There are many variables as to why companies ship by air and is the most expensive of shipping options. Yet for many companies they would not consider any other option, this is mainly due to speed in transit times.
Working with well-connected partners who can offer manageable rates and space is highly important. Our partner services cover scheduled aircraft and time and volume critical freight charters, in China we consolidate huge volumes of parcels daily for large online retailers, parcels on arrival are cross-docked and then delivered by waiting courier companies. Amazon FBA services also count for a great deal of volume as well. Feel free to contact us for examples of our current rates.
