What is air freight forwarding?
Air freight, also known as air cargo, is the transport of goods via an air carrier. An air freight forwarder is a company that organises air freight shipments, negotiating rates and acting on behalf of the customer to coordinate all the transportation details with the carrier. At Eurosender, we partner with the best freight forwarders and we are able to organise any type of shipment, be it by air, road, sea or railway.
Why are air freight costs higher than those of other transports?
Air freight costs depend not only on the route and dimensions of the item but also on the cost of fuel and maintenance of the aircraft. When summed up, the international air freight rates end up being higher than those for road transport, for example. But, even with higher costs, the air freight service is still the most recommended for transporting high-value goods, urgent cargo or documents.
Do I have insurance when shipping by air?
Yes, all shipments organised in our platform have insurance included in the price. When booking international air freight shipping, our experts will also present you the options for additional insurance coverage that can be purchased for extra protection of your cargo.
What products are most often transported by air?
Air freight is mostly used for transporting high-value items and time-critical deliveries. Since air transportation is the fastest shipping alternative, many businesses use air freight to transport important cargo such as medical equipment or expensive goods. It is also the most recommended service for sending documents abroad.
Can electronic items be transported by air?
When shipping electronic items, you must have in mind whether or not the device is powered by lithium batteries. Items that contain a non-removable lithium battery can be shipped by any transport service if it has a single-cell battery with up to 20Wh or a multi-cell battery ≤ 100Wh. Devices that contain lithium batteries with higher power than these specifications are not allowed to be transported by air freight but can be shipped by road, rail or sea. When sending such items, please contact our logistics experts so they can arrange the safe transport of your item using one of the alternative services.
