Commercial Shipping via Air, Land, and Sea
Depending on the size and scope of your commercial shipment, we can ship via air one of three ways:
- By passenger plane. Freight being shipped via passenger plane is stored underneath the cabin of the aircraft in specially-fitted containers.
- By dedicated cargo plane. The largest cargo planes can carry about 26,000 cubic feet of freight.
- 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.
Express Commercial Shipping from the DC Area
- If you need to send an express air or ocean shipment, please contact us.

As a veteran international shipping and moving company, our staff is always up to date regarding international shipping regulations. We will advise you of any restrictions, requirements, fees, taxes, or other factors that may affect your freight.
