We carry out customs clearance procedures of goods at Pulkovskaya, Sheremetyevskaya, Domodedovskaya customs. If the cargo requires additional handling (checking the quantity, quality, marking, photographing, etc.) a combined delivery scheme is used. Cargoes are delivered by air to one of the major EC airports (or directly to the Vilnius airport), then the goods are delivered to the warehouse in Vilnius for handling. After that they are shipped as part of a consolidated cargo (LCL) to the Russian Federation. All additional operations with the cargo are carried out at a multifunctional warehouse in Vilnius.


MAIN ADVANTAGES:

  • high speed;
  • the ability to deliver cargo to any point (using helicopters);
  • long range of non-stop flight.

MAIN DISADVANTAGES:

  • high cost of air freight;
  • limited dimensions and tonnage of transported goods;
  • restrictions on the range of goods.

INTERNATIONAL AIR FREIGHT

It is generally assumed that it is rational to deliver the following goods by air:

  • goods with a short delivery time, when it is necessary to quickly deliver even inexpensive goods. These can be spare parts / components / equipment for idle technological processes (line-stoppers), medical or other high-tech equipment;
  • expensive, valuable cargo due to the need to organize delivery on schedule, just-in-time, as well as to control the location of the cargo at all stages of transportation. These can be art objects, jewelry, watches, historical values, etc.;
  • perishable goods, foodstuffs, cut flowers;
  • small in volume and weight cargoes;
  • live animals;
  • cargo with “geographic” particularities of transportation, for which air freight is the only
  • mode of delivery;

However, these criteria are relative. However, as evidenced in practice, quite often clients choose air freight for sufficiently large consignments of cargo in case of economic expediency to “gain time” on delivery.


SHIPMENTS BY AIR

The following general statistics was developed in the world some time ago, which is still practically unaffected by the market:

  • The weight share of airfreights is about 1.3-1.5% of the total weight of all cargoes transported in the world by all modes of transport, but the cost share of airfreights is approximately 35% of the total cost of all cargoes.
  • Currently aircrafts of various airlines make regular flights to the largest airports in 180 countries.
  • There are substantial restrictions on the weight and dimensions of cargo in short-haul and medium-haul aircrafts. Modern long-haul aircraft, as a rule, have the ability to carry significant amounts of cargo. Air freight is mainly carried out over medium and long distances. Consolidation of cargo flows occurs between historically and economically established regional freight hubs (Frankfurt, Amsterdam, London, Dubai, Hong Kong, Shanghai, New York, San Francisco).
