If your main priority with shipping internationally is speed and reliability, air freight is the best choice.
Air freight forwarders transfer goods (unaccompanied) via charter or commercial air carriers. The combined benefits of extensive global reach, high levels of security and express delivery make it ideal for transporting high-value or perishable goods. Airlines have a vast network of destinations and strict schedules with departures several times a day, so potentially missing a flight won't cause a noticeable delay.
Shipping by air costs more than land and sea transportation, but it delivers peace of mind when it comes to time-sensitive consignments. In business, time is money and meeting customers' expectations can justify the higher cost of flying cargo. While shipments take weeks to arrive, international air freight can arrive at its destination in as little as a day.
What are the advantages of the air services?
If your consignment is urgent, you can choose to send your goods via air freight services as the transit time is shorter. You can send pallets of different sizes, standard or oversized, but please be advised that the height limit is 160 cm. Also, air freight services offer a door to door option, included in the shipping cost.
Can I ship both pallets and parcels by air freight?
Yes, air freight services can handle both pallets and parcels.
Can I transport my goods to airport only?
Yes, we can ship on a door to airport option, but please be advised you have to request a quote, as the prices we offer on the website are for door to door services.
Can I ship by air freight if I don't have a custom agent/ broker?
Yes, you can still ship by air freight . The vast majority of our air freight services come with customs clearance in the destination country included. The receiver will be contacted by customs once the goods arrive to the airport.
What documents do I need when shipping a pallet via air freight service?
If you are shipping your consignment via air freight, you will need a commercial invoice containing HS/commodity codes. If you are shipping personal effects, you will need a proforma invoice (which we supply) and a packing list. 3 copies of the Invoice must be attached to the pallet. Please be advised that depending on the destination country and the nature of the goods, specific documentation may be required. If you require further information, please access the page of the country you want to ship to, and check the Q&A section or feel free to contact us via email.
What can I ship by air freight?
We ship a wide range of goods by air freight, such as car parts, tools, printed materials, ambient food items, and many more. For restricted items, please visit our Prohibited & Restricted Items section.
Prices are based on the size and weight of your shipment. Despite the higher cost of express delivery, air freight requires less packaging and because the transit is shorter, you save money on insurance compared to sea and road transportation.
Our air freight services offer door-to-door collections and deliveries for palletised and non-palletised freight consignments, no matter the size, weight or shape. They can also assist you with any international shipping requirements, including customs clearance, paperwork, and duties and taxes, saving you time and energy.
