Air Freight

The lifeblood of Commodity Forwarders and the core business on which we were founded in 1974, CFI knows air freight. We have strategically located all of our fourteen offices less than five miles away from each of the gateway airports which we serve; Anchorage, Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, JFK, Boston, Honolulu and Miami. This proximity gives us an advantage to quickly recover cargo for transshipment, domestic on-forwarding by air or ground and consolidate and tender for export.

We have integrated our systems with many of the nearly four dozen airlines with whom we work in the United States and around the world. We book cargo and submit documentation electronically, ensuring speed and accuracy. Our proprietary technology tracks and monitors cargo in transit for delays, diversions or out of bounds movement.

Cargo ships by air for a reason. Whether for a deadline, product shelf life or it’s just “the only way,” CFI has designed our processes around the quick and proper handling of cargo moving by air anywhere in the world.
