Courier and time sensitive shipments
Acumen Air Cargo is fully aware of the requirement for time sensitive shipments. Due to the growing demand for time sensitive cargo, Acumen offer a varied range of courier services to our customers.
These services include:
24/48 hour delivery for door to door shipments within most major European cities and also various long haul destinations outside of Europe. These services are fully trackable and proof of delivery will be provided.
Economy courier services for smaller shipments that are not so time sensitive. These services are more cost effective for our customers as they are still a door to door service and still fully trackable, but at a much more reduced cost than the time sensitive services. Again, a POD will still be provided once the shipment has been delivered to the consignee. These services can also be more cost effective for our customers than sending smaller shipments on an airport to airport service.
