Benefits of Air Freight Shipping

  • Fast and Reliable: Shipping by air offers the fastest transit times, making it the best solution for time-sensitive goods. With frequent flight departures occurring a day, this makes air freight a reliable solution and means that your goods could arrive the same day they are shipped. 
  • Secure Shipping: When shipping by air, goods undergo minimal handling which leaves less room for accidents to occur. Thanks to tight airport security and regulations, the risk of mistakes or theft is minimised. 
  • Ship Almost Anywhere: Shipping by sea often means you need to also use road freight solutions to get to your final destination due to the location of sea ports. With air freight shipping, you have the option to ship to almost anywhere as most airlines have a large chain of destinations worldwide.
  • Reduced Packaging, Storage and Insurance: Air shipments typically use less packaging compared to other freight solutions, meaning you’ll save on costs. Due to the quick transit times that air freight offers, the need for warehouse storage is reduced and insurance premium is lower, cutting additional costs.
