I have used Powerhouse for logistics requirements both internationally and domestically over the last 15 years, including during Covid, and each time those shipments have been delivered on time, in excellent condition and at a very competitive rate. They are extremely good at what they do. I must pay particular tribute to Martin Surm at Powerhouse, who has demonstrated first class knowledge and expertise to assist with some very challenging jobs around the world and has gone above and beyond every time.

What is Air Freight?

Air freight is a critical component of the global economy, enabling the rapid movement of goods and products across vast distances in a matter of hours or days. It involves the transportation of cargo by air, typically using cargo planes or commercial airlines.

Air freight is used for a wide range of products, and is commonly used for time-sensitive deliveries, such as emergency medical supplies or spare parts for manufacturing.

Advantages of Air Freight?

One of the key advantages of air freight is speed. With planes capable of traveling at high speeds, air freight can transport goods across continents in a matter of hours or days, compared to weeks or months by sea or land. This makes it an ideal option for businesses that need to move goods quickly to meet customer demand or respond to changing market conditions.

Another advantage of air freight is reliability. Airlines have strict schedules and routes, which means that shipments can be tracked and monitored throughout the entire journey. This helps to ensure that goods arrive at their destination on time and in good condition.

Disadvantages of Air Freight?

However, air freight can also be more expensive than other modes of transportation, such as sea or land freight. This is because of the high cost of fuel and the need for specialized equipment and infrastructure. As a result, air freight is often used for high-value or time-sensitive goods, while other types of freight are used for more cost-effective shipments.

Despite its higher cost, air freight remains an essential part of the global supply chain, enabling businesses to move goods quickly and efficiently across the world.
