For urgent or time-critical shipments, we provide express and expedited airfreight services both domestically and internationally. These services prioritize the fastest transit times.

ALG offers On Board Courier Services as well for the most time sensitive and secure shipments.
In cases where shippers have large volumes of cargo or specific transportation requirements, freight forwarders can arrange full charter or part charter services.
Full charter services provide shippers with the exclusive use of an entire aircraft, whether it’s a cargo plane or a passenger aircraft converted for cargo purposes. This ensures that the entire capacity of the aircraft is dedicated to the specific freight shipment, allowing for maximum control and security of the goods being transported.
Part-charter involves sharing the aircraft with other shippers. These services offer flexibility and customized solutions for high-volume or specialized cargo. Freight charters offer a high degree of flexibility and customization. Shippers can choose the most suitable aircraft type, departure time, and routing options based on their specific requirements. Charter services are particularly beneficial for urgent or time-sensitive shipments, oversized cargo, or when there is a need for specialized handling or equipment.
Dedicated charters are often utilized for time-sensitive shipments that require rapid delivery. Whether it’s an emergency situation, AOG (Aircraft on Ground) scenario, critical spare parts, or perishable goods, charter services ensure expedited transportation with direct flights and minimal transit time.
Oversized, heavy, or out-of-gauge cargo that cannot be accommodated by standard cargo aircraft or regular flights often requires a dedicated plane. Chartering an aircraft allows for the transportation of large machinery, equipment, vehicles, or other bulky items that require specialized loading and secure fastening. Our charter services offer specialized handling and security measures tailored to the specific cargo being transported. This includes ensuring appropriate packaging, securing cargo during loading and unloading, and complying with safety and security regulations. We prioritize the protection and integrity of the cargo throughout the transportation process.
ALG Charter services provide a solution for transporting goods to remote or challenging locations where commercial airlines may not operate or where there are limitations on cargo capacity or schedules. Chartering an aircraft allows for direct delivery to such locations, bypassing multiple transshipments or complex logistics.
