Air Cargo Charter
Need help with air cargo charter?
This page focuses on courier services around cargo (more specifically named air cargo charter.) If you are looking to find out more on what this is, or for a company which can help with your requirements, read on to learn more information and details.
What is an air cargo charter service?
Perhaps initially it is best to explain what it isn’t!
If you are looking for transport of cargo locally, or below a certain weight (we normally recommend around 30kg,) then this service is not geared for these types of jobs and you would be better searching for one of our other services which may be more targeted.
Generally, this service focuses on bulky cargo items which need to be shipped internationally. This service is perfect for anyone who has a planned timeline in mind, but can also be used for rapid (‘last minute’) services too.
What are some of the considerations for air cargo charter services?
(1) The process of shipping air cargo is a precise and time critical activity with little room for mistakes. If this cargo is delivered at short notice, then these factors come into play even more. A company needs to be large and experienced enough to be able to handle this.
(2) What types of goods are being transported? Air cargo charter can involve all ranges of goods. With aircraft, restrictions and prohibitions on the type of goods that can be sent are stricter. ‘Dangerous goods’ here can include innocent items which contain flammables, corrosives or toxic shipments for example. Your courier needs to be aware of all requirements and advise / act accordingly to ensure compliance.
(3) What is the destination of the cargo? Some places are much more remote than others. This has consequences because it can have logistical and practical problems. Good air cargo charter couriers will be able to recognise when issues might arise and help give the best alternative advice.
(4) How bulky are the goods?
The larger the consignment the more difficult it becomes to handle. That is just a simple fact. Choosing someone who has expert experience in this area can really help make a difference with very large and bulky consignments.
