Air Freight FAQs

Here, you can find answers to some common questions about air freight shipping, as well as potential inquiries about iContainers' air cargo services

Is air freight more expensive than ocean freight?

Air freight is generally more expensive than ocean freight because of higher demand, customs fees, and faster and more secure shipping. However, there are situations when air freight costs are negligible, such as when shipping small goods in small quantities.

Is air shipping secure and reliable?

Air freight is known to have stringent security measures, making it suitable for shipping low-volume, high-value goods. Because of its speed, air freight also minimizes opportunities for security to be compromised and lowers the risk of damage to the cargo.

What are air freight transit times?

Air freight is sought-after because of its quick transit times, able to get your cargo from point A to point B in only a couple of days. On top of that, it’s also quite flexible, allowing cargo to be loaded in both freighters and passenger aircraft. However, air freight transit times can be affected by timeframes involved in loading and unloading, airport discharge, and customs processing.

What is an international air freight shipping quote?

To ensure you get the most value out of your shipment, you must know the costs of air freight shipping. Air freight quotes will typically cover the following rates and charges: - **Base freight rate**: The actual cost of shipping your goods based on volumetric weight - **Fuel surcharge:** Compensates the carrier for fluctuating fuel costs - **Security fee:** Cost of security screening for the cargo - **Terminal handling charges:** Cost for handling and moving goods in the airport terminal - **Customs clearance fees:** Included for goods for door-to-door shipping - **Cargo insurance fees:** Payment to protect goods from loss or damage during transit - **Trucking fees:** Cost to transport cargo to terminals, airports, and other destinations in door-to-door, door-to-airport, or airport-to-door shipping - **Container freight station fee:** Cost of temporarily storing cargo in the airport

How do I optimize my air freight shipping costs?

Air freight may be expensive, but the good news is that you can reduce your shipping costs by doing the following: - **Choose to ship with iContainers:** We help you find rates that give you value for your money and minimize the shipping cost. Through our platform, you can compare carrier quotes and choose the one that fits your budget. - **Package goods compactly:** Decrease the dimensions of your cargo to reduce volumetric weight and, ultimately, minimize shipping costs. - **Use iContainers’ compliance engine:** Our technology will help you complete documents accurately to reduce the risk of extra charges and delays in the shipping process.
