For businesses researching the realm of large air freight shipments, the landscape can be both overwhelming and costly. Whether you are dealing with limited aircraft options or grappling with uncompetitive pricing from big-name freight companies, the challenges are numerous. The good news? You have two main choices: Traditional Freight Companies and Brokers. This article aims to offer a balanced view of both, highlighting why a broker, specifically Monarc Global, might be your ideal partner.
Traditional freight companies often have an established network and are known for the efficient handling of bulky international shipments. However, their reach is usually limited to specific types of aircraft, making it challenging to meet specialized needs. Additionally, the size of multinational companies may limit your ability to negotiate more favorable rates.
Brokers like Monarc Global offer a range of unique selling propositions that set them apart:
Brokers bring versatility and understand the importance of presenting a solution tailored to your cargo, often with multiple pricing options to consider. This is in stark contrast to fitting your shipment into the sometimes rigid guidelines, space, and schedule of the traditional companies. These capabilities can help navigate many uncertainties faced by first-time or infrequent shippers.
Although none of us would wish for a pandemic in order to prove our mettle – it did just that for Monarc Global.
You could deliberate that ‘people aren’t freight’, or alternatively their loved ones would assert that they are ‘the most important freight of all’. Regardless, when travelers were stranded in India, with government and commercial services either not viable or canceled, we worked tirelessly to find a solution to bring those people home.
With uncertainty about an end in sight to the pandemic, Australia was in desperate need of Rapid Antigen Tests for Australians to prove they could be out and about. For a country of 25 million people, one importer got in touch with us to help them import 25 million RAT’s to Australia during a period when getting across borders was challenging.
