Compared to other methods of cargo delivery, international air transport is not the most popular, due to the high cost of the service. According to statistics, air delivery accounts for 1% of all transported goods, but there are such advantages that sometimes make the choice in favor of aircraft the only possible one. These advantages include:
- delivery speed, which is not comparable to any of the other modes of transport. Air transport makes possible fresh flowers and perishable products to be delivered to the markets of different countries. In addition, airplanes can quickly deliver pharmaceuticals and human organs that seriously ill patients need. The speed of transportation minimizes the risks involved in the transportation of rare and valuable goods (objects of art, jewelry);
- insurance premium on airplanes is half as less compared to marine transport;
- levying customs duties on gross cargo weight, and this figure is lower on airplanes than on sea vessels, since for airplanes the lightest and cheapest packaging is usually chosen.
If we consider the warehouse nuances, air international transportation is more profitable, because often the cargo almost does not require warehousing and, after delivery, is immediately sent to its destination.
The above mentioned and other advantages can save significant amounts, offsetting the high cost of the service.
