Air freight FAQs

Chartering a dedicated private plane (or helicopter) to transport your time-critical goods is the best logistics solution for urgent, just-in-time consignments where delays are not an option.

Air freight forwarding is the transportation of goods via scheduled flights on commercial or passenger airlines. Air freight logistic services, range from next-flight-out freight (NFO), through to consolidated services which are best for less-urgent deliveries.

There are restrictions on the shipping of dangerous goods, which must be properly packed, marked and labeled. By providing the UN number, class number and packing instructions of your consignment, Evolution Time Critical can advise whether air shipping is possible, so get in touch.

Dangerous goods include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Lithium/alkaline batteries
  • Biohazards & biochemical products, including medical waste
  • Aerosols & compressed gasses
  • Flammable products, such as paint or alcohol
  • Magnets & magnetic substances
  • Explosives (fireworks)

Further information on the transportation of dangerous or hazardous goods can be found here.

Evolution Time Critical will review a range of aircraft sizes across international airlines in order to accommodate your consignment. The only restrictions would arise from ULD (unit load device) sizes or cargo-door dimensions, however if you contact us with your specific consignment size we can identify the best delivery mode for you.

Evolution Time Critical can also organise the repackaging of consignments in order to meet air freight size and/or weight restrictions.

Evolution Time Critical can organise any specialist loading equipment required for your consignment. Our bespoke service means that we can adapt to your needs.

Check out a successful consignment we completed where we expedited 300 tonnes of injection tooling from China to Europe.

Airfreight shipping costs are based on the cost per kilogram plus ancillary handling and collection / delivery charges.  There is a formaule to convert actual shipment weight to volumetric weight for light/bulky shipments.  This is formulae is (length/cm x width/cm x height/cm)/6000 = 1kg.     

Evolution Time Critical select the best airline and airfreight product to meet your needs.  Airlines have diffing products from premium / must fly to deferred services.  The more premium a product, the more likely it is to fly as booked, but this comes with a higher rate.
