Bangkok to Kathmandu Shipping

Hi everyone,
Just wanted to update on Barry Crawford at East West Air Services no longer does this service. See our correspondance below. Anyone knows of any other agents? Im still awaiting Thai Cargo reply.

No, really don't. If I did then I could offer you the service too.

Hi Barry,
Thanks for the reply, would u happen to know who still does such a service. Any help or point in the right direction would be most appreciated. I'll be leaving bangkok around mid March and into Katmandu.
Thanks and best wishes
