Air forwarding is referred to as the use of passenger/commercial airplanes to transfer goods to regional/international locations. It is the quickest transportation mode for sending freight across long distances, and it provides superior product handling and great visibility of the products in transit.
If you are an air freight forwarder, you know what a challenge it can be to make shipments, appointments, and processes insightful in order to meet your customers’ demands and stay relevant. Are you wasting time manually entering data into different systems? Is it a struggle to provide your customers, customs, and airliners with up-to-date information? Or are your customers frustrated because you can not meet their needs?
Don’t limit your business with complicated and outdated processes. Stay ahead of your competition, answer customer questions with ease and support growth without difficulty. Give yourself the power to execute with up-to-date software and reduce the complexity of IT and associated costs.
Ever since the advent of globalization, air forwarding has become an integral part of the supply chains. It provides the shortest shipping times, which is now becoming a basic requirement for many companies due to the next-day delivery model. Also, air forwarding allows businesses to get easier access to their cargo as compared to maritime shipping. Perishable goods are also one of the biggest reasons behind the high demand for air shipping.

Consolidated Forwarding Or Console
This is the most economical option where the shipper combines your cargo with other freight, making it more affordable.
These flights have a higher running frequency and thereby cost a premium over the consolidated forwarding costs.
Back To Back/Direct Service
When the freight forwarder has a significant number of items to be shipped, they use direct service flights for sending the cargo in the next flight to the destination.
For larger and important consignments, an entire aircraft may be chartered to ensure prompt and dedicated delivery.
Next Flight Out
For smaller packages that need to be transported immediately, the next flight out model is used to furnish the demand right away.
