Marine transport

Marine transport

For a country like Japan that is surrounded by water, maritime transport is an efficient transport method.
It offers highly efficient transport of large volumes of freight at relatively low cost.
Container ships are generally used for maritime transport. Depending on the type and size of freight, and import/export regulations in the countries concerned, customers can request 20 or 40 foot containers (FCL) or consolidate cargo in small-volume freight via LCL service.

Air transport

Air transport

Air transport is effective when freight must be delivered more swiftly than maritime transport can provide.
Air transport shortens delivery time, but limits the amount of freight that can be transported at a time and costs more than other transport methods. It is most suitable for goods that are required with urgency and expensive goods that make air transport worth the cost. IFS offers optimal transport methods to match deadlines and budgets, and makes sure customers’ goods arrive at their destinations on time.
