Every mode of transport has its own benefits and drawbacks. Air freight is frequently used for high-value shipments and low-volume shipments, as you might imagine. You already know this. So what are the other (common) reasons for using air freight?
1. The fastest shipping method
When you need to move goods quickly, air freight is the best option compared to sea freight or road transport (after space travel, that is).
2. Highly reliable arrival and departure times
As airlines tend to be highly organized, arrival and departure times of flights are highly reliable. There are usually flight departures every hour, so even missing a flight wouldn't cause much of a delay.
3. Send your cargo almost anywhere
Most airlines have a network of destinations that almost covers the entire world. As a result, you can send the shipment almost anywhere in the world.
4. Low insurance premium means large savings
The insurance premium for air cargo is lower since the transportation time is relatively short. Despite the fact that air freight is expensive, insurance costs are reduced due to the lower cost.
5. High level of security and reduced risk of theft and damage
As the airport safety controls over cargo are tightly controlled, shipping by air offers a high level of security. The tight management of airport controls also minimizes the risk of damage and theft to cargo.
6. Less need for warehousing and fewer items in stock
Due to the quicker transit times of air freight, there is less need for local warehousing and you do not need to stock items. Cargo clearance, cargo inspection, and cargo handlers are more efficient, as most cargo is cleared within a matter of hours.
7. Less packaging required
Air shipments require less packing than ocean shipments, for example. In other words, you save both time and money by providing additional packing services.
8. Follow the status of your cargo
With many companies, you can track your cargo using a web application, which means you can stay informed on the status of your cargo from departure to arrival.
