There are clear benefits of using air freight services to meet your supply chain logistical needs. These benefits include:
Air freight offers the advantage of speed. The delivery or transportation of goods by air freight is faster and more convenient than ocean freight if you need them delivered quickly. Whenever there is a time-sensitive situation or if perishable goods are being shipped, air freight will be the best choice.
In general, air freight is a more reliable method of shipping freight. Neither air nor ocean freight transportation is immune from delays since inclement weather or increased demand can cause delays. However, the delay in air freight will not be as significant as that in ocean freight. Ships may need numerous days to get back on schedule because of issues at ports, while flights tend to be rescheduled fairly quickly.
In logistics, customs play a crucial role. In order for goods to reach international destinations, they must pass through customs. It is generally quicker for air shipments to clear customs than ocean shipments. Sea freight can take up to a day to clear customs, while air freight can clear in hours. The faster the clearance process is, the more efficiently the goods can be moved between locations.
Insurance premiums for air freight shipments are more cost-effective than those for ocean freight. By shipping by air, goods have shorter transit times and airlines have higher levels of security, reducing the risk of damage, loss, or theft. Consequently, the cost of insurance is determined by the reduced risk. Cost-effective insurance premiums for air freight are the result of increased security, reduced transit times, and reduced risk.

Air freight is the transportation of goods via air carrier. Air cargo is flown on both commercial and chartered air carriers and is the quickest form of international cargo shipping when compared to ocean and land freight.
According to the World Bank, air freight is 12-16 times more expensive than ocean freight, largely as a result of the lack of space on an air carrier when compared to a cargo ship. You get what you pay for, however -increased speed and reliability, expedited customs clearance and lower insurance premiums.
Air freight costs are based on three factors; type of cargo (size, weight, special cargo), its destination, and the speed of delivery. There are also additional costs such as cargo insurance, airline terminal handling fees, customs clearance, and security surcharges. The best way to calculate your air freight costs is to send our team details of your shipment and we will do it for you.
Sea freight is cheaper than air freight. If cost reduction is at the top of your list of priorities then sea freight shipping might be your best option. Despite longer shipping times and increased possibilities of delays – sea freight is 10-13x cheaper than air freight.
Freight forwarding is the strategic planning and execution of logistics for international deliveries on behalf of shippers. As part of their responsibilities, freight forwarders negotiate freight rates, track containers, prepare customs documents, and consolidate freight.
