Airfreight can reduce the total logistics cost for urgent or time-critical logistical challenges. By combining the speed of air with the cost savings of other modes, backed by smooth and efficient customs and administrative procedures, customers can enjoy the best of both worlds; reducing inventory and improving their own service offer with faster response times at affordable cost.
Damco offers airfreight services through its global network of offices. Most of our volume is routed through strategic partners with whom we have deep and longstanding relationships. This enables us to secure capacity, control costs and attain high service levels.
In-house carrier through hub and gateway network
On selected high volume trade lanes, Damco operates a hub and gateway network, using our own controlled capacity through our in-house carrier. By careful selection of airports, and by using our own staff, we can ensure services that are frequent, cost-effective and highly reliable.
Security is of course our number one priority in airfreight, at our own hubs and at all the other facilities we use. All our hub/gateway warehouses are TAPA ‘A’ and/or C-TPAT certified. We make extensive use of CCTV, and where possible we build our own units supported by photographic evidence of seals and ULD numbers. Pallets are check weighed at origin and destination. Our robust and comprehensive information systems also ensure that security authorities are not confronted with unexpected or non-compliant consignments.
