Air Freight Logistics
We provide a full range of air freight logistic services from port to port consolidations through to air taxi, courier and project cargo services.
We can handle all aspects of import and export freight handling on your behalf from large commercial consignments including the management of supply chains and distribution programs through to shipping of excess baggage, household goods and personal effects for the general public. Our highly experienced staff understand the import export business and can help you to fully leverage the most appropriate services for your requirements.
Standard consolidations are cheaper than must fly services and are operated under more flexible terms, generally with a 3 day window. In most instances cargo will ship as hoped, but if available capacity is used, for example for passenger cargo, mail services or must fly premium services then the standard consolidation is held back for the next flight. This type of service is fine if you are flexible with the delivery date.
For time sensitive shipments we can arrange for must fly premium air freight services. Whilst not as expensive courier services, this type of shipment is booked on scheduled consolidations but with the guarantee that it must leave with the plane and arrive at the destination as agreed.
Out Of Gauge
We can arrange transport of most outsized cargoes such as yachts, boats, architectural metalwork, large vehicles, construction plant and film props etc. Genarlly speaking the definition of out of gauge is a piece of freight that will not fit in a standard air freight container.
