Air Freight Services

As the fastest mode of transport, airfreight is sometimes indispensable when it comes to keeping a production line running or meeting time-sensitive project schedules. Airfreighting high-value inventory items may be the most cost-effective mode, as it will allow for a reduction in inventory holding. Airfreight offers short transit times and reliable scheduled arrivals, even when there is a need for transshipment.

Airfreight Benefits

If you’ve ever needed cargo to get you out of an emergency, you’ll appreciate the true value of airfreight. Consider the benefits;

  • Speed– most airfreight companies won’t offer airfreight lead times of less than seven days. Yet, airfreight cargos usually take around five days from pickup to delivery.
  • Reduced inventory carrying costs– many companies prefer to airfreight high-value and perishable goods because carrying costs like insurance and damages offset the higher transportation
  • Reliability – Airfreight is the most reliable of transportation modes
  • Access to underdeveloped markets – Quickly get cargo to areas in underdeveloped, inaccessible places.


Airfreight Options

Choose from several options depending on the level of urgency
  • Next FlightOut– the quickest and typically the costliest option. If you choose this option, your cargo will leave on the next flight out.
  • Deferred – the least expensive option, but it is also the least reliable and slowest as the freight forwarder can bump your goods onto the next flight.
  • Consolidated Cargo – is cheaper because your cargo is combined with other shipments for preferential rates. You will need a well-connected cargo carrier with a significant client base to ensure the regular departure of consolidated cargo.
  • Charter Plane – the most expensive option, a chartered plane is one you hire and is dedicated to your cargo.

Whether you’ve chosen to airfreight your cargo to save inventory carrying costs or to get out of an emergency, our freight management services team has the skills and experience to meet your airfreight needs.
