A pair of Nike sneakers can either be delivered to Can Tho in three main ways. The most obvious method is shipping the Nike sneakers from New York to Can Tho Port. This is the cheapest method and it’s relatively fast. DHL charges the least for such a delivery; for as little $14.20 one can send a pair of Nike sneakers from one’s door step in New York to the recipient’s door step in Can Tho. Basically DHL will send an origin agent to the client’s home to verify the Nike sneakers and pick them up. After that it will up to the delivery company to arrange how the consignment shall be shipped to Can Tho. This is of course after the customer has provided the necessary details. This entire shipping process takes a maximum of three days. Both the pick up and delivery can be done by a motor bike or a truck depending on how the company decides to go about it.
Secondly, the sneakers can also be sent air freight, specifically Speed Post Ems services. This the most expensive method of parcel delivery available; it costs $43.35 and it takes approximately the same amount of time as it does to send the sneakers via DHL shipping system. The procedure is similar to the shipping process with a slight difference in the mode of transportation from the US to Vietnam. While the prior case was shipping this case involves air freight. The mode of delivery is also door to door implying than Ems shall have to send an origin agent to the client’s residence to pick up the package.
Finally, the sneakers can be delivered from New York to Can Tho via multimodal services. The most preferred service provider shall be Ems Express. This delivery mode shall cost around $19.46 and shall take the longest time. The consignment shall arrive in Can Tho in a week’s time. Though, it is relatively cheap compared to Speed Post Ems. In addition to this, Ems Express is the most complicated of the three methods of parcel delivery from New York to Can Tho. This is because the cargo shall use multiple modes of transport to get to Vietnam. This might include a combination of surface, air and water transport. This is the reason why the delivery takes the longest time. This is method of delivery is also door to door. It is also important to mention that both three companies offer insurance services which guarantee that the sneakers shall be delivered intact.
