Living in Laos
Officially the Lao People's Democratic Republic, Laos is a relatively small landlocked country in South Eastern Asia. Its neighbouring countries are China to the north, Vietnam to the east, Cambodia to the south, and lastly Thailand and briefly Myanmar to the west. It is a communist state and has been said to be one of the most corrupt countries in the World. The country is also poor in terms of individual incomes and has a criticised history regarding human rights. In recent years however, the country has been experiencing rapid economic growth. Much of this is due to an increased tourism market, as well as trade agreements with neighbouring countries and the United States, after President Obama declared it was no longer Marxist and lifted trade barriers for US companies. In terms of landscape, Laos is predominantly forested and mountainous; deforestation is proving to be a growing problem as the commercial potential of timber is increasingly realised. Buddhism is the dominant religion in Laos, with two thirds of the population identifying with the faith, and the religion plays quite a significant role within wider society and in the country’s culture. Buddhist temples are symbolic of the country, and art and literature also reflect the presence of Buddhism.

Shipping-containers to Laos via Air Freight
If you need your belongings in Laos in a hurry, airfreight is the quickest transit method to move your possessions internationally. Shipping-containers via air freight are highly convenient, but this does come with a higher price tag. Your quote for Laos Shipping-containers is calculated based on the weight of your consignment, meaning it is not so economical for larger loads such as an entire home.
If you are only sending a one bedroom flat, some boxes of clothes or a few items of furniture to Laos but you require them urgently, air freight is a convenient transport method. Many Movecorp customers will make use of our air freight to Laos service cooperatively with another method of transportation. Such as sending a small number of items they need as a priority via air freight and everything else they can send via sea freight to cut costs.
Another factor that might influence the cost of your Shipping-containers to Laos via air freight is what happens with your goods upon their arrival in Laos. You can choose to collect your goods at the airport yourself, or you can request that diligent moving teams deliver your goods to the kerbside of your new home.
