Keeping the cost low for our customers



Many customers find themselves requiring hand carry services for high value or sensitive items. This is a premium service offered by many time-critical freight companies but can come with an inflated cost to the customer.

If our team at C4 Logistics are asked to provide this service, we automatically ask ourselves one question – is this the most cost effective and suitable option for our client?

Alternatively we can offer the replacement of our default hand-carry option with a premium air freight service. If items are of high value or sensitive in nature, C4 can arrange for them to be included with the crew luggage for extra security.

The benefits to our customer of this option include: faster shipment times, reduced costs and added security for the goods.

Many time-critical freight companies will offer default carry options to their customers regardless of the cost. At C4 Logistics our team will always research alternative freight options with one goal in mind – to keep the costs as low as possible for our customers.
