Air Freight For Better Business

Speed is everything in business. Whether it’s speed of getting a deal done, speed of purchase or simply speed of transportation, speed gets you ahead of the game and ahead of the competition. It’s what could stand you out from the rest of your rivals. Think about it. If your product takes days to arrive whilst your competitor’s takes weeks, chances are the customer will be swayed towards using your company. It’s certainly something to think about and with a steady decrease in air freight price, it’s also a legitimate option for a small business which means they can now compete with much larger companies in the same industry. Let’s have a look at some of the overall advantages of using air freight as opposed to another form of transportation.

Speed

 

It goes without saying that a plane is obviously faster than a large cargo ship. What you must work out before hand is whether you’d prefer to use air freight which is indeed faster but has limited capacity or us a cargo ship where you can transport far more but at the expense of time. If it’s simply speed you’re after however, air freight wins every time.

Security

 

Now days most forms of logistical transport is pretty secure but with air freight, it’s usually far more secure than using a cargo ship for instance. Sometimes cargo containers get misplaced and lost track of when getting unloaded off a ship or even lost due to bad weather at sea. This is certainly not a problem with air freight because the capacity is far smaller and the goods you’re transporting will usually be much less than if you’re using a ship.

 

Reliability

 

This isn’t reliability as relates to breakages of the machines and equipment, but more to do to with keeping on schedule with delivery times and dates. Air freight is far less likely to suffer delays and if there are delays, it’s usually a matter of hours at a time, which isn’t a massive problem. With ocean freight however, it can be quite common for shipments to arrive a day or even days late due to poor weather and unforeseen circumstances. If you want a better chance of your goods arriving on time, it’s probably best to stick to air freight!

So next time you’re thinking about using a logistics company for transporting your business’s goods, instead of going for the cargo ship, look towards air freight and see if it fits your business needs better.
