What’s the difference between air cargo and a courier service?
They are two different ways of transporting freight by air:
When using a courier service your goods won’t be considered as freight but as a postal package. This is an ideal option for small, lightweight parcels requiring urgent transport. However, courier companies don’t provide an integrated logistics service covering aspects like customs clearance, meaning that you may find yourself faced with delays or surcharges.
On the other hand, air freight sent by means of a logistics or forwarding company will guarantee greater security for your operation since its professional team will take care of all necessary details.
