One of our most popular forwarding services is of course our air freight service, and in this article, we’ll be discussing some of the many benefits of using it to send packages and excess baggage to countries around the world.
Air freight is fast
For those that need to get their packages to other countries as soon as possible, air freight is the fastest and most efficient service that will do this for you.
While sea and land freight are both reliable ways of forwarding your packages or excess baggage, if you’re sending belongings across the world, no other service will do it quicker than this.
Air freight offers consistency
All packages sent through our air freight service can be tracked by customers, so that they can enjoy the peace of mind in knowing that their items are being delivered within the quoted delivery time.
Even if a package was to miss its intended flight, due to the fact that on average, freight planes run on an hourly basis, in the vast majority of cases, there would be no additional day added on to a delivery time.
Air freight is more secure
As you can imagine, security around any kind of air freight is strictly controlled, and at airports around the world, it is a top priority.
With this in mind, it means that all packages are handled with due care and attention.
What’s more, packages that are transported via air freight encounter less “hops” than other packages, which means that they are handled by fewer people, as well as there being less of a reliance on local warehouses.
Air freight can be cheaper than you think
If you’re looking to insure your packages, the great news is that on average, items that travel by air freight enjoy lower insurance premiums due to the fact that they are handled by fewer people.
As well as saving on insurance, forwarding packages by air freight is also a great way of avoiding excess baggage fees charged by airlines.
Emirates for example, charges up to £40 per kilo for long haul flights.
