Air Menzies International is now offering all-inclusive online express import rates and bookings in the U.S. from global destinations.
Rates include collection at origin, customs clearance and delivery in the U.S., but exclude duties and taxes.
The trade-only air freight and express wholesaler said it had been encouraged to start the Click2ship Imports service after its exports variation proved highly successful after its launch 12 months ago.
The online export service now accounts for 3 percent of the company’s U.S. income, “but we expect the addition of imports to take it to more than 10 percent within the next year,” said Peter Weir, AMI’s senior vice president, U.S. “We have been encouraging customers with minimums to try it, as it offers better rates than airport-to-airport services, but for a full door-to-door service with online track and trace. We can be very competitive up to 75 kilograms or 170 pounds, and we’re able to provide spot rates for larger shipments.”
