In this way, even though the flight duration is around 4hours, don’t expect to receive your parcel within this amount of time. Additionally, every shipment is different. It means that the transit times will vary according to the type of cargo to be cleared out, the option you choose (priority express freight, regular air freight, etc.).
Anyway, keep in mind that the following steps have to be followed when shipping by air:
Step 1 – Gathering details about the shipment: type of cargo, weight, destination, service required…
Step 2 – HIF Shipping closes shipment with the airline company
Step 3 – Storage at warehouses prior to departure
Step 4 – Flight duration
Step 5 – Customs clearance
Step 6 – Cargo arrival and delivery services (if required)
*Considering only flight duration would thus be a huge mistake.
HIF Advice : The best solution is to contact your HIF Shipping advisor. Once we have clarified what kind of shipment you need us to arrange, we’ll be able to forecast transit times and all related information.
AIR FREIGHT RATES
The weight is not the only factor affecting the quotation. Naturally, the price will also depend on the service you require. A door-to-door service will obviously be more expensive than a door-to-airport.
*If the volumetric weight is higher than the actual weight of your box, the carrier will quote based on this weight. You can use online chargeable weight calculators to make it easier, now that you understand how it works.
HIF Advice : This is why our pricing strategy is based on a case-by-case method. Contact us now and received your personal quotation within 24h!
CROSS BORDER FROM/TO MALAYSIA
Road freight will be the most convenient option if :
Your supplier islocated in the south of China
You need to deliver Thailand and/or Malaysia on the way
You’re not in a hurry to receive your goods
Remark HIF : The other option you have for your shipment from China to Thailand is cross-border trucking service. This option is at the same time cheap and relatively fast. It seems like it is the in-between solution between air and sea freight. Obviously, shipping by road from the eastern part of China would not be cost-effective.
Cross-border from the Southern and Western part of China is possible by crossing Vietnam and Laos, before reaching Thailand. We can delivery to any place in Thailand, from the countryside to the main cities like Bangkok, Pattaya, Phuket, etc.
This kind of shipment requires upfront planning. Please contact us as soon as possible so that we can arrange the best routes and build up the most cost-effective option.

Transit times between China and Thailand are shorter than sea freight, obviously. Here are two examples:
Hong Kong – Bangkok : 2-3 days
Guangzhou – Chiang Mai: 2-3 days
Remark HIF : If you need to ship from cities situated in the North-East part of the country, ocean freight is recommended, as the distance to be covered would be too important.
*Additionally, please note this is not easy to provide accurate transit times when it comes to road freight, as the number of unexpected events that may occur is greater: traffic, bad weather, etc.
At HIF Shipping, we understand how important for you it is to be kept on the loop about the status of your shipment. This is why your HIF advisor will make sure to let you know where is located at any time thanks to our updated tracking system.
