Is There A Website For Air Cargo Price Comparison?

Hello all,

I have to send some stuff from Hamburg to the Washington D.C. area and I would prefer to send it via air cargo.

Is there some website where you can compare cargo fares, just like Expedia or Opodo for passanger fares?

It would be very annoying when I have to call each airline and each forwarding company separately to ask for their fares.

Thanks in advance!

Patrick

Sabena 332,

Unfortunately in this post 9/11 world, you can not just take your stuff to
an airline and ship it. Your best bet would be to call one of your local
freight forwarders for a quote. In Germany , Schenker, Panalpina among
others might be able to help.

Sabena 332,

I'd suggest you call around, Schenker & Panalpina and other major forwarders may take your business but i'd give the smaller forwarders a call they may appreciate your business a little more. The major forwarders maybe to focused on their big accounts that ship 100's of tons per year.

Just a sugesstion, i'd be interested to hear how you get on.

Of course it depends on the size. For smaller stuff you might deal with UPS and FedEx. If your stuff is a bit bigger, just call Antonov Airlines and charter the An-225.  Smile


Exceptions confirm the rule.

Yeah, I think I will call some freight forwarding companies on Monday.
