Known as the Rubber Capital of the World, Akron, Ohio arose as a major production center for tires and other rubber products. That legacy lives on to this day, thanks to the operations of the Goodyear Rubber & Tire Company. But Akron businesses have also branched out into a number of other promising industries. Among the companies headquartered here include skin care and hygiene product manufacturer Gojo Industries; electric utility FirstEnergy; jewelry retailer Signet Jewelers; and leading healthcare provider Summa Health. These and other advanced companies have kept Akron ahead of the curve technologically and economically, so that nothing can stop the Rubber City from rolling along.
For the Rubber City to keep rolling on, it’s essential that supplies keep rolling in. AirFreight.com ensures that the supplies keep coming by brokering emergency air and ground deliveries. We have more than ten years’ experience serving Akron and other communities throughout Ohio, and have the resources and expertise to bring your business supplies from any point in the US, Mexico, or Canada. Our speedy coordinated services allow us to deliver from any point on the continent in a single day, so that you’ll never have to wait long for the inputs that keep your company going. Thanks to AirFreight.com, Akron has all the supplies it needs to keep succeeding.
You’d think the town that makes America’s tires could expect speedy trucking in return, but logistics is rarely so simple. In part because Akron makes so many tires and other useful products, its roads are regularly clogged by trucks bringing raw materials into the city and manufactured goods out of it. Clogged roads lead to frequent delays, so Akron businesses often find their supplies don’t arrive until hours or even days after they were scheduled. This would be bad for any company, but it’s particularly serious for Akron given that so many of its businesses are manufacturers that work on tight schedules. When a shipment is delayed, it’s no solution to just wait; Akron firms need an alternative source of supplies, and quickly!
AirFreight.com offers this quick alternative. We’ve spent more than a decade supplying Northeast Ohio, including not just Akron but also Cleveland, Elyria, Canton, Youngstown, and Mansfield. We’ve seen firsthand the logistical headaches that plague this vibrant industrial corridor, and have developed a strategy to overcome such issues. With AirFreight.com by your side, your business will be prepared for any supply disruption, no matter how unexpected.
AirFreight.com is so fast and effective in no small part because we have such a reliable team. We’ve recruited skilled drivers from every community in the US, Mexico, and Canada, carefully assessing them based on training, experience, safety, and courtesy. When you entrust your goods to one of our affiliated drivers, you know that you’re handing them over to someone you can rely on.
To reward our drivers for their high skill and reliability, AirFreight.com provides them with maximal support throughout the driving process. This means that we stay in constant communication with them, advising them on new obstacles that have arise in their path and steering them onto alternative, clearer routes. Not only is this good for drivers, but it’s good for you, because it means that your items aren’t going to be stuck in traffic due to an unexpected road closure or traffic jam. We also mandate that our drivers work in teams of two per truck, and that each driver spends an equal amount of time behind the wheel. This strategy benefits our drivers by providing each of them a chance to rest and recharge during the delivery. And again, the benefit is passed along to you, because our drivers don’t have to stop overnight and can thus deliver your items more quickly.
Besides treating our drivers well, AirFreight.com makes sure those drivers and trucks for them to operate are available in as many communities as possible. From Jalisco to Portland to Ontario to Boston to Jacksonville, our affiliated drivers and vehicles span every community in North America. Accordingly, we never have to take a lengthy trip out to your goods— we’ll already be there, or at worst within two hours of that location. Short starting trips mean we can get to your goods with minimal delay, leaving more time to travel to Akron. It also means we have the flexibility to serve any client, however unusual or remote their supply lines, with the same high standards of speed, safety, and steadiness.
For all our investments in speedy ground services, you might forget that our name is “AirFreight.com.” Don’t worry— we invest just as much in air solutions! AirFreight.com has a vast chain of affiliated airlines and planes that rivals our network of trucks and drivers. This chain gives us the ability to fly your goods out of virtually any cargo airport in North America. Our affiliated airlines give us detailed updates on their schedules so that we’ll be able to find a flight into Akron without issue, no matter where we’ll be flying from. For locations that are too distant or remote to have direct flights to Akron, we’ll find connecting flights that together will get your supplies to you in less than 24 hours. No matter how much research and coordination we have to do, we’ll make sure you have your goods on time.
