Why has my shipping rate increased?

There are many reasons why your rate may have increased/decreased since the last time you shipped with us.

The following are always changing and affecting rates:

  • Carrier fees
  • Shipping Lanes (route the aircraft must follow when shipping)
  • Aircraft Volume fees (price the carrier charges based on how full the aircraft is at the time of shipment)

In addition, it is customary in the shipping industry for carriers to raise their rates annually. When a carrier, such as DHL, raises their rates, we also must raise our shipping costs to remain profitable.
