Expeditors’ multimodal program combines Sea+Air shipping services for savings over straight airfreight shipments, all while maintaining reasonable transit times. Combining Sea+Air shipping service can also help you minimize destination warehouse charges.
All multimodal shipments stay integrated within our global network, systems, and operational procedures, and receive Expeditors’ support from start to finish
Better transit time and performance
Transit times for multimodal service fall between normal air and ocean shipments on the same lane, with time savings up to 50 percent over an ocean transit. Select Asian routes act as capacity buffers and offer transit times similar to air transit but perform much better thanks to space availability.

Sea+Air services at Expeditors move on a single transport document and a single per-kilo rate covers all transportation and trans-shipment costs.
Global tracking and reporting
Global visibility for all Sea+Air shipments is provided by Expeditors’ online tracking system, exp.o®, and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) communication protocols process Sea+Air shipment information.
