Airfreight

With the race to market intensifying, it is essential to have an air-freight service provider with high performance standards and the flexibility to meet the changing needs of their customers. GEODIS Ireland is an IATA Approved carrier and our Dublin facility has “Known Consignor” status for international Airfreight shipments.

Sometimes, your goods will need to get to their destination as quickly as possible. Other times you will want a variety of tailored options that make sense for you. Or perhaps speed isn’t a priority at all – you are simply looking to save costs. GEODIS is proud to introduce three new services to meet each of these requirements; AirFlex, AirFast and AirSave. Which service is right for you?

Our AIRFAST services have been designed for customers who need their goods delivered urgently.
