Speed & Reliability

In fast-paced commodity markets, the speed of transport can be crucial to success. With time-sensitive consignments, air freight is often the fastest and most direct mode of transport. The shorter delivery windows and procurement times gained by using air transportation can also enhance competitiveness.

Lower Risk of Damages

Air Freight is considered a less intrusive mode of transport with lower risk of damaging cargo when compared to sea freight transportation.

Track & Trace

The transparency in air transport is one of the main reasons why many companies prefer this mode of transport. Airlines and forwarding companies offer complete track and trace facilities that monitor the cargo from departure to arrival.

Inventory Flexibility

With faster transit times and faster customs processes there is often less need for local warehousing.
