How quickly can we move international air fright cargo?

When customers need freight delivered to a foreign country, or imported into the US as quickly as possible, the best mode of transportation is to ship cargo via air freight. The following are three different air import and air export options that TForce Worldwide has to offer.

Other commonly used open flatbed trailer types include:

  • Expedited: 1-2 days transit time
  • Premier: 3-4 days transit time
  • Value: 5-7 days transit time

* Transit times are shown as airport-to-airport

Ocean Import and Ocean Export Freight Cargo Services

Full Container Load (FCL)

Typically, a full container is the best option for customers that want better overall transit time and have enough freight to occupy two-thirds or more of the available interior space.

Less Than Container Load (LCL)

LCL ocean shipments are a good choice for customers that want the lowest cost option and do not have enough freight to occupy more than half a shipping container.

Breakbulk and Out-of-Gauge Cargo

Our international specialist team will coordinate larger ocean shipments using flat rack containers for over-sized items, open top containers for over-height cargo or via break bulk to ship large, non-containerized cargo under deck, on deck or between a cargo vessel’s decks.
