A company is planning to move any cargo from one place to the other. Since, it has limited time, the only possible process to move the cargo is through air freight. What it would needs is to find a service provider who is experienced in such jobs. If a search is made, names of hundreds of such service providers will come up. However, it is necessary to choose from them the most reliable service provider with whom your cargo will be safe and reach its destination by the scheduled time as committed by the service provider during the appointment. Companies like Cargo Force are examples of such service providers whose expertise lies in cargo moving through different forms of transport. Not only are these companies experienced to handle such jobs, they also have the right logistical support with proper efficiency level to undertake such projects.
The service provider will charge the client for its service. There will be a number of different charges right from Customs Duty to Fuel Surcharge. Among the Airline Surcharges that are needed to be paid are Fuel Surcharges (FSC) and War Risk Surcharge (WRS). FSC is the fee that is added to compensate for higher fuel costs. WRS is the surcharge for transportation security expenses that is required after September 11, 2001 attack.
All these surcharges are added along with the ancillary rates to the main bill which the client finally has to pay. It always a good idea to ensure that you and your service provider are on the same page, prior to signing on a provider when it comes to understanding the costs involved and what needs to be paid extra if unforeseen situation arises. Bigger companies like Cargo Force will give away all the necessary information regarding its charges in the beginning, so that the client may not think that there are hidden costs.
The Air Surcharges in different countries as well as different air freight carrier companies differ. Therefore the final rate also differs. For example, Air Algerie charges 0.45 as FSC which is the FSC and WRS combined. Air Canada charges 0.68 as FSC and 0.09 as WRS. Air France charges 0.82 for long haul, 0.66 for mid haul and 0.41 for short haul as FSC. For WRS it charges 5 minutes or 0.09. Air Cargo Germany charges 0.95 as FSC and 0.09 as WRS. DHL-Heavyweight 0.69 in Europe and 0.85 in rest of the world as FSC while 0.1 for WRS for both destinations.
