Columbus, OH (PRWEB) May 13, 2012
AirNet Cargo Charter Services, a leading small package express cargo airline, today announced that it has expanded its air cargo shipping solutions to include regional scheduled flying. The new scheduled service, branded as SPD (Scheduled Package Delivery), is a regional service designed for multiple customers that have regular small parcels in defined lane segments.
Key to the implementation of SPD is AirNet’s extensive fleet of Cessna 210 aircraft. Traveling at a speed of 175 mph, with a payload of 900 lbs. (105 cubic feet with the ability to carry 33 lbs / 15 kg of dry ice), the Cessna 210 is a fast, reliable, and economic option for flights ranging from 200 to 400 miles. It is ideal to service congested markets where lengthy traffic delays can exponentially increase drive times.
“Many of our customers are pleasantly surprised at how economical it can be to fly their packages instead of driving them at these distances,” commented Frank DiMaria, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at AirNet. “Our SPD service helps our customers provide faster, more reliable service to their customers. Why drive five hours when you can fly in two hours for about the same price?”
“Although our SPD service is appealing and adds value to customers within many different industries, it has been of particular benefit to our medical and diagnostic laboratory customers,” Holly Stapleton, Marketing Manager at AirNet stated. “By flying specimens instead of driving them, our lab customers have been able to gain market share by expanding their geographic reach, providing quicker turnaround time, and increasing the productivity of their labs.”
