Premium airfreight – premium service without the premium cost

With the launch of C4 Air, time-critical airfreight has become a speciality for C4 Logistics.

Other time-critical freight providers are limited to standard air freight – but what if the client needs the extra security of on board carry or the speed of dedicated air charter?

C4Logstics can offer our clients a premium airfreight service. This enhanced service allows shipments to be transported via scheduled flights but with increased security and speed. An option with benefits similar to on board carry or dedicated air charter, but at a significantly lower cost.

How does it work?

C4 Logistics were recently contacted to arrange a shipment from Austria to the UK. The goods needed to arrive the same day without incurring the cost premium associated with dedicated air charter.

Our team of logistics experts offered premium airfreight as the best solution to our client.

The package was immediately collected and transferred to the airport in Linz. To avoid the costs usually incurred by hand-carry freight, the package was instead registered as crew luggage, providing the extra security and peace of mind for our client. The shipment left Linz at 6pm, arriving in Manchester at 10.30pm. Upon its arrival at Manchester the package was immediately transferred via road freight, arriving at its destination the same day.

With the launch of C4 Air, C4 logistics are now the European specialists in time-critical airfreight, offering the widest range of services and options to our clients.
