HOW TO SAVE TIME & MONEY WHEN SHIPPING AIRCRAFT SEATS

WHAT IS THE DEMAND FOR SHIPPING AIRCRAFT SEATS?

When new and used aircraft seats are sold or repaired, they inevitably need to be shipped for installation. At any given time there are thousands of aircraft seats available for sale on eBay, Craigslist and other sales listing and eCommerce sites. Aircraft seats are too large and heavy to be shipped as parcels. Freight shipping is the solution. FreightCenter has helped many aircraft seat buyers, sellers, owners and repair facilities save time and money shipping aircraft seats.

Follow these tips to learn how.

ARE THERE DIFFERENT TYPES OF FREIGHT SHIPPING TO CHOOSE FROM FOR AIRCRAFT SEATS?

The two major types of freight shipping are LTL (less-than-truckload) and FTL (full truckload). Unless you are shipping a truckload full of aircraft seats, you'll save a considerable amount of money by using LTL shipping. With LTL shipping, loads from a number of shippers are consolidated into one truck. This saves all of the shippers money.

HOW DO YOU PREPARE AIRCRAFT SEATS FOR LTL SHIPPING?

Every piece of freight is moved by forklift at least six times, when it is ...:

  1. ... picked up to be taken to the originating freight terminal
  2. ... unloaded at the originating freight terminal
  3. ... loaded onto the LTL freight trailer on which it will stay for the long part of the haul
  4. ... unloaded at the destination freight terminal
  5. ... loaded onto a truck for delivery
  6. ... unloaded at the final destination

Every time freight is moved there is potential that it can be damaged. 

Aircraft seats represent a significant investment that needs to be protected. The best protection for your aircraft seats is crating. Within a well-crafted crate, the seats you are shipping won't be damaged by the incidental bumps that can occur between pickup and delivery. Crating also protects cargo from shifting freight while in transit. If you need someone to construct a custom crate for you, FreightCenter's shipping experts can point you in the right direction.
