Air freight

The shortest (and highest) distance between two points

Aiming high? The quickest way to transport your goods is by air freight. alpha trans flies to all the major air hubs in the world.

Take advantage of our individualised service. Set the pace yourself. Air freight offers outstanding flexibility when you need your transport arrangements to fit with tight schedules. We will be happy to advise you on the following services:

  • Own consolidated transports (import and export)
  • Part and full charter
  • Door-to-door Service worldwide
  • Complete, L/C-compliant document creation
  • Transport insurance, procurement of certificates
  • Import and export customs clearance (ATLAS, AES, NCTS)
  • As a “regulated agent” we meet all safety requirements of the German Federal Aviation Authority


Inspected by the German Aviation Authority (Luftfahrtbundesamt)

In Germany, the Federal Aviation Authority (Luftfahrtbundesamt, or LBA) is responsible for all security issues relating to aviation. Companies that comply with the LBA’s specific security requirements are designated “regulated agents.” In addition to specific monitoring, this also requires consignors to carry out internal quality controls at their premises.

We are a regulated agent and therefore meet all German Aviation Authority (LBA) security requirements.

Import protective equipment

The demand for masks and protective clothing remains still increasing.
Meanwhile we have brought more than 50 million protective items to Germany by air or sea freight.
These include so-called community masks, but also urgently needed medical protective masks and nitrile gloves.
We support you with the contribution to containing the coronavirus and therefore, protecting people.
However, it is a long journey with lots of logistical challenges before the protective equipment reaches its destination.

  • Medical masks are still in demand worldwide – a secure supply chain protects your goods against theft
  • Due to high demand, there are always capacity bottlenecks and price fluctuations.
  • We compensate for capacity bottlenecks through long-term partnerships with various airlines by means of ‘space agreements’ and
    thus ensure your reliable and schedulable supply chain.
  • Strict safety precautions and medical requirements make it more difficult to handle the deliveries.
    We support you with being able to react flexibly and at short notice with the right local partners. So that you remain able to deliver
  • We advise you on the selection of the right mode of transport, depending on the delivery date. You can use our service by rail, air or sea freight
  • Do you need a holistic ‘door-to-door’ solution that complies with all required standards? Then, too, talk to us and you will receive a tailor-made offer.
