Have the Airlines Gone Mad?

Have the Airlines Gone Mad?

The recession may be at an end, but airlines are still struggling to gain cargo tonnage. Some airlines have resorted to slashing air freight rates. For the right cargo, to the right destination, you can now get Freight, Fuel Surcharges and War Risk Surcharges for less than the airlines published Fuel Surcharges. We could feel sorry for them or we could take advantage of the cheap rates while they are available. We all know that once business picks up they will not waste any time increasing the rates again.

IATA has reported that cargo figures remain flat at the moment and this is why the air freight rates are unusually low. Shippers with cargo to send are in the driving seat.

Take advantage NOW. These rates will not last forever.
