Time matters for everyone. And it matters for your cargo.

Air cargo is used by global importers and exporters when they need to get goods somewhere rapidly and reliably. While 90% of everything is shipped by ocean freight, air freight connects the world faster!

Why Ship By Air?

Speed – Think five days from a factory in China to a warehouse in the United States. Airplanes are about 30 times faster than ocean liners. Passenger jets cruise at 575 mph, while slow-steaming ocean liners move at 16-18 mph. Use this transit time calculator, based on data from real recent shipments, to get estimates of transit times. In general numbers, air freight is usually 5X the price of trucking and 16X the price of ocean freight, according to the World Bank.

Reliability – People are pickier than packages, which has encouraged the freight market to develop more dependable freight services, and combined with better air freight data movement, shipping by air provides better air freight tracking and the knowledge that your goods will get to the right place at the right time.

Protection – While ocean piracy is on the decline, goods are more likely to be damaged in ocean freight shipping than air shipping.
