Air Freight

Why choose air freight?

Because it is quicker, more secure and often cheaper than sea freight. Due to the quick transit time and competitive cost our air freight service is by far the preferred method of transit chosen by the majority of our clients. Although many clients initially believe that sea freight will be the best option for their cargo, they often change their minds after comparing the air freight costs.

How long does it take?

Whilst transit times can vary to each destination, as a general rule door to airport air freight shipments should arrive at the destination within one week of the payment date. Door to Door air freight for Zimbabwe and Nigeria runs on scheduled flights usually Fridays for arrival at destination within 7-12 days.

How is the cost calculated?

It is important to realise that both the weights and the dimensions of the packages can influence the final cost. In most cases it is the actual weight of the packages which will determine the price but if you have items which are large and not heavy then it could be the size which determines the final cost rather than the weight. This is called “volumetric cargo”, for a more detailed explanation please .
