Air cargo handlers impose huge price hikes
But Aerona Customs Clearing Agents could help you avoid costly penalties 

It’s all ‘kicking off’ in an escalating New Year’s dispute between freight forwarders and air cargo handlers that has seen swinging increases in charges. Many forwarders have even threatened to boycott airlines that employ handlers who are now levying huge charge increases. And the UK in particular is severely affected by these new price increases. 

Conversely, air cargo handlers have reacted by claiming that many forwarders have failed to address the matter of arranging timely collections of their shipments. One handling organisation has reacted by reducing free storage time from 24-hours to 18.  Failing to meet that deadline will see storage costs substantially increased. 

Handlers claim that over the past few months freight forwarders have consistently delayed the collection of their cargoes and have therefore caused severe backlogs at airline depots all around the world. 

On the other hand, forwarders say that the increased storage charges could cost them thousands of pounds as a result of delays that are very often beyond their control. 

It appears the dispute is now entering a deadlock! 

Freight forwarders claim that all too often the delay is caused by handling companies failing to move cargoes quickly enough due to their own congestion and handling inefficiencies. 

Handlers however, counter claim that forwarders don’t do anything to help themselves and that many of the delays are the direct result of a failure to organise prompt pick-ups. 

So is there a sensible solution to this costly conundrum?
