As implied, the cargo is collected and delivered to the physical address at the destination, this is more expensive but preferred by certain customers as it minimises their involvement with customs and physical handling. Freight Innovations takes care of the delivery which includes customs documentation and clearance and the “local” delivery. This option is sometimes chosen for larger consignments where special handling is required. Transit times will vary, as a rule of thumb, one week to reach the destination and one week to clear through customs, therefore approximately two weeks but may take a few days only, depending on the city, country and customs.
Freight Innovations arranges for the cargo to arrive at the destined airport, the client handles the paperwork and clears the shipment at customs. He is then also responsible for the local delivery. The main difference is the cost as this is a much cheaper option. Transit time may vary, depending on flight availability and could be between 3 and 7 days.
International air freight exports and imports are serviced by a freighter plane; these are able to accommodate very large shipments. This service is slower than international courier due to constraints.
