Why Choose Plexus Freight Air Freight From The USA?

At Plexus Freight, we might be best-known for our European shipping services. But we also operate a range of global freight solutions. Including air freight to and from the USA. And with the US currently the UK’s largest goods and services trading partner, finding the right freight solution can be imperative for any business. Offering a range of service times – from 24 to 72 hours for time-sensitive goods to five to 10 days for less urgent shipments – Plexus Freight can manage your air freight to and from the USA. Whether from Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, or anywhere else in America.

While most freight enters the UK via London Gatwick, London Heathrow, and occasionally smaller airports, such as Bristol, Luton, and Stansted, we can provide trucks to complete the remainder of your cargo’s door to door journey. Providing the professional, trackable (via Airway Bill number and the Plexus in-house tracking system) service we have become known for.

With a choice of freight solutions available – Delivered at Place (DAP), Delivered Duty Paid (DDP), Free on Board (FOB), Ex-Works (EXW) – we also work with a variety of cargo types. Including a consolidation of goods mixed with other shipments (CONSOL). Always working to secure the best possible price for our customers. Consequently, pricing is calculated on a shipment-by-shipment basis. And as with all forms of freight, the larger your freight, 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, to name just a few.

It’s also worth remembering that not all goods are suitable for shipment via air freight. Lithium batteries, for example, are rarely accepted by airliners. Some chemicals and other dangerous goods may also present difficulties. So, if you’re at all uncertain about the eligibility of your cargo, speak to a Plexus Freight advisor before making your booking.

Having worked with freight for more than 25 years, at Plexus, we understand the intricacies of international freight movement. That’s why we offer a range of additional services to our clients. Including the management of essential freight paperwork, including: Master Airway Bill, House Bill, and Customs administration. You’ll just need to supply us with the Packing List of Goods and Value of Goods.

Air freight is the fastest form of international freight transportation. If you need your goods moved between the USA and the UK in 48 hours, there are simply no viable alternatives. But it offers a number of other benefits too. Operating to strict schedules, air freight is incredibly reliable. Cargo is extremely safe and well cared for, and almost any capacity of cargo can be taken, whether a crate of microchips and semiconductors, or a dozen pallets of mattresses and other furniture. And air freight can serve a range of destinations that would otherwise be inaccessible.

At Plexus Freight, we’re known for our exacting standards and exceptional service in European freight movement. With our air freight services, we take those standards to the global marketplace. Why not get in touch and find out how we could help your global freight movement?
