AIR & SEA FREIGHT FORWARDING
Air & Sea Freight Forwarding
Our air freight forwarding services fuse the reliability of our exclusive partner, DHL Global Forwarding, and leading commercial airlines with the flexibility and cost-effectiveness of bespoke insurance packages, made possible by a long-term business relationship with Delvag Versicherungs-AG, the Lufthansa Group insurer.
Airtrans provides air freight import and export services for those companies who need to import shipments into Cyprus on an expedited timeline – from collection point to your final point of delivery, and vice versa. Our service includes a personalised service with all aspects of the transportation process, including customs clearance.
- Direct IATA shipments
- Flexible delivery options
- Expedited consignments
- No weight or volume restrictions
- Complete export documentation
- Cargo consolidation and deconsolidation
- Full shipment tracking
This is one of the cornerstones of our operation. We handle heavy-lifts, rolling cargo, full container loads (FCL), less-than-container loads (LCL), household goods (HHG) international road transport and delivery option flexibility.
Our operational scope, through DHL Global Forwarding, covers almost any seaport around the world and includes projects that call for the coordinated use of the entire expanse of our own resources and, at the same time, require us to tap into our vast network of industry connections in order to satisfy specific needs, such as hiring large amounts of warehouse space and obtaining special permissions.
Our organisational agility and fortitude have been field-tested on several occasions, most notably, through our contribution as a complete onshore and offshore logistics provider for Noble Energy International in its Oil & Gas drilling operations since 2011 – as well as in the 2006 Lebanon War, where our shore base services were deployed for a period of six months in support of the relief operation headed by the International Committee of the Red Cross.
Customs Clearing & Brokerage
We are the first Company in Cyprus that became an Authorised Economic Operator and was granted the certificate of AEOF.
We ensure that cargoes are cleared on time for our customers. Due to our experience as a complete transportation solutions provider, we are today, one of the most extensive customs clearance and brokerage operators in Cyprus.
Cargo is handled at our own privately managed warehouse at Larnaca Airport, or at Limassol Port. Our network of licensed customs brokers, import and export specialists, work to ensure that customer cargoes have no delay, while minimising costs at the same time.
