Air Freight

Temperature Controlled Air Freight

PDQ Specialist Courier Services provide a range of reliable transport options for the medical, pharmaceutical and hazardous industries. This includes our stellar range of highly secure and consistently efficient temperature-controlled air freight services. We’ve developed an approach that ensures all of our air freight shipping consignments are delivered directly to their intended destination by the safest means possible.

Furthermore, this all takes place with the most delicate temperature controlled conditions.  Our widespread network of delivery allows us to offer rapid temperature controlled shipping, with items collected and dispatched overseas on the same day. Not only do we guarantee the most reliable temperature controlled shipping services, we also promise that each of your clients receive their items in the fastest possible time.

PDQ Specialist Courier Services offer a fully transparent service that takes responsibility for the transport of your air freight shipment for the duration of its transit. From the moment we collect your item/s from your premises, we’ll begin a temperature-controlled air freight that takes the direct route to the nearest airport for your destination. As part of our air freight shipping service, we also ensure that your consignment passes through customs and reaches its destination on the exact date promised.

Since our inception, we’ve sought to provide industry-leading standards in the field of temperature-controlled transports, providing our clients with the utmost peace of mind and allowing you to focus on the running of your business.  To evidence this, we offer a PDQ ‘Track & Trace’ service, where our clients can monitor exact details of their delivery at every stage of the air freight shipping process. This is all done through electronic signatures which are uploaded in real-time, to-the-minute, so you’ll know as soon as the successful delivery is completed.

We take the reliability of your transport extremely seriously, with each of our fleet of vans fitted with a range of safety and security measures, as well as being regularly maintained to ensure they are in peak condition. Each of our drivers is also trained in the handling of medical, pharmaceutical and hazardous transports, ensuring the utmost care for your temperature-controlled air freight transport. Additionally, our Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) status allows us to provide a smooth passage for your shipment through the complex customs arrangements in many destinations, guaranteeing that your transit arrives safely, securely and punctually.

Our aforementioned drivers possess the Level 4 training to enable them to reliably deliver consignments directly to the designated plane for the air freight portion of their journey. This offers you the benefit of knowing that your items are not being held in clearance warehouses waiting to be loaded. We provide a fully comprehensive temperature-controlled shipping process, with air freight cargo overseen through to its designated destination, so once your consignment reaches the other end of its flight, we’ll ensure to hand over the documentation to the nominated agents or brokers to bring about final clearance and delivery. We understand just how critical this is for temperature-critical items, so we go to great lengths to ensure the cold chain is never broken.
