We offer exceptional prices and service for your volume PCB requirements.
For medium to large volume PCB orders from around 60kgs, we have expanded our cooperation with an Air Cargo service in Shenzhen. This service reduces shipping costs and is an excellent option if lead-times are not urgent. Our Air Cargo service adds around 10-15 working days to lead-times.
Sea freight is the most cost-effective shipping option on large, heavy shipments of printed circuit boards. The starting weight is normally around 60kgs. Anything less than this is still cost effective on our dedicated air freight service. Shipping by sea adds around 50-55 working days to lead times.
