Are you into fast-moving freight? Expedited shipping? Do you need to move freight from New York and Los Angeles in a day? Did you just read the new Wright Brothers biography, so yeah, you’re into planes? Come on down, because we’ve got Fedex Air shipments, and if you’re paying we’re shipping! Some LTL and Truckload freight brokers steer clear of air shipments. Not FreightPros. Fedex Air offers shippers the opportunity to ship next day to all fifty states in the union. As freight brokers, we have the chance to help you use this great carrier to move your super-expedited freight. When it comes to freight air shipments, time equals money. Yes, air shipments can get LTL freight delivered faster than any other form of transportation, be it LTL or Intermodal. Yes, air freight is taking LTL shipping to another level. No, it is not a free service. Cost comparisons between air freight and standard LTL lead to moment of “wow.” As in, “Wow, it’s expensive to move freight through the air!” And yes, it is. But flying is expensive. Freight can be expensive. Freight + Flying = $$$. Peace of mind is the prize when you’re shipping freight through Fedex Air, or other air carriers. While the transit times are still estimated, air shipments have delivery success rates that are out of this world. Though it might not be financially prudent to ship EVERY LTL item you have via LTL air, the service can be worth it for special circumstances. Like any LTL freight, there are limitations to pay attention to. Some items, such as ammo and guns cannot be shipped. Others, like food or refrigerated materials, can. We can offer third party insurance or you can get insurance through the carrier. And most air carriers like Fedex Air offer a multitude of delivery options, some more expedited than others. So next time you’re thinking, “Should I ship this LTL via plane???” call us. We’ll get you quality air freight quotes, from some of the best carriers in the business. And as usual, we’ll be your full service freight broker; handling everything from pickup to delivery in an effort to make your freight air travel uneventful – but in a good way. Get a quote, don’t be like this guy. cc image courtesy Nabeel Syed via Flickr
