The Benefits of Freight by Air

If you have the option, then using air freight to Australia or out of Australia can be very beneficial. The following will list some of the key benefits of using this transportation method for your cargo.


It may not come as a surprise that air freight forwarding is the fastest way to move cargo from point A to point B. A plane is not delayed by traffic, detours, roadworks, and a multitude of other occurrences that can cause delays in transportation.

Moving cargo by plane can see it arrive in another country in a matter of hours, rather than a matter of weeks with conventional sea shipping.


Transporting cargo via plane is also very reliable since airlines are highly organised when it comes to scheduling. Partnering with an air freight forwarder like BCR means that you can easily keep up with these schedules and ensure that your supply chain benefits the most from utilising plan cargo transportation.


Some remote locations around the world aren’t easily accessible by sea or road transport. However, many professional air freight companies have vast networks of destinations that they can access, allowing you to move your cargo pretty much anywhere you want.


If you have a concern about your cargo being damaged or stolen, then using plane transport is a highly secure option. This is because plane transport involves a low amount of handling, and safety/security at airports is closely monitored and maintained.

Reduced Costs

Transporting your goods by plane also means that you can minimise costs associated with packing, warehousing and insurance. Speedier transport means that you can reduce your dependence on warehousing and enjoy lower insurance premiums.


The meticulous attention to detail of airports and their staff means that they’re recording a whole lot of data that makes it easy to track your cargo on its journey. When you work with BCR, we ensure that you have all the insight you need into the status of your cargo.
