About AVi Logistics
In 1968, Air Van, Inc began operations in Atlanta, Georgia. Herb Matthews and Lex Benton were in the trucking industry and saw the need for final mile delivery of air freight in Atlanta and Jacksonville, Florida. Air Cargo International (ACI) was a company with franchised locations to provide final mile delivery under their managed structure. Air Van was formed as a franchisee of ACI to provide this service in both cities. Air Van grew to provide final mile delivery service, white glove services, customs clearance service, container freight station, Import management service, transload service and more. As we provided these services, clients would often ask for help arranging interstate transportation of these shipments. This lead us to form logistics services for both LTL and FTL
Full Truckload Services Full Truckload (FTL) transportation, or over the road (OTR) trucking is used when a company has a certain commodity that can be put fully in a trailer of a specific measurement (i.e. 48’ or 53’). Logistics Service Providing excellent transportation service is crucial. Every shipment needs a certain amount of attention, whether it being communication with the customer or attention to detail. There are many commodities that require exceptional service (meaning reliability and availability), in which will cost more than commodities that don’t require such high-quality service. Accessorial or Unloading Lumper Charges Accessorial charges are extra costs that are acquired when there is additional work apart from the driver getting loaded and unloaded. For example, detention, having/using a lift gate, unloading lumper fee, etc. These charges are billed separately from the line haul rate of the shipment. Accessorial charges can be avoided if there is enough lead time – it could be added to the line haul rate.
