Need for Speed
Stan Wraight, Senior Executive Director of Strategic Aviation Solutions International and Jan Krems, President of United Cargo, argue that airfreight is the only choice, if speed is your priority.
What are the main advantages when transporting products by air?
Stan Wraight: First, speed and security: goods that are worth thousands, sometimes millions, in a single shipment benefit from lower insurances fees, lighter packing, faster payment for goods and so on. Second, lower inventory carrying costs and reduced investment in distribution centers overseas to store inventory. Third, e-commerce service providers are setting new standards in delivery expectations by B2B and B2C clients – and these cannot be met by slower sea freight.
Jan Krems: The central difference between sea and airfreight is that sea is simply a no-go for certain products – it just isn’t fast enough. An excellent example of this is the recent increase in the use of personalized or precision medicine, with products tailored to an individual patient based on a number of distinct variables. Globally, our TempControl experts are reporting a rapid rise in the need for quick and immediate transport of these time-sensitive and patient-specific solutions.
