When an expedited timeline is required, the experts at BGI can handle vital shipments and get them there fast and safe.
How Is Air Cargo Shipped?
Air cargo offers the opportunity to ship goods quickly, but it requires precise timing to get the package from one location to another. Without a proper logistics, the shipment may not be delivered in a timely manner.
BGI Worldwide Logistics understands how to plan for transport of goods from door-to-door. With an extensive network of worldwide partners, BGI can handle almost any shipping job, no matter where the goods are located or where they are going. Once the shipping plan is in place, the goods are picked up at the point of the origin and delivered to the destination point in the shortest time possible.
What Are Some of the Factors Affecting Air Cargo Shipments?
Typically, air cargo ships either by pallet or as loose cargo. Air freight shipping costs are based on actual weight or dimensional weight, whichever is greater. In air shipping, space is at a premium, so the more compact a bundle of goods is the less chance it will be judged by dimensional weight and the higher the probability of the shipper paying for actual weight.
Actual weight refers to the poundage of the goods plus any containers or shipping material around them. Dimensional weight, on the other hand, is a measure that is derived from the weight of the package as well as the size of the package. Even if a package is very light, it may cost more to ship it by air than by other means if it takes up a huge amount of room on the plane.
