How can We help
Economical routing for on-time, safe, affordable delivery
When you are looking for the reassurance of airfreight services, but do not want to pay a speed premium, consider the advantages of TVS SCS’s Consolidated Airfreight Forwarding Services.
Airfreight is one of the fastest methods of moving goods across the globe. Along with the benefit of speed, airfreight also offers more predictability and reliability for extremely tight timelines and requirements. For customers with these needs, the benefits of shipping with airfreight – and the flow-on effects generated from this – are greater than the premium price tag.
Airfreight offers more reliable arrival and departure times, resulting in a tighter level of predictability to help plan your supply chain. Additionally, the more secure nature of airfreight means there is less packaging – and therefore unpacking – required than when shipping with ocean freight. With regular fight schedules and fewer requirements surrounding the packing and unpacking of goods, shipping with airfreight also reduces warehousing and storage costs.

Where ocean freight is transported in different types of containers, airfreight is moved using unit load devices (ULD). ULDs range from smaller containers or boxes to pallets that are loaded onto the aircraft for transportation.
We have 45 dedicated freight forwarding offices in 15 countries, and work with trusted and reliable agents across the world to deliver global freight forwarding capabilities.
To offer our customers competitive pricing and efficient freight forwarding, we group several smaller consignments (deliveries), sometimes from multiple different customers, into a larger consignment. Not only does it create efficiency in space utilisation, it gives us the ability to leverage much better pricing from the carriers on behalf of our customers.
