International Air Shipping
There are three ways to ship via air.
- By passenger plane. Yes, some freight travels with people. These items are stored underneath the cabin of the plane in special containers made to fit the cargo area.
- By dedicated cargo plane. The largest cargo planes can carry about 26,000 cubic feet of freight.
- By super transporter. Really, REALLY large items have to be moved by really big planes. In super transporters, cargo is stored above the cockpit and throughout the entire length of the plane.
When you ship your items with Platinum, you can rest assured that they will be transported with the utmost safety and efficiency.
Air Freight Shipping Rates
Air freight rates vary based on the weight of the items being shipped, their destination, and other factors.

- Pack. Use strong boxes or cartons and make sure fragile items are well-wrapped. Platinum can pack your items for you if you wish!
- Label boxes clearly.
- Weigh the boxes. Again, we can do this for you at our facility.
- Stack boxes on a pallet, if necessary. Depending on how many boxes or packages you are shipping, you may need to put them on pallets. Don’t worry, we can help with that!
