Out-sized Air Cargo

Whether it is an organ for transplant or a piece of machinery to get a plant up and running again, our air cargo professionals will get your company back on track.
Air Cargo Cost
Air cargo costs are largely a function of how much, how big and how far. We’ll want to know what it is you wish to move (ensuring if it is HAZMAT it is treated appropriately), along with detailed weights and dimensions. We’ll also need to know the closest airport that you are able to get the cargo to as well as your desired destination. Depending on the size and weight of your cargo, we may need to utilize a large commercial airport that can accommodate a large freighter aircraft. Our team will walk your through what your responsibilities are as a shipper as well as who is responsible for “build and break” and other functions associated with air cargo transportation. It will also be important to understand if your cargo is temperature or pressure sensitive. While air cargo charter is the fastest and most efficient means of cargo transport, it does cost more than ocean, ground, or consolidating with freight on established scheduled routes. Air Planning can help you to determine if the cost trade-off for speed makes sense for you.
