Air Charter logistics service: a luxury or the ideal solution for your urgent cargo?

Is chartering a flight really far beyond your project’s budget?

In the fast-moving and complex supply chains of specialized industries, this may be the best idea to avoid wasting money on fines – or even worse: losing your client!

When you face the risk of a line stoppage or not delivering a time-sensitive project on time, having a Time Critical Cargo team at your disposal is fundamental to make the right decision fast.

With over 20 years of experience and a dedicated focus on sectors such as Automotive, Aerospace, Healthcare, and Hi-Tech, xpd global is your partner for logistics solutions, especially when ensuring the timely delivery of components and materials is crucial.

Air Charter services may be the right answer to your logistics chain equation.

“Chartering an aircraft is usually the most recommended Time Critical Cargo solution when the cost of a line disruption, the financial penalties involved, and even the risk of losing a client are greater than this investment,” clarifies Martha González, xpd global’s charter flights and on-board courier teams’ director.

Which aircrafts can be chartered?

First, when you think of Air Charter services, you may be thinking of the marvelous and huge Antonov, Boeing 747 and Boeing 777.

But this service actually uses different types of aircrafts available for the civil aviation. All have special measurements and compartments – the model chosen depends on the weight and volume of the urgent cargo.

“When we say these airplanes are ‘available for the civil aviation’, it means that the rules that apply in those cases are different from the ones that the ones that affect commercial airlines (commercial aviation)”, explains Ms. Gonzalez.

“Thereby, their operation is also different. For instance, to fly big airplanes, it is necessary to get permission to land the aircraft on a specific airport. Other point to be considered is that airports manage different timeframes for this kind of movements – so we can request a time extension if we’re transporting cargo at night. Besides, we can coordinate international commerce procedures with the customs authority in charge”, clarifies Ms. González.

She also gives us as an example the Mexico-United States-Canada (T-MEC) region, where the most common aircrafts are Metroliners, Falcons, Lears and Shorts 360, that can carry between 3,000 and 7,000 pounds.

Helicopters can also be chartered!
