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.

“Platinum takes professional to a whole new level!”
“Platinum moving made an extraordinary showing of moving me from DC to Mexico City, Mexico. I was somewhat focused as this was the primary worldwide move that I needed to orchestrate all alone as I had been fortunate to have the USG move me all my past times. I had a tight window, a couple of weeks in which to arrange the move. Platinum was extraordinary in working with me to plan the review rapidly and the resulting pack-out. The group they had for me was obliging, proficient, and fast. There was somewhat of a postponement in the entry of the holder from Baltimore, MD because of a mishap and activity that day yet that was minor considering everything by and large. They additionally combined me with an incredible organization in Mexico, called Balderas. There were just a couple of days postponement at the traditions/port in Veracruz before my stuff landed at my new able in Mexico City. Generally, thanks such a great amount to Platinum and Balderas for making the move easily on their parts.”
