Exotic destinations are becoming more popular – and not only for tourists. The logistics industry is also expanding towards new horizons and discovering new and extraordinary destinations.
International transportation and logistics services provider AsstrA-Associated Traffic AG offers global air cargo shipping for a wide range of load types including perishables and dangerous goods. Transportation of cargo by air remains in great demand among AsstrA’s clients due to fast delivery times, broad geographical reach, and minimal fraud risks. Our company helps its customers enjoy all the advantages of air freight shipping by organizing the transportation of all cargo in strict conformity with agreed timeframes and shipment destinations. Thanks to close cooperation with international airlines, AsstrA offers a flexible pricing policy and maintains a high level of service quality.
The geographical reach of AsstrA’s airfreight services is unlimited. Apart from destinations on high-demand trade lanes, the corporate group offers air transport to more exotic countries. Experts from the AsstrA Italia Branch Office in Bergamo, Italy, know well how to organize extraordinary air deliveries.
“Air transportation to distant countries is our area of expertise. We help clients ship their goods to all Asian countries, Australia, the USA, and Africa from key Italian airports like Malpensa, Fiumicino, Marco Polo, Punta Raisi, Firenze, Torino, or Caselle. Since the beginning of 2017 we have already executed many shipments from Italy to India, Kenya, Nigeria, Argentina, and Azerbaijan,” says Alan Terzi, Freight Forwarder in the AsstrA Express Delivery and Groupage Cargo Division.
AsstrA’s airfreight offerings also comprise customs formalities support as well as comprehensive cargo tracking and professional groupage services. The range of transported load types is very wide. AsstrA also gives clients the possibility to load ADR cargoes.
“There is no limit to the types of cargo flown on exotic trade lanes. Everything from spare machine parts to flour and paper. Recently, we successfully transported spare machine parts to several African countries for a key client. AsstrA can serve any industry,” adds Alan Terzi.
For airfreight to Asian countries, Australia, the USA, and Africa, transportation is different than for other common destinations. As Mr. Terzi goes on to highlight: “Large volumes of paperwork required by the airlines are the norm for these trade lanes, so it is very important to work with the customer in order to prepare everything correctly.”
Lubov Zakharava, AsstrA Italy Country Manager, points out that “Airfreight to all Asian countries, Australia, the USA and Africa is one of our key offerings. We launched it last year and have already observed significant demand from clients. We would like to keep improving our service and increase our volumes. In the future, we would also like to obtain IATA authorization in Italy to complement our existing Russian IATA status. That way we will work directly with air companies and be able to offer customers an even better standard of service.”
