Fortune Global Adds Cargo Agency To A Portfolio Of Logistics Solutions
Cutting cost, expertise, industry knowledge, firm awareness of market trends and dynamics are some of the many reasons airliners consider before appointing Cargo Sales Agents to represent them in any location of interest.
A cargo agency is a business that provides services related to the transportation and shipment of goods. These services can include booking cargo space on ships, planes or trucks, arranging for customs clearance, handling packaging and labeling, and tracking shipments. Cargo agencies work with businesses and individuals to ensure that their goods are transported safely and efficiently to their destination. They may also provide logistics consulting services to help clients optimize their supply chains and reduce costs.
Be it cargo space marketing, cargo handling, operations, pick-up or Door-to-Door delivery, a sophisticated blend of experience, expertise, capacity, professionalism is required to effectively manage the intricacies and extreme sensitivity of air cargo.
In an industry characterized by diverse challenges – ranging from shortage of skilled manpower, non-compliance, low handling capacity, technological inadequacies cum incompetence, airlines run short of reliable options as the chances of finding agents with the requisite globally acceptable standards in general cargo sales, operations and excess baggage handling remains stagnant or at most, slim.
