    October 31, 2014

    If you’re a business owner or you work for a business that uses transportation regularly, there are plenty of transport methods to choose from. Even if you’re planning domestic transportation rather than international, there can be advantages in choosing air transport rather than land or sea. It’s not as expensive as you think and can often be far more efficient and quicker. Here is a quick run down of what you can gain from using airfreight.

    Safer form of Transport

    Airfreight packages are usually packaged very tightly with strict security measures in place. This means that your package has a much higher chance of getting from A to B undamaged. It also means that theft is much less of an issue than transporting it by sea or land. This is very important as no one likes their goods damaged or stolen as it can affect your companies overall reputation. Check with the airfreight company before hand so you know exactly what measures are taken to keep your packages safe and secure.

    Lower costs

    Often labor costs can be significantly reduced with airfreight. This saves you money in the short term and in the long term if you’re continually using airfreight as a mode of transportation for your business. Also if you’re moving large amounts of goods, using airfreight will also save you money on the packaging. Lets face it, anyway you can save money in your business is a good thing so judge for yourself whether air freight can save you money by comparing prices with other modes of transportation.

    It’s Quick

    Although you might imagine air freight to be a little slow due to the amount of checks and loading required for all the freight, it is much faster overall. Being able to skip all the traffic jams and rough seas is a massive advantage. Faster delivery is usually guaranteed, depending on the length of the journey and location of course. Airfreight also enables you to give a good estimate to your customer of time of delivery. With sea and land transportation, this is not always possible due to unforeseen circumstances such as road accidents and bad weather creating delays.

    These are just a few examples of the benefits that air freight can give your business so next time you need to transport something, have a look and see if air freight is not a better option in the short and long term!
