Common Questions

A freight forwarder is a business specializing in the arrangement of cargo shipments on behalf of shippers. Typically it provides a variety of logistics and transportation services including air, ocean and barge services as well as inland transportation from origin and/or to destination. A freight forwarder also provides documentation services and works with the customer to move goods efficiently.

Cargo air charter and on-demand services are designed to fill the gaps of traditional air shipping that offer air freight services to destinations in regular, scheduled intervals. An air cargo charter or on-demand service typically coordinates the specialized movement of cargo from one location to another. This could be for cargo too big to move on a normal aircraft or needed in a time frame that isn’t available through normal, scheduled services.

Charters and on-demand service are used when a delivery can’t wait and there are no scheduled flights available. Talk to the logistics company and work with them to find the best solution based on your time frame, the cargo you are shipping and the origin and destination.

Primarily because of the space availability. Although much of the world’s air cargo moves on freighter aircraft, passenger aircraft are also utilized. With airlines using smaller planes, cargo capacity is diminished. Air cargo typically moves on a next-flight-out or five-day delivery time frame.

Air freight is typically used for cargo like parts needed to keep machines running, perishable items such as fresh and frozen seafood and high-value items where time sensitivity is important.
