Expert coordination and advice—and no compromise on speed.

“Air freight is about speed and protecting the integrity of the cargo,” says Thomas Marano, Laufer’s National Director of Business Development, Air Freight. “Shippers can’t afford delays or jeopardize the goods being shipped.”

Speed is key to both air and maritime shippers. After all, by air or by sea, timing is always critical since ensuring that goods arrive on time is essential. But we understand that timing is only part of it. We work to make sure goods reach their destinations on time and in a manner that the recipient can handle. We work with customers to get an in-depth sense of their supply chain, and we help them structure—and in some cases restructure—it to better work with today’s air freight requirements. With tighter coordination and more stringent regulations, air freight calls for more questions. The answers we get from our customers help to define the exact type of shipping they need, as well as the ideal carrier.

In addition to asking very specific questions, we anticipate supply chain disruptions, such as market demands, weather concerns, trucking challenges, and much more. Going one step further, we assess the cargo to be shipped and its value, a range of shipping costs, appropriate routes, and air freight carriers with good records regarding damage and theft. Using all this data, we minimize shipping delays and meet delivery deadlines—exactly what air freight shippers need.
