As businesses continue to expand globally, the need for time-sensitive deliveries becomes more critical. Time-sensitive deliveries are the transportation of goods or cargo that require a faster delivery than standard shipping methods. Time is of the essence in these deliveries and every second counts. In such situations, the best option for time-sensitive cargo is often a hand carry service, such as the OBC – ON BOARD COURIER product offered by Airmacs Aviation, a charter specialist in air cargo.
Unlike standard shipping methods, on board courier services offer a faster and more secure delivery option. On board couriers (OBCs) are specialised personnel who accompany the cargo during transportation, ensuring its safety and timely delivery. They are carefully vetted, highly trained and very experienced in handling various types of goods, including time-sensitive materials. And as they accompany the goods from the collection address, right up to the customer’s door – there’s little or no chance of the goods being lost or misplaced. An On Board Courier will carry your goods exclusively, and they will be on their person throughout the entire process.
Our couriers are strategically located around the world. They are readily available to leave their hubs at a moment’s notice, with all the necessary travel documents in place. We can have a courier on route to collect your goods by hand in shortly after receiving your initial request, and they may well be in the air and on route to you within hours.
The difference between shipping time and delivery time is crucial in time-sensitive deliveries. Shipping time is the duration that it takes for a shipment to leave the point of origin and arrive at the destination. Delivery time, on the other hand, refers to the time it takes for the shipment to be delivered to the recipient. In time-sensitive deliveries, delivery time is of utmost importance. It can be the difference between a successful and a failed delivery. With production delays resulting in penalties or consequential losses, the difference between a conventional courier service and a personal, bespoke hand carry solution is incomparable. Whilst an OBC service will generally cost more due, that cost is often offset and minimal compared against the repercussions and fall-out of not having the goods where they need to be, on time.
A time-sensitive issue refers to any situation where time is of the essence. This could be an emergency where medical supplies need to be delivered urgently, or where a company needs to deliver important documents or materials within a tight deadline. In such situations, every second counts, and delays can have severe consequences.
Time-sensitive packages can include airplane components or airplane parts for grounded aircraft, medical supplies, machinery spares for the production line stoppages in sectors such as the Automotive and Aerospace industries, and sensitive documents which cannot fall into the wrong hands or that need to be accompanied throughout their transit.
