Trasporto aereo e spedizioni internazionali: icona di un aereo che vola intorno al globo

Thanks to excellent relationships with the best airlines in the world, we guarantee fast and effective air transport

The choice to ship goods by air represents a constantly growing trend, whether it's for national or international shipments. Transport can take place on all-cargo aircraft, dedicated to freight only, or within dedicated units in the cargo holds of passenger aircraft, or even occupying a portion of the main deck (combi aircraft). CSW Italia has a network of connections worldwide, and the flexibility with which we organize shipments allows us to always find the best solution.

THE PROS AND CONS OF AIR TRANSPORT
Air shipments guarantee deliveries in tight timelines, reduce the risk of damage to goods (allowing for reduced packaging costs), and make it possible to quickly move perishable goods between even very distant locations.

The cons of air transport are the costs (air shipments are the most expensive), the limited available space (compared to sea transport), and the strong dependence of travel on environmental conditions (in case of exceptional bad weather, an airport may decide to suspend flights).

HOWEVER, HOW MUCH DO AIR SHIPMENTS COST?
To calculate the rate for a shipment, you need to start from the chargeable kilograms and multiply them by the rate applied by the airline based on destination, chosen service, and delivery times.

Additional costs sometimes applied by airlines should also be taken into consideration, which can be found under "taxes and surcharges" and affect the total cost of air transport, such as the fuel surcharge (variable based on fuel cost), the security surcharge, and other items defined by the difficulty of transport.

Here at CSW Italia we can help you design and select the best air transport and services for you, to ensure fast and effective delivery of goods.
