What is Express Shipping
Express shipping is of great importance for everyone who sends abroad. Because, whether it is a person or an institution, the sender of cargo abroad wants his shipment to be at the destination address as soon as possible, even at the “Speed ​​of Light”, as the phrase goes. That’s exactly what Express cargo provides to its users.

Express cargo is the method of transportation that delivers the cargo of a person or institution that wants to send cargo abroad to its destination with the fastest international cargo service. In fact, we wouldn’t be wrong if we say the fastest international cargo.

Although the country to which the cargo will be sent is important in express cargo, which reaches the delivery speed almost on the same day, it can be sent to almost any point in the world within 1-3 working days on average. With Express cargo, the international cargo package reaches the recipient intact and on time.

Express air cargo is a mode of transportation that promises speed and security to senders. Companies that want to meet the “fastest” cargo demand, which has increased especially in recent years, provide express air cargo service by expanding their fleets day by day and increasing the number of destinations reached, ensuring that they can be reached literally anywhere in the world.

This service is also a service provided like door-to-door cargo. In order to receive your cargo that you want to be delivered at jet speed, you can call the company that will send the cargo, leave a note for your package to be received, and deliver the shipment to the incoming courier. For example, even if your package, which you have sent to Germany by air cargo, is naturally sent to the customs, after the completion of these procedures, it is taken from the customs and delivered to the destination address and door-to-door cargo service is thus obtained. Here, the comfort of both the sender and the receiver is reduced, and time loss is prevented during the delivery/receiving phase of the package, thus providing a perfect service. In the opposite case, the sender would go to the cargo company that will carry out the transport to deliver his cargo, and the recipient at the destination address would probably have to get up from the beginning of his work and enter the cargo branch in order to receive a package that will be brought to his door.

A person or institution that will send express cargo should know that there are weight and size restrictions in this service. Cargoes between 0.5 kg and 30 kg and shipments not larger than 180 cm, 240 cm and 270 cm, depending on the size of the aircraft operated by the operator, can be transported by express service.

Are Air Cargo and Express the same service?
When you think of express, air cargo immediately comes to mind. The clearest definition to explain what air cargo is; It is the transportation of the products or goods to be sent abroad by airplanes.

The most important and only difference between air cargo and express shipping is that express cargo is faster and saves the sender a significant amount of time. Apart from this, there is no distinction, advantage or disadvantage.

The area where express cargo and thus fast delivery gains the most importance is international shipments. Those who send documents or commercial products to any country in the world and want it to reach their destination as quickly as possible, choose the alternative way of using the ‘Yurtliye Express Cargo’ alternative. With overseas express cargo, it is possible to send easily from Turkey to any country or from another country to Turkey, and the shipments can be in the hands of the recipient in a short time. For this, there is nothing else you need to do other than applying to companies that perform international Express cargo delivery and delivering your package. In this way, deliveries are made within 1 business day to European countries, which are geographically close to Turkey and where flight flights are quite intense, and within 3 business days to Far East and African countries. A process that would take longer with standard service is thus shortened as much as possible.

Let’s take a look at how many days delivery can be made to Germany, the USA, China and Australia with the express service we have described so far.

Germany: 1 working day on average

USA: 2 business days on average

China: 2 business days on average

Australia: 3 working days on average.

At this point, it should be noted that the distance of the country to which the international cargo will be sent and the flight frequency affect the delivery time.

How are Express Cargo prices determined?
In Express service, shipping costs are slightly higher than other international shipping methods.

Express shipments are basically evaluated as under 30 kg and over 30 kg, and the price is determined by looking at it. The weight limit for exits to be made by issuing a single bill of lading is 300 kilos.

Express shipping fees are the most important issue in international shipments. Cargo fees vary according to the distance of the country to which the package is sent, as well as the frequency of flights to that country, but first of all, the weight of the shipment. The heaviest cargo will have the highest express shipping rates, while light shipments will have lower rates.

Of course, with this treatment, only information about the arrival date of the cargo is not obtained. If there is any delay in the delivery of the cargo, it becomes possible to find out the reasons for this delay, find a solution and prevent the delay. For example, the delay experienced due to a problem at the customs can be learned by tracking and the problem can be eliminated.

Express cargo is not the only person or institution that sends the tracking process. The recipient, to whom the cargo tracking number is sent, can also follow the shipment to find out when the package he expects will be in his hands. For example, if the buyer wants the part needed for a production, he/she can learn the average time of arrival of the part he/she expects by online express cargo tracking and can create his/her business plan according to this information. In the event of a delay, he can reach the sender of the cargo and find out the reason for the delay, and if he has things to do to eliminate the delay, he can do these. In the light of this information, the buyer, who learns that the shipment has arrived in the country where the shipment is located, can choose to receive the package himself, without waiting for the door-to-door delivery.
