Air freight is a safe and efficient way of transporting cargo and it is especially useful for transporting high-value products when time is a premium. At Freight Solution Limited, we can be your major source of supply in managing your air freight, and we will manage about every aspect of the logistics management including shipping via air. One of the major advantages of shipping via air is the speed of delivery. A delivery which can take as long as ten days on sea would take no more than three days on air and delivering this fast makes a huge difference in gaining an edge over the competition.
There are different air cargo types and they can be divided into:
- General cargo
- Special cargo
General cargo includes electronics, jewelry, wristwatches, pharmaceuticals and other high value materials. Electronic cargo accounts for about 40% of international cargo and they, along with other general cargo goods need to be transported in excellent condition. Although shipping via air is more expensive than on sea, it means when you consider the savings you will make in time especially when you have a market ready for your goods.
Special cargo includes live animals, dangerous goods and goods which need temperature control. For example, chemicals are dangerous and seafood requires preservation during the course of transportation. Perishable and hazardous goods can be subject to regulation unlike general cargo and require numerous inspections and have to meet various requirements - not every airline will accept items of this nature.
When bringing goods for shipping, ensure you get complete information about what you will be shipping because if you leave out any details you might get penalized. Usually, after testing, most of the cargo can then be classified as general and there should be a report showing the result of this test.
