Air freight
Reliable access to space
The air freight market has become more competitive than ever. Flexport works with top carriers on direct contracts, and has a vast partner network to ensure we’re able to secure space for our clients when they need it.
Industry experts
Our air freight team at Flexport boasts decades of experience on both the carrier and freight forwarding sides of industry. We work closely with clients to understand their business, and to guide them toward routes and strategies to save them time and money.
Diversified procurement strategy
We work with clients shipping air freight regularly, as well as those who reserve air shipments for urgent needs. Our team stays connected to the market, and offers express and deferred premium services to ensure you're presented with the best options to get your cargo to destination.

Efficiency through technology

The traditional air freight model is to roughly guess cargo density, assume a high amount of waste, and pass along the inflated costs to clients. At Flexport, we’re upending that practice, by using our structured booking data to better optimize consolidations, reduce waste, and keep rates affordable.

Efficiency through technology

Trustworthy partner during emergencies

New products, demand spikes, or supplier mishaps can all lead to an urgent air shipment. When that time comes, having your dedicated team at Flexport on your side will make all the difference. Fast quote turnaround times, consultative route planning, confirmation of uplift, and granular last-mile visibility give you the assurance you need that your goods will arrive on time.
