Air Cargo Charters

If you need to get it there now, and need to get everything right the first time, you have come to the right place.

There is much more to an air cargo charter than meets the eye. First you need an aircraft that will accommodate your air cargo. An extra inch in the wrong place, and the cargo will not fit.

Then there is the loading and off-loading. If you don’t have the proper equipment, things don’t always go so well, and there is always the possibility of damaging the air charter aircraft.

With Aspen Aviation in charge of your important air cargo’s transportation, your worries are over. Our Cargo associate has  27 years plus experience, who has always delivered customers goods to there desired location. There have been hic-ups, but it is how you handle the hic-ups that keeps customers coming back.

Most of the hic-ups come from when accurate dimension are not given, or when the quantity multiplies. It is amazing how freight grows. To insure the best air charter aircraft for your air cargo charter, please have accurate measurements. Ball park measurements can work for starters, but again, an extra inch can ruin your whole day.

Also, check to see if the cargo size can be broken down. Pallets are easy to transport by truck, but on an aircraft we may not have the room.

To insure a smooth Air Cargo Charter please have / know the following:

  • Accurate dimensions of each piece.
  • Accurate count of pieces being shipped.
  • Accurate weight of the total shipment.
  • Ask if the pallets can be broken down into smaller commodities.
  • Ask if the item can be tipped without damaging it. This is very important
  • Ask if speed or cost is more important.
  • Ask what time the shipment needs to arrive.                                               
  • A few extra hours of delivery time can mean big savings!
