About the Freight Shipping and Transit Time Calculator
International freight is complicated, particularly when choosing between different shipping modes.
This international freight shipping transit time calculator gives estimated shipping time for blended inland trucking, air and ocean freight, to give a comprehensive freight shipping time estimate.
And if you’re ready to ship, head over to the Freightos Marketplace to find and book the perfect shipment in seconds, complete with accurate transit time projections.
Why is there such wide a range in the shipment duration?
Because there are a lot of ways to ship. Seriously.
There are about 107,000 different UN Codes for Trade and Transport Locations (UN/LOCODE) for different shipping destinations. Which means variance, like the fact that shipping time for an ocean shipment from Shenzhen, China, to Miami, Florida through the Suez Canal takes 41 days while the (more expensive) Panama Canal takes only 35 days. Use our Seaport Code Finder to find Locodes, port Names, and seaport codes for international seaports.
When would you use this transit time calculator?
Once you have collected the key freight documents you need from your supplier, calculated your chargeable weight, then it’s time to select a freight mode. Whether you select air or ocean freight, that decision comes down to cost and transit time.
