Important Things to Know about Air Freight Shipping:

Important Things to Know about Air Freight Shipping Air freight shipping is considered the quickest way to deliver goods from one destination to another. It is also the costliest option, which is why many exporters/importers look for ocean freight or other cost-effective options. Your goods are delivered in the shortest time possible. You will certainly have to pay less to ship freight from US to China by ocean, but it will take 20-30 days to deliver it. Alternatively, you can use air cargo and get the same freight delivered to the same location in only 3 days. There are also some restrictions on what types of goods you can ship by air. For instance, you can opt for this option to ship high-value goods, such as electronics, apparel, pharmaceuticals, documents, etc. You cannot ship dangerous goods of any sort, fire extinguishers, life jackets, perishable goods, automotive panels, lithium batteries, and more. In fact, there is a long list of items that you cannot ship by air freight, which is why it is important to take your time to check and confirm that air cargo is the right choice for you. Sometimes, air freight is carried by passenger airlines. Almost every passenger airplane carries some type of air freight; in fact, most airlines make up to 10% of their revenue from the air freight services.

Be sure to test the real-world performance of those goods by sending trial shipments first. You should also get complete information about the volume, weight and nature of the product and use that info when making larger shipments later. Make use of shock, impact, or tilt indicators. These small devices can help you get an idea if your shipment has been mishandled or improperly loaded during transit. You can use that info to determine if air freight shipping is the right choice. Be sure to fill the void before sending your cargo for shipping. There should be no space inside crates, boxes, and pallets.
