Air Charting: Case Study

Glaube logistics for air charting service

Air charting service: While air charters are a common alternative to commercial passenger flights, they’re also an alternative method for transporting cargo.

Aside from the cost, one of the most apparent differences between a standard air freight shipment and a cargo air charter shipment is that instead of renting space on a plane you’re renting the entire plane!

While it may be more cost-effective for cargo to fly commercially, chartering an entire plane becomes the best solution when time is money.

One of the most significant benefits of chartering an entire plane comes from the flexibility surrounding the logistical process.

Aircraft used for air charters are readily on a runway, surrounded by a team of cargo professionals who make it possible for charters to take flight in less than two hours, in most cases.

Glaube Logistics completed the air charter from Chengdu, China to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The cargo was 3,600 pieces of air purification units, weighing a total of 110 tons, and the plane used was a Boeing 747 8F.

The Challenge

Initially, the challenge for Glaube Logistics was to choose the best mode of transportation and aircraft to make sure that the cargo could be moved in a single lot due to the shipment’s tight deadline.

Leaving things to the last minute is never a good idea in logistics. Congestion at ports, problems with paperwork or customs are some of the minor complications that can affect us daily.

If we are also working with a tight deadline, this can involve a financial disaster for any logistical operation that has the potential for major profit.

The Strategy

We spoke with multiple agents and airlines before choosing Volga Dnepr. Our scope of work included Ex-works (EXW), we had to coordinate with airport authorities, shipper, origin agent, and the airline to make sure everything was well aligned before the arrival of the flight at the Port of loading to avoid any penalty/detention from the airline.
