Air Freight

Air freight has played a huge role in the global expansion of the shipping industry. We understand that clients want results fast. With our many years of experience in the cargo trade, Kestrel can offer the best logistical solution possible.

Operating out of our dedicated Heathrow Airport office, with the help of skilled and passionate personnel, we can deliver cargo of almost any size and value. At Kestrel, our service is oriented around a nuanced understanding of customer needs. As such, we offer quotes via telephone and email, as well as same day collection for any bookings that are taken before 10:00 AM.

With a network of over 100 worldwide airports and highly competitive rates, we are proud of our reputation as a leader in the field, and always strive to prove through our service that this reputation is deserved.

Traditionally, container shipping via sea has played an important part when transporting goods to the Caribbean Islands. However, with transit times ranging from weeks from Europe or South America to more than 6 weeks from Asia, this can sometimes prove problematic. In the fast paced society we live in today it is often imperative that goods can arrive at a much quicker time whilst still keeping costs low.

Kestrel Liner Agencies have the perfect solution. We have a unique Air/Sea service; a hybrid logistics solution offering the speed of air and the economy of sea freight. With our dedicated 100,000 sq. ft. customs bonded warehouse in Miami, we can offer an air and sea freight option which can drastically reduce transit times to days. This is great news if you have a product that needs to be on the shelves to keep up with buyers demand.
