Air Freight

Air freight is a quick and efficient way to transport goods internationally. When shipping by air, goods are typically transported by cargo planes, which are specifically designed to carry goods in the form of packages, pallets, or containers.

The air freight process typically involves the following steps:



The first step in the air freight process is to book the shipment with a freight forwarder or an airline. The shipper will need to provide details about the goods being shipped, including their size, weight, and value.

Packing and labeling

The goods must be packed in a way that ensures they are protected during transport. They should also be clearly labeled with the shipper's and recipient's contact information.


The shipper will need to prepare the necessary documentation for the shipment, including a commercial invoice, air waybill, and any other required documents.

Collection and delivery

The freight forwarder or airline will arrange for the goods to be collected from the shipper's premises and delivered to the airport. At the destination airport, the goods will be transferred to a local delivery company or customs broker for final delivery to the recipient.

Air freight is a reliable and efficient way to transport goods internationally, especially for time-sensitive shipments. It is generally more expensive than sea freight, but it is faster and allows for a greater level of control and visibility throughout the shipping process.
