Short delivery times – punctuality of air transports
In transport logistics, punctuality and fast, safe deliveries are the most important factors. Among the transport methods, air transport wins the race in terms of speed, safety and reliability. However, they are somewhat more expensive than other types of transport such as sea freight or rail transport. Of course, the latter transport methods can be planned accordingly to ensure a smooth supply chain. However, there are certain goods for which thorough planning of the transport is not (or no longer) possible. In the same way, there are sometimes situations where air transport is the only (good) option for moving the goods. However, in the case of air freight, it is of course always necessary to plan the transport to the airport or from the airport to the customer or to the next station of the goods. Here, freight forwarders can not only organise carriers in cooperation, but also take over the supply chain management beyond that – as a so-called lead logistics provider like Huettemann is.
