Why Choose Plexus Freight For Air Freight To The USA?

The UK exports more than £40 billion worth of goods to the USA annually. America is currently our most important trading partner. But that relationship can only be sustained through reliable freight movement. With Plexus Freight’s international air freight solutions, you can get your goods from the UK to anywhere in America in as little as 24 hours.

Providing a range of service times, including priority (from 24 to 72 hours), standard (five to 10 days), and deferred, Plexus Freight can manage your air freight to and from the USA. While most freight leaves the UK via London Gatwick and London Heathrow, we can provide trucks to carry your goods from anywhere in the UK. And on arrival at the most appropriate airport in America, one of our trusted freight partners will collect your cargo to complete its door to door journey. Ensuring you receive a professional, trackable service from A to B.

Working with a variety of cargo types, including a consolidation of goods mixed with other shipments (CONSOL), we are able to offer a range of freight solutions. Including Delivered at Place (DAP), Delivered Duty Paid (DDP), Free on Board (FOB), and Ex-Works (EXW). With each shipment priced on an individual basis, to ensure the most cost-effective service every time.
As with all forms of freight, the larger your shipment, the more economical the delivery cost will be. But while weight is the main basis on which air freight rates are charged, it’s important to remember that there may be additional charges involved with your transportation. These can include customs brokerage, cargo insurance, documentation fees, airport transfer fees, and warehousing charges, among other things.

While we aim to cater for as wide a range of customer needs as possible, it’s important to remember that not all goods are suitable for shipment via air freight. Some chemicals, lithium batteries, and other dangerous goods will not be accepted by airliners. So, it always makes sense to check with our customer service team if you’re at all uncertain about the eligibility of your cargo.


International freight movement can be a complicated business. And the smallest administrative mistake can lead to expensive delays. That’s why Plexus Freight offers a range of additional freight services. These include the management of essential freight paperwork, including customs and excise administration.
