Keep your options open Often, project freight can't be shipped using regularly scheduled conventional liner services. Urgently needed parts and equipment may require the expedited handling that only air freight can offer. When you need specialized, innovative transport options, our reliable ocean and air charter service—backed by our track record, extensive experience and excellent relationships with carriers—can provide solutions.
