Air freight can be quite daunting for the uninitiated as there are a myriad of routes to any given destination. So instead of being ‘fobbed off’ with just one rate and one service offering, we will offer a choice of ‘Direct’ or ‘Indirect’ services to suit both your time frame and your budget.
Direct services will be on national flag carriers e.g. London to Singapore on British Airways or Singapore Airlines. Indirect services, which are often cheaper, would fly first to another country and so be on those countries airlines e.g. London to Singapore on Air France would fly first to Paris and then to Singapore.
For imports into the UK whether your shipping terms are FOB origin port to your door – where our local partner office liaises with your supplier under our careful guidance – or whether you require an all inclusive service from your suppliers factory to your door – leave all the shipping arrangements to Freedom Logistics UK.
Likewise for export shipments, we offer the full range of services to suit your particular selling terms; FCA, CPT, CIP, DAP, DDP.
Our competitive airfreight services provide you with the most cost effective solutions for your requirements – so for complete peace of mind leave all your air shipping arrangements to Freedom Logistics.
Air Cargo Industry
The rise of international trade has fuelled continued growth for the global air cargo market. The industry is a circa $60 billion business that transports 35% of the value of goods traded internationally. At the same time, the increasing emphasis on just-in-time delivery has added to the importance of managing this growth and improving delivery precision. Airlines and freight forwarders of all sizes are seeking ways to reduce costs and standardise their processes whilst continuing to keep their customers satisfied.
The UK is one of the world’s most important air transport hubs, with over 160 airlines flying into and out of our airports, including the world’s busiest international airport, Heathrow. Freedom Logistics are your industry experts, managing airfreight, door to door, flying goods quickly and safely.
Airlines now offer a variety of cargo products providing more flexibility to accommodate most shipper’s needs including express priority offering shorter leads times for handling at departure and origin. Freedom can advise, recommend and manage the right solution for you.
Air Cargo Security Screening
While almost a decade has passed since 9/11, many countries are still developing their air cargo security regimes – and those in existence are subject to frequent refinement.
The air cargo industry, manufacturers, exporters, importers and consumers will face the prospect of significant global supply chain disruption if the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) enforces a proposed deadline of December 31st 2011 for 100% screening of all international inbound cargo on passenger aircraft. Freedom Logistics experienced US partners are C-TPAT certified so better placed to help you get your shipment compliant and moved through US airports without delay.
Freedom Logistics services provide compliance with the UK aviation security procedures and all air cargo can be screened at the departure airport in accordance with the latest Government regulations using X-ray or for denser freight RASCO.
