With a local population of just under 200,000 and a metro population of more than a quarter million, Sioux Falls is the largest metropolis in South Dakota, with more than a fourth of the state’s population calling this area home. This Plains State polity thrives due to a number of factors, including low state tax rates, skilled workers, and an abundance of investors and entrepreneurs. The result has been an overabundance of productive business facilities, including food processing plants for Smithfield Foods & John Morrell; manufacturing operations by companies as diverse as Egger Steel, Raven Industries, and Tyco International; and communications providers like Midco and SONIFI Solutions.

Sioux Falls is a relatively large city surrounded by vast stretches of rural America. This gives the town some unique business opportunities, as individuals and companies from across South Dakota converge on it for their shopping, shipping, medical care, education, and other needs. But in reaching Sioux Falls, these citizens and companies bring with them heavy traffic, making it highly difficult for the city and its officials to keep the roads clear. Clogged roads lead to delayed deliveries for firms based in and around Sioux Falls, and delayed deliveries are no small matter when you produce on tight schedules, as many local food processors and manufacturers do. Thus, to avoid losses and keep business running smoothly, it’s necessary to have a backup plan.
AirFreight.com does the backup planning for you! With more than ten years’ experience serving Sioux Falls and surrounding cities like Mitchell, Watertown, Lennox, Aberdeen, and Pierre, we’re no strangers to the mishaps of shipping in this unique metropolis. We have the skills and resources to broker successful same day deliveries for any Sioux Falls business, no matter where their supplies come from.
Chief among the skills we bring to bear is our ability to plan airtight deliveries. AirFreight.com never cuts corners when we plot out a new shipment. Instead, we evaluate a host of potential routes based on all the relevant factors. To make sure your shipment doesn’t get caught in traffic, we consider traffic patterns and reports, choosing roads that are least likely to be clogged during the specific season and time of day when our affiliated drivers will have to travel on them. To avoid getting slowed or stopped by storms, we consult weather reports, identifying routes where our affiliates are unlikely to run into harsh conditions. And to ensure that none of our affiliated trucks gets blocked by a closed road or slowed down by potholes and pavement cracks, we review road maintenance reports and other indicators of road quality. By balancing all this information, AirFreight.com can find a route that’s perfect for you.
In addition to balancing ground delivery factors, AirFreight.com is also adept at accounting for all the variables that affect air shipments. Our comprehensive air delivery network is made up of affiliated cargo airlines that fly out of every major North American city, including those in Mexico and Canada. We plan air deliveries by considering airfield maintenance, air traffic, weather, and any other factors that might disrupt the plane. Based on these factors, we’ll select a direct flight to Sioux Falls that is both quick and minimally risky. Should no such direct flight be scheduled, we will look for connecting flights, piecing together trips between multiple cities that will get your goods from their starting point to Sioux Falls within the allotted time. And if even connecting flights can’t cut it, our cargo airline partners have given us the ability to charter new flights. We can set up an air charter that’s just for you, which flies directly to Sioux Falls and reserves cargo space for your goods alone.
AirFreight.com pulls out all the stops to make sure your goods arrive on or ahead of schedule. We adopt a dedicated trucking strategy, which requires our affiliated drivers to reserve their truck beds for one customer at a time. We also require them to operate in teams, with a spare driver in each truck ready to take over when the one behind the wheel needs rest; this ensures there’s no need to stop overnight. We also track both ground and air deliveries and advise the drivers or airlines on avoiding any unexpected obstacles that they encounter on the way.
