A contract carriage in which a single carrier is responsible for the transportation of the shipment from its origin to the buyer’s designated airport. Door-to-airport transportation includes pre-carriage and main carriage but excludes on-carriage unless the seller is physically situated at an airport.
Door-to-door is a shipping arrangement where goods are delivered from the sender to the customer. Door-to-door is also known as house-to-house service. Direct cargo transportation between airports is known as airport to airport shipping.
The cargo must be delivered to and picked up by the deliverer and the recipient, which sets it apart from door-to-door shipment. But, even when you factor in the price of a third-party trucking business that can deliver and pick up the package, it is still a significantly more affordable method of transportation than door-to-door shipment, pound for pound.
When shipping from one airport to another, the goods is typically transferred to nearby cargo terminals by trucking companies or other third-party delivery services. The cargo is flown to a major hub, like DFW International Airport, where it is then redistributed on ensuing flights across the nation or around the globe.
