In the world of trucking, the term ‘hotshot’ is used to denote time-sensitive delivery service. Sometimes, trucks will carry multiple freight items for several different clients. This shared freight service can help minimise costs, but it almost never results in the timeliest deliveries. Because the truck has several delivery destinations, no one client has priority. Therein lies the appeal of hotshot trucking, which usually utilises a dedicated ute or truck to get loads where they need to be as quickly as possible.
Hotshots or direct drives are used commonly throughout the logistics industry to get loads to their destination urgently. Say you schedule a direct drive to Broome. The trucking company you work with will essentially drive your load directly to the destination, with minimal stops, delays or distractions. Travelling on the ground, at least, there is no faster way to get your goods to where they need to go.
Complete Aviation Freight: Affordable Air Hotshot freight Services
At Complete Aviation Freight, we are proud to take the hotshot term that is so popular in road transport and apply it to air freight. We offer direct freight to Port Hedland, Karratha, Broome and anywhere else in Western Australia you need to reach. So long as the final destination for your freight has an airstrip, we can get it there.
How does our Air Hotshot or Direct Freight Service Work? And perhaps more importantly, how is it different from a full aircraft charter?
Essentially, our direct freight service offers the speed of air freight without the usual costs associated with a private aircraft charter. Unlike with hotshot trucking, our air freight charters are shared instead of being dedicated or private. However, thanks to the speed of air travel and the fact that Complete Aviation Freight is willing to land on any airstrip in Western Australia, we can offer a service that is faster than hotshot drives and cheaper than dedicated air charters. Simply put, you get the best of both worlds.
Get Anything Shipped on a Direct Freight to Karratha, Port Hedland or Anywhere in Australia
Okay, so you can book a Complete Aviation Freight service and get your goods transported, via air, to their end destination. The big question is, what can you ship with this service?
Our goal with our direct freights to Karratha, Port Hedland, Broome and other parts of Western Australia was to provide a shipping solution for any load. With that goal in mind, we are happy to accept the types of shipments that charters usually deny, include large, long, heavy or unwieldy loads. From turbine engines to helicopter rotor blades, drilling equipment to fishing gear, perishables to live animals, we can transport anything. Our air freight services are even open to dangerous goods and materials.
A hotshot trucking service will get your goods where they need to go faster, but it will still always be subject to the limitations of road travel. By taking to the skies, you get faster delivery times with less opportunity for delay.
