Commercial Shipping via Air, Land, and Sea

Air Shipping

Depending on the size and scope of your commercial shipment, we can ship via air one of three ways:

  1. By passenger plane. Freight being shipped via passenger plane is stored underneath the cabin of the aircraft in specially-fitted containers.
  2. By dedicated cargo plane. The largest cargo planes can carry about 26,000 cubic feet of freight.
  3. By super transporter.  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.

Commercial Air Freight Shipping Rates

  • Air freight rates vary based on the weight of the items being shipped, their destination, and other factors. Please contact us for an air shipping quote.

Commercial Ground Shipping

We can broker national ground shipping for your company. We will arrange for agents to perform both the origin and destination services and take care of the transportation. All you need to do is give us the particulars of your shipment, and for a small fee we will take care of all the logistics for you! This eliminates the hassles of having to deal with multiple companies.

Commercial Ocean Shipping

For getting commercial shipments overseas, shipping via ocean is often the most practical choice.

  • Typically, shipping abroad via ocean will cost less than shipping via plane. In some cases that may not be true, but most of the time you will save money overall when you use an ocean container rather than air freight.
  • Ocean containers come in large sizes and therefore can hold more cargo in fewer shipments.

“Platinum takes professional to a whole new level!”

Steve T.

“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.”
