Shenzhen day 2: Meeting with shippers

Posted on Tuesday, November 20th, 2012 in Global Geek by Ian

Today we started off by meeting with Susan at Vita International Freight Company. They gave a great price on air freighting 100kg of stuff back to the workshop (about $3 per KG all in).

We also explored a part of the market with a dozen or more shippers that contract air freight with different shippers and airlines. Ian snapped a pic of this one because of his strange obsession with Finnair. Will all our goodies get the wonderful service of Finnair?
