The cost-saving benefits of Approved air freight
Just like it’s typically cheaper to travel by car than by plane, it’s true and unavoidable that fundamental shipping costs are typically higher with air freight than they are with ocean freight or over-the-ground cargo shipping.
However, Approved is able to reduce costs for our air freight customers on the back-end: expediting freight shipping by air can help eliminate the costs of handling and warehousing that are inherent in other means of freight transportation.Read More
Most importantly, as part of a larger freight services mix (which includes ocean shipping, rail, and trucking options) air freight adds the often business-critical component of near-immediacy and/or overnight shipping for time-sensitive and/or perishable cargo. If you’re in the business of getting your goods from, say, a manufacturing plant in one corner of the world to a retail outlet in another, a partner that can offer a complete menu of freight services is critical — and using the same partner for air, ocean, and land is a cost-effective course of action.
From start (pickup) to finish (delivery)
Approved is part of The DeWitt Companies family, which includes Royal Hawaiian Movers, Royal Alaskan Movers, DeWitt Guam, and DeWitt Worldwide. This means we have teams, equipment, and expertise at your cargo’s point of origin, its final destination, and most all points in-between.
And Approved does far more than simply move your freight on and off an airplane. We will assign a dedicated account manager to address all your business needs, an expert who both understands the ins and outs of air freight and who can also present all available shipping options to ensure your freight needs are addressed as cost-effectively as possible.
We have teams that can come to your cargo’s point of origin and assist with planning, as well as loading and wrapping of cargo, to ensure it’s safe and secure throughout every step of the journey. We have teams that track your cargo throughout shipping and deliver reports back to you. And we have teams that help offload, deliver, assemble, and even install your cargo at its final destination.
Why settle for an air freight services partner that only goes from airport to airport? Approved ensures your cargo goes from door to door.
