Air Freight

time critical logistics services from our Hand Carry Service to Next Flight Out (NFO) logistics

We offer choice and capacity as an air freight partner and have the ability to move pretty much anything that can fit on a plane

Air Freight is often the fastest method of transport of delivery of cargo and consignments and is certainly key in time-critical logistics. Global markets and trade dictate the need to have an Air Freight and logistics partner to literally ‘take the load’. Freights of this type are best suited for urgent consignments that have a strict deadline and are unsuitable for land, post or sea freight.

AMCO can provide direct and indirect flight options to suit timescales and budgets. They usually becomes equitable with consignments over 45 chargeable kilos.

Tracking – Cargo status updates, exception notifications

Chargeable kilo weight (air freight rates) are calculated on a weight or cube basis and quoted per kg/6 dm³. The formula for chargeable weight by size is: Cube times 1,000,000 / 6000”. The weight declared on the Airway Bill of lading is then the greater of the two.

This is also known as the volume ratio (1:6 or 1 m³ = 167 kg). That means you either pay for the weight or the space necessary for the transport of your consignment.
