Air freight: A prime ser­vice

Cargo Talk - - International -

ev­ery cus­tomer knows its cost, im­pli­ca­tion on ar­rival. Hence when ul­ti­mate con­sumer is ready to pay and wants prod­uct in time, doorto-door be­ing value added and ef­fec­tive ser­vice is most re­li­able. As a for­warder at ori­gin in part­ner­ship with des­ti­na­tion agent is single point of con­tact for cus­tomer. They have to co-or­di­nate through var­i­ous agen­cies on ar­rival in In­dia (Air­lines/ Ter­mi­nal Op­er­a­tors) by pay­ing their charges and cus­toms in case duty pay­ments post pro­cess­ing of im­port for­mal­i­ties.

Ev­ery business has its own com­mer­cials and this case, be­ing door-to-door, for­warder at ori­gin and des­ti­na­tion has to out­source trans­porta­tion as un­like in­te­gra­tors they do not have own trans­porta­tion. Such costs are part of EXIM and will not af­fect trade, as one can­not have an ob­jec­tion.”

“From the view­point of ter­mi­nal charges, as long as they guar­an­tee meet­ing global bench­marks and do not cre­ate ad­di­tional cos­metic charges, like charg­ing 25 per cent more when goods ar­rive on ex­press ser­vice. All ship­ments ar­riv­ing by air must be ready for de­liv­ery with six to eight hours. Cus­tomers are fully aware what is best for them and in such cases its best to use air freight ser­vice and get goods de­liv­ered fast in­stead of ship­ping by ocean block­ing prod­uct cost/ loss of in­ter­est/

higher in­surance/longer tran­sit time/ pos­si­bil­ity of dam­age and such cus­tomer will al­ways be air freight ship­per on such lanes, where lo­gis­tics tran­sit times are an is­sue,” in­forms Thakkar.
