What is an Air Freight Forwarder?
A type of freight forwarder who specializes in air cargo and who performs consolidation of consignments in its own name.
Forwarders are vital for international airlines.
Forwarders book cargo space on planes more than any other supply chain partner. According to the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA), more than 80% of international air cargo activity can be attributed to forwarders.
When freight is tagged for air treatment, it’s usually because:
- It is of particularly high value or
- Its delivery is time-sensitive
And because time-sensitive stickers are slapped on cargo with increasing frequency as customer expectation for speedy delivery continues its upturn, cargo space in the air is a hotter commodity than ever before.
For many this would be a disruptive trend. At CAF we’re armed to combat it — we take things in stride.
When threatening supply chain hiccups have cropped up, CAF has provided emergency air charter service.
That’s just how we fly.
