Enter the shipment information

Firstly, to give you a price for your air freight shipment, we need to know where your cargo is going from and where it is heading.

For both the "from" (origin) and "to" (destination) locations, you can either enter an address or an airport.

To enter an address, just start typing the address. The field will auto-complete for you.

For an airport, select the "Airport" button and then start typing. If you know the city or the IATA code of that airport, start typing them. You can also search by country: for example, you might want to find airports in Italy, in which case just type "Italy" or "IT", the UN code for Italy, to immediately refine the list to show airports in Italy:
