In addition, our teams are on hand 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to take care of any unexpected circumstances, in which speed is of the essence. We can coordinate and organise urgent shipments at short notice, such as a factory stoppage, spare parts for the aviation industry (Aircraft on Ground), or medical equipment for a campaign hospital in Africa.

We can offer immediate solutions for crisis situations.

WHO ARE OUR AIR FREIGHT SERVICES AIMED AT?

Air freight is the perfect solution for all types of goods where speed is of the essence. It is the best solution for goods that need to be delivered quickly according to schedule or urgently as a result of unexpected circumstances.

SAMPLES

Perfect for samples which need to be delivered to customers or potential clients. As they are normally small shipments, air freight is the ideal solution for saving time and optimising costs.

PRODUCTS WITH A SHORT EXPIRY DATE

Air freight is ideal for shipping perishable goods, such as strawberries, oysters, and anchovies that require urgent delivery, constant quality and/or controlled temperature.

MATERIAL FOR FAIRS AND EVENTS

This includes sending the equipment required to attend a trade fair abroad or needed for a specific event, such as audio and lighting equipment. It is also ideal for shipping works of art, exhibition stands or promotional material for a sales event. This service also includes obtaining ATA carnets to move freely between countries.

HIGH-VALUE PRODUCTS

Highly valuable or fragile goods, or products which need to be guarded such as jewellery, vaccinations, biological samples, insulin and other medicines.

SCHEDULED STOCK REPLENISHMENT

This can include fashion items and material for industries that work on a campaign basis, assembly line parts, and other businesses that work to order.

URGENCY

Urgency is the name of the game when unexpected circumstances and problems arise such as the threat of a factory stoppage, stockouts, repairs needed in renewable energy plants, or broken aircraft engines or parts that prevent planes from flying (Aircraft On Ground).

STRENGTHS AND ADVANTAGES OF AIR FREIGHT

  • SPEED

    Air freight is the fastest mode of transport and reduces transit times to a minimum. It also provides the fastest, most immediate solutions to unscheduled or unexpected circumstances.

  • MONITORING

    Goods are monitored at all times. They can be guarded or even carried personally by our staff.

  • SAFETY

    Air freight is the mode of transport with the lowest accident rate, which means it is the safest place to carry your merchandise, especially high value goods.

  • BROAD NETWORK

    There are over 40,000 airports globally which means we can swiftly transport your goods anywhere in the world. Air freight reaches places other modes of transport cannot get to.

  • LOWER WAREHOUSING COSTS

    Goods are collected on the customer’s doorstep just before they are loaded, which does away with warehousing costs. They are then transported directly to the airport and after they have undergone the necessary controls, are loaded into the plane’s hold.

  • SMALL CONSIGNMENTS

    It is cheaper to use air freight for small consignments under 300 kg, as it does away with the need for groupage, when the goods have to be consolidated and deconsolidated, and saves time.
