FAQs – Air Freight shipping services

Can I get instant air freight rates online for shipping smaller items?
Yes, with Eurosender, you can get immediate rates for international air freight shipping of parcels and envelopes by selecting the Express or Document Services in our booking tool. With either one of these services, your air freight delivery will take place in 24-72h, and you can benefit from the same-day collection, if available in your location.
What is air freight forwarding?
Air freight or air cargo forwarding is the process of organising the transport of goods via an air carrier. An air freight forwarder is not the carrier itself; it is a company that organises air freight shipments, negotiating rates and act on behalf of the shipper to coordinate all the transportation details with the transporter. At Eurosender, we partner with the best freight forwarders, and we are able to organise any shipment by air, road, sea or railway.
How much does air freight cost?
The air freight costs are calculated based on the dimensions and weight of the cargo, the route selected and the urgency of the delivery. If you want to know how much an air freight service would cost, get a quote in our booking tool for shipping packages of up to 70kg or reach out to our experts if you need a tailored quote.
Why are air freight costs so expensive?
Air freight rates include the handling and transportation of your load (which depends on the dimensions and route selected) and 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.
What is the maximum weight for shipping via air freight?
The maximum weight allowed in air freight transportation depends on the aircraft being used. The Boeing 777, for instance, is able to carry up to 21 tons, while other aircraft can take up to 101 tons. When booking the air freight shipping service with Eurosender, you can ship goods packed on boxes of up to 70kg with our Express Service or pallets via individual offer. When sending bulkier loads via air freight services or booking a full charter flight, our experts will give you all the required information about the maximum weight and dimensions of your load when organising the details of the air transport service.
What products are most often transported by air?
Air freight is mainly 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 you air freight batteries?
It depends on the batterie’s capacity. Non-removable lithium batteries can be shipped by any transport service, including air freight, if they have a single-cell battery with up to 20Wh or a multi-cell battery ≤ 100Wh. 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 to arrange the safe transport of your item using one of the alternative services.
Do I have insurance when shipping by air?
Yes, all shipments organised on our platform have transport insurance included in the price. When booking international air freight shipping for larger loads, our experts will also present you with the options for additional insurance coverage that can be purchased for extra protection of your cargo.
