Our company also specializes in hazardous, bulky, perishable goods. Once we were ordered to transport from China, the cargo is dishes. This cargo is classified as fragile and the packaging must meet all IATA requirements + additionally protect the cargo from damage.
After repackaging, the volume increased, and accordingly the billed weight. But we suggested using a little-known scheme in the field of air transportation - a tariff according to the VOLUME SHARE formula. Unfortunately for customers, not every experienced logistician knows about this opportunity.
The client requested delivery from Shenzhen or nearby airports. But the analysis showed that fares for local flights are an order of magnitude more expensive than those from other airports in China.
We offered a flight from Beijing, taking into account the delivery of cargo to the airport. Not only did they meet the deadlines stated by the client, but they were able to save about 12% of the delivery cost!
The client requested export from Russia to Japan with the provision of customs clearance services and delivery to the recipient. The cargo was in Russia on the terms of temporary import. But the Carnet expired and the time was limited. When the cargo has already arrived at the airport departures, a broker in Japan said that the shipment could not be shipped because customs did not will skip.
Our experts argued that there is no reason to ban customs clearance. Having weighed all the risk factors, the customer gave the go-ahead for transportation.
During the year we cooperate with a company that orders approximately 2-3 transportations per month at Pulkovo. Due to the epidemic, transportation to Pulkovo was stopped. We offered a transit route through Moscow with further registration of VTT to St. Petersburg. So Thus, we have carried out 3 shipments, despite the additional costs.
The day before the next cargo is picked up, trusted people report that flights to Pulkovo are resumed with a restriction once a week. But 100% guarantee that the flight come true, do not give. After explaining everything in detail to the client, we decided to take a risk and send the goods direct flight to Pulkovo.
