What is Air Freight?
JIT Removals offers a variety of ways to ship your goods to or from Ireland. Air freight is a popular solution for customers who need to get certain possessions shipped faster than non-essential items.
Air freight is usually more expensive than any other form of transportation. The cost depends on the distance between the point of origin and the destination, as well as the weight of goods to be shipped and also the volume that they take up when packed. While sea freight companies take advantage of increased logistical options, leading to longer transport times and much reduced costs, air freight is the most direct way to get your goods as quickly as possible.
JIT Removals ensure door-to-door air freight services by using our reliable and carefully vetted agents across the world to come to your office or home and carefully pack your belongings for shipment by air. The cost of clearing customs in Ireland or your country of destination is usually included in our quote, with any extra costs arising at the destination port invoiced to you on delivery. Custom rates will vary from country to country.
Here are some commonly asked questions about airfreight:
How do I get my goods to and from the airport?
Haulage involves moving your goods to and from the airports involved. While this cost can be negligible if you’re moving between two major world cities, it can be very significant when you’re moving to a town that isn’t near a major port or to a rural area where there’s a limited choice of local hauliers. Call us today to discuss your exact needs in this regard.
Do you bill by weight alone or by volume?
Airfreight costs are typically calculated using both methods. All freight transportation modes are governed by weight and cubic measurement factors, whereby the Carrier will charge on Actual Weight or Volumetric, whichever is deemed to be the greater.
Do you offer a tracking service so I can monitor the progress of my shipment?
Yes – all JIT Removals air freight is trackable.
