Air Freight That Delivers On Time, Every Time

In today’s “need it yesterday” business world, air freight plays a critical role in your company’s global supply chain. Every year, more than $6 trillion in goods are carried by air — or $18.6 billion worth of goods daily.

Your customers have set the bar high when it comes to service, responsiveness, and quick fulfillment. Whether you need to ship temperature-sensitive immunizations to patients quickly, get your high-dollar electronics to retailers for a big promotion, or send a critical part to a stalled assembly line within a few hours, air freight is the solution. DB Schenker provides maximum levels of flexibility and optimization for all your air cargo needs.

The fastest way to get goods to their destinations, air freight helps you reach these and other time-sensitive projects by providing fast delivery of cargo while minimizing unexpected delays or obstacles.
