“There are a few ways value can be salvaged from a supply chain crisis. And the first steps involve achieving the right balance between offence and defense. In this context, offence involves proposing new solutions such as Life Science or Healthcare Vertical and GEODIS AirDirect solutions that create value for our customers. On the other hand, defense is all about controlling, managing, and adapting our productivity and base cost to bring further efficiency.”

 

Casper Hedemann, Senior Vice President - Global Air Freight

Frequently asked questions

Whether you are managing local or international shipments, your logistics partner will liaise with the best carrier to pick up your shipment from a warehouse or holding facility. Then, the air freight is loaded onto the carrier and taken to the origin airport. And finally, once it arrives at the destination airport, the carrier will be responsible for last-mile delivery. 

Air freight delivery services are best for retail businesses or wholesalers that wish to experience the following benefits: 

  • Offers the speediest shipping  
  • Most reliable and secure, which means low risk of theft or damage 
  • Allows for cargo to be transported anywhere in the world 
  • Does not charge an extremely high insurance premium  
  • Is not very packaging-intensive 

You pay for the weight, or the space consumed, when transporting your goods via an air freight service. And it is quoted per kg/6 dm3.  

 

The formula for this calculation is: Length (cm) x width (cm) x height (cm) / 6000 (the volumetric weight in kg). Or you could simply rely on your logistics partner or air freight experts to manage these calculations for you. 

The fastest transit time is the biggest benefit of air freight over other modes of shipping. With air cargo, you can get goods delivered within the same day, reliably. 

The weight limit for air freight varies based on the type of aircraft. For example, passenger aircrafts have height restrictions of up to 160cm, while B747 or B777 freighter aircrafts can go up to 300cm in height. The weight per piece also varies based on aircraft type. Passenger aircrafts usually accept up to 4000 kg per piece, whereas on freighter aircrafts it can go up to 50,000 kg.
