Air freight logistics is the shipment of goods via a chartered or scheduled air carrier. Goods moved via air have the advantage of being transported at high speed, precision and directly which could prove advantageous if the shipment is time sensitive. Shipments that are transported via air carrier go through a higher level of security which makes it one of the most secure ways to transport goods. There are a few choices when it comes to organizing an air freight delivery:
Consolidated Freight – Where one flight contains many shipments.
Back to back or Direct Services – Where a flight contains one single shipment.
Charter Services – Where an entire freight plane is chartered for a single air freight delivery.
