Airport freight services are a way to ship your freight using different air carriers.
Usually, you will need to contact a local carrier to ship your products via air. Local carriers will pick up your shipment and tender the shipment to the airport.
An airplane will then transport your shipment to its destination. At the destination, the carrier will arrange the pickup and delivery of your shipment.
Airfreight carriers are different from the local carrier that you will contact for your shipment. The local carrier will arrange with air freight carriers to determine how your products will be shipped.
Airfreight shipping has several advantages that you should consider when choosing how to ship your products.
At the LAX Airport, there are general notes on how some companies handle air freight.
Another trucking agent usually picks up international freight on behalf of a mutual customer. However, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) must first approve the mutual customer. After approval, the carrier will tender the shipment to an airline.
The carrier will then pick up the shipment under their own account and take it to its domestic destination. In addition, some companies that handle freight services will recover and tender international shipments on behalf of the customer.
When it comes to air freight services at LAX, most companies do not offer any private services or add-ons such as customs clearances. Trucking agents also do not cover LAX airport parking prices if you need to visit LAX.
Using air freight services is a great option for shipping your products. Many local carriers will help you ship your products through LAX using the services explained above.
