Expediting For Erie: Air Freight Service Erie Knows It Can Trust.
Erie, Pennsylvania. This western PA town of 90,000 is known as the “Flagship City,” a nickname that dates back to the 19th century, when Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry chose Erie as the home port for his flagship Niagara. This fact exemplifies the symbiotic relationship between Erie and logistics, as does the city’s status as the halfway point between Cleveland, Ohio and Buffalo, New York. Because the town is so strategically located and has such choice access to water, rail, and road transit networks, it has always been able to ship in critical supplies while sending out its technology, manufactured goods, and other innovative products.

But as lucky as Erie has been in its logistical access, it isn’t immune to the shipping challenges that plague any vibrant, growing city. AirFreight.com provides the immunity that Erie can’t generate on its own. Our role as an emergency freight coordinator is to organize speedy deliveries into the Flagship City on short notice. We’re there for Erie businesses when they need us most, such as when they suddenly have to fill an order on short notice or when their ordinary suppliers get stuck in traffic or blocked off by a closed road.
Our advantage lies in our ability to plan swift, reliable trips into the city from any location in North America, as well as our networks of truck and airline affiliates that allows us to easily travel to each of those locations. With AirFreight.com, your most distant supplies are never more than a day away.
Logistics has always been one of Erie’s strengths, considering the town’s access to a cornucopia of different transportation methods and networks. But even given this, Erie businesses do face shipping challenges from time to time. Sometimes, your carriers get caught in traffic, slowed down by a storm, or blocked off by a closed road, delaying your order by hours or even whole days.
Expedited Shipping Solution
Other times, the issue isn’t with your carriers at all, but rather with your customers — some big client whom you can’t afford to disappoint places a unique order on a timeline faster than your shipping process can accommodate.
In these and other situations, you need an expedited shipping solution that can bring in your supplies much faster than your standard providers.
AirFreight.com brokers just such expedited shipping. We serve Erie and other northwest Pennsylvania communities, from Girard to Summit to Meadville to Ashtabula, providing each town with easy access to their goods.

By allying with AirFreight.com, you’ll prepare yourself for every manner of shipping issue you encounter, including:
You know the type— a quirky and idiosyncratic customer who often makes difficult or unrealistic demands, but who brings so much money to the table that you can’t afford to turn them down. When one of these clients places a particularly outrageous order, logistics can be the biggest barrier to fulfilling it; how can you meet their deadline when the parts and supplies you need won’t get there until well afterward? AirFreight.com prepares for this situation in many ways, most notably by getting to know all the roads into and out of Erie. The moment we receive your order, we’ll know the best roads for our affiliates to take into Erie for that particular time of day, minimizing the chances that they’ll hit traffic or get caught in a storm. Thus, you’ll get your supplies with more than enough time to satisfy your quirkiest clients.
Another issue that Erie businesses have to deal with is when their standard shippers get blocked from completing their deliveries. Many factors can cause this, from road repairs to potholes to harsh storms to intractable traffic jams. But whatever the cause, resolving disrupted shipments is a nightmare, especially when your supplies come from hundreds or thousands of miles away and thus can’t easily be reached. But AirFreight.com has no trouble getting to such distant supplies and bringing them to you within 24 hours. Our affiliated trucks exist in virtually every North American city, allowing them to get to and load up your goods in two hours or less. Thanks to this easy access, we can start off each shipment quickly and decisively, regardless of what paths your goods must traverse.
Sometimes, the issue lies not with your customers or your shippers, but instead with your supplier. If the company selling you key supplies goes out of business or shifts production and storage to a more distant location, it can be hard for you to adapt. AirFreight.com coordinates the emergency deliveries you need to keep the supplies coming in while you redesign your standard shipping operations. Our massive network makes it easy for us to reach your suppliers’ new location, and our wealth of air affiliates allows us to bring supplies from that location to Erie in less than 24 hours, no matter how far away it is. In addition, we have the ability to charter new flights, so that if standard cargo flights don’t regularly travel between that new location and your Erie destination, one of our affiliates will set up a new flight just for you that will.
Even when all your suppliers, shippers, and customers are acting predictably, shipments can still arrive late due to the sheer complexity of your operations, which inevitably lead to mixups and other issues. AirFreight.com can help you recover from these mixups by coordinating emergency deliveries to fill in the gaps. We’re experts at accommodating even the most complex supply routes. Our skilled coordination team carefully balances all the factors that affect delivery speed and identifies routes that our affiliates can take for a swift, straight shot to Erie. Thus, no matter what your supply operations look like and what complications befall them, we’ll always be there to right the ship.
