The Top 5 Benefits of Air Cargo


We’ve all dreamt of chartering a private jet to an exotic beach or dream holiday destination at some point; no long lines, no asking other people to move for the bathroom, no strangers, more leg room. For the majority of us; it will continue to be a pipeline dream due to expense. However, this is often not the case when shipping cargo.

Air cargo charters are a reliable shipping option that promotes speed in getting your goods transported to where they need to go. They are also flexible. They allow you to choose the cargo aircraft that suits the size of your pallets, and you get to choose the departure and arrival airports and timings.

1. Speed and Reliability

Arguably, the biggest advantage of air cargo charters is the speed in which goods get transported. This mode of transportation offers the fastest shipping times, along with accurate and reliable departure and arrival times, with some cargo flights being booked and flown on the same day. For shippers with time-sensitive cargo, such as perishable goods or certain medical supplies, air transport is often the only option.

2. Security

While airport security can generally be described as a hassle for those of us who fly as passengers, strict regulations and screenings benefit air freight shippers. Air cargo offers a high-level of security. Safety controls and protocols over air cargo are tightly managed and leave little room for theft or potential damage.

3. Locations Served

A huge benefit of charter flights is that most locations can be serviced by air. Even small, remote places can be accessed by smaller aircraft, as most airlines have a large network of destinations that covers almost the entire globe.

4. Tracking

The majority of air freight service providers offer web-based aircraft tracking, enabling you to check your cargo status in real time, from departure to arrival. The CharterSync platform allows you to track your cargo in real time via our platform, and our operations team are on hand 24/7 for any questions you may have.

5. Less packaging required

Air cargo shipments generally use fewer packaging materials as they are shipped in very lightweight materials, especially when compared with sea freight. This saves you both time and money on packaging materials and containers and has environmental advantages too!
