How It Works
Call us and tell us what size package you need to ship, where it’s heading, and when it needs to arrive.
We will confirm you are a “Known Shipper.” This is your security clearance with the TSA. Click Here for more info.
We find the best route (taking weather and other factors into consideration) and provide you with a quote.
Our local route operator will pick up your package and deliver it to the airport where it will be signed over to an airline.
Our delivery team will pick up the package when the flight lands. We will call you to let you know the package is on the way.
We will drop off the package with the intended recipient and provide a signature for proof of delivery.
What Is Freight Forwarding?
Freight forwarding means organizing and coordinating shipments from one location to another using one or more carriers. A freight forwarder differs from a shipping company or courier service in that we can utilize many different carriers for a single delivery. We are not limited to our own fleet, but rather develop relationships with carriers worldwide to make deliveries as efficient as possible. For example, we may hire a courier to pick up a package and have it dropped off at an airline for flight (or a trucking service for land transport), and then have a different delivery service deliver the package from the airport (or freight facility) to your office. That’s three different carriers (departing city courier, airline/trucking company, and destination city courier). But you only make one call – to Advanced Express. We take care of the rest.
I only have a tiny parcel to ship.
Is that really “freight”?
Yes, it’s an outdated term. Freight forwarders can handle parcels of any size. You can ship an envelope or a truckload of products. It’s all “freight.”
