Air freight is the quickest way to move goods around the world. Planes can get goods from one side of the planet to another within a matter of days. When you add door service and customs clearance on each end, total transit time door to door can range from 2 to 5 days depending on the countries.

Air freight is generally several times more expensive than ocean freight. It should be used only for urgent shipments. However, air freight can be very competitive or even cheaper for many smaller shipments (generally under 500 kg). When packaging product, it is important to keep in mind the size restrictions on many aircraft. The most common is the height restriction of 63” (160 cm) on wide body passenger planes.
