Due to the continuing depreciation of US dollar and lack of space on ocean freight vessels we are experiencing a rising demand for the export of cars via air. In spite of higher airfreight shipping costs, transporting vehicles via air has certain advantages over shipping vehicles via ocean freight. While transit time for most destinations via ocean freight ranges from 2 to 8 weeks (not including waiting time for space on the vessel, loading, pick up, customs clearance etc), transit time for air freight service is only 3-5 days for most destinations.
Vehicle export process via air freight can be cumbersome due to requirements on title paperwork, hazardous declaration, inspections, vehicle preparation, cut-off times etc. This is where USAC Airfreight fits into the equation with expertise in this area!
