Bangkok to Kathmandu Shipping
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.
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

Hello, no we don't do this anymore. Too many problems with the airport and Dangerous Goods.
Hi my name is Dalbir,
I'm in singapore at the moment. Will be shipping my bike from Bangkok to NEpal sometime in mid March. Just writing to make an initial contact and check if you do provide such service.
No other contacts out of Bangkok, that I know of, but have you considered shipping from Malaysia?
