Air freight transportation is a fast and efficient shipping method that is particularly valuable to businesses needing to get products to international customers quickly or stay on track with a just-in-time manufacturing model. The primary downside of air shipping is that the cost can be significantly higher than ocean freight forwarding. Fortunately, Global Shipping can help lower this cost while also providing exceptional customer support.
Global Shipping has no interest in being a high-volume, one-model-fits-all provider. Our clients are not just numbers, and every shipment is given the individual attention to detail it requires. While many larger air freight forwarders are bound by consolidation schedules, we are able to offer greater flexibility for our clients and their cargo.
Indirect Air Carriers are required to implement a rigorous security program that meets TSA standards, and Global Shipping has met that requirement. As a result, we are able to work with passenger planes to transport cargo, which can be significantly less expensive than shipping with a freighter plane.
Any products that might endanger the safety of people onboard an aircraft are considered ‘Dangerous Goods’ by the IATA. These items include lithium batteries, certain types of fuel cells, and infectious substances (such as virus samples being used in medical research). Global Shipping has received Dangerous Goods-certification from the IATA, allowing us to work out safe shipping methods for any items that may be considered dangerous goods.
We can consolidate your air freight with other companies’ freight in order to give you a lower cost shipping option, but we can also provide direct services for your freight only. This second option is ideal for larger shipments or shipments that need to get to their destination as soon as possible.
When you require the exclusive use of a plane to move an urgent shipment, Global Shipping can quickly negotiate an air charter for you. With our strong attention to individual clients, you won’t have to worry about your charter request getting lost in the shuffle.
Members of an Extended & Reliable Network of Global Agents: Global Shipping uses LOG-NET supply chain management software, which allows us to easily manage shipping logistics for all our clients. We are also members of the WCA Family, the world’s largest group of independent freight forwarders. Through our membership, we are able to negotiate charter flights to wherever your cargo needs to go.

Through our accreditation, we are also able to work with the large distribution network of IATA member airlines.
Complete Documentation of Exports & Imports: When you’re shipping and receiving internationally, you’ll need thorough import and export documentation in order to get your products through customs. Global Shipping can complete this documentation so that you have one less obstacle.
Competitive Pricing: While it would be nice if we could all say, “Price is no object”, we understand you have a bottom line to think about. With Global Shipping, you’ll get professional freight shipping services at highly competitive rates.
