Book Onboard Couriers to Hand Carry Your Most Critical Shipments
Provide peace of mind with hand delivery service from AIT
Don't let tight connections or documentation issues stand in the way of on-time delivery for your most crucial cargo.
When even next flight out services aren't hands-on enough, consider hand delivery service via an onboard courier (called "hand carry," for short).
Read on to learn more about hand delivery service and find out if hand carry via an onboard courier is the right fit for your needs.
Rather than the 24- to 72-hour wait time of normal cargo, hand delivery shipments are carried on the plane in the passenger cabin. Without delay, the onboard courier boards and deplanes the aircraft with hands on your shipment the entire time.
After your onboard courier arrives at the destination airport, a dedicated vehicle immediately picks up your shipment and delivers it to its destination.
Clear customs fasterWith hand delivery services via an onboard courier, your shipment will clear customs soon after arriving at the destination airport. By cutting out the more time-consuming steps of larger shipments, hand carry services expedite delivery of critical and time-sensitive products.
Secure chain of custodyUsing an onboard courier to transport products also helps maintain a constant, in-transit chain of custody throughout the lifecycle of a shipment, while adding a personal touch. In line-down emergencies and other high stakes, urgent situations, hand delivery service provides a dependable way to ensure your critical items arrive as soon as possible.
