Think beyond freight costs when considering air cargo shipping

Freight costs are just one factor to consider when evaluating freight service options. Inventory carrying costs, and the sales opportunities associated with being first to market, are important considerations for shippers. The increased use of more fuel-efficient cargo fleets has changed the cost equation.

Find a provider who offers access to the benefits of multiple air services to widen your shipping options. The provider should consider your needs first by selecting the service that best suits your specific shipping requirements and expectations. This allows you to focus on overall transportation spend rather than individual shipment costs. Saving a few dollars here and there on air cargo does not make sense if delaying time to market increases inventory costs or unnecessarily lengthens the cash-to-cash cycle.

Choose services based on more than price alone. In any economic climate, shippers should remember to calculate costs door-to-door. The right blend of spend will address your overall business concerns and optimize your supply chain.

Leverage a provider with multiple service options. Take advantage of a relationship with a logistics provider, like C.H.
