Leaders in air freight imports and exports

Air freight services

SUARDIAZ Group provides a comprehensive air freight service that is becoming increasingly popular, year after year, as a result of the experience gained. We take care of all the steps involved in the import and export process to meet the needs of our clients.

We have agreements in place with the most significant cargo airlines and we load onto both passenger and cargo planes, depending on the type of product that needs to be transported (retail, perishables, pharmaceuticals, project cargo, etc.). We can deal with different kinds of deliveries, including urgent services, hand carriers, high-value shipments, hazardous goods and also special goods, such as extra-heavy or oversized items.

The SUARDIAZ Group air freight service is customised to each client. As comprehensive logistics consultants, we deal with the handling, loading and unloading of the aeroplane at its origin and destination, as well as midway points if it is a multimodal transportation project.

Our goal is to make a positive contribution to our clients’ business. With air freight, we create added value in their logistics chains and we ensure they can undertake their business activity locally and internationally.

Experts in air freight


SUARDIAZ Group has offices in the two main airports in Spain (Madrid and Barcelona). From there, we cover every part of Spain, its islands and autonomous cities, and we can reach any international destination. China, the United States and Latin America have increased demand in recent years, but we transport cargo and all kinds of products to virtually the entire world.

We are IATA agents and we adhere to the FIATA requirements to ensure safety throughout the air freight process. We always strive for excellence and our certifications enable us to guarantee the international quality of our services.

Speed and agility

As a result of new technologies, air freight has developed over the years. At SUARDIAZ Group, digitalisation has enabled us to streamline and optimise processes and thereby offer our clients a faster service. Response time is something that we consider key to transporting goods, not just by aeroplane.

When we design a logistics strategy, we take the characteristics of the cargo into consideration in order to personalise our proposal and thereby ensure that we meet the optimal timeframes at all times.

What are IATA and FIATA?

These are international organisations that promote cooperation between air freight organisations.

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) includes over 300 airlines from 120 countries. It is concerned with flight safety, risk assessment and proposals for environmental goals to reduce net carbon emissions. IATA agents are organisations that are authorised for the transport of goods by air.

The International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA) represents over 40,000 transport and logistics companies. It is responsible for protecting the interests of the industry, proposing improvements in the quality of services and promoting professional training. FIATA also manages a series of standardised documents for forwarding agents internationally.

Benefits of air freight

One of the main benefits of air freight is its global coverage, enabling us to reach destinations that would be different to get to by sea or land. Air transport is also quick when it comes to long distances and more agile in terms of the administration involved. It is also safer for some cargo, such as when it comes to losses.

This makes air transport a good link to other means of multimodal transportation so as to offer a comprehensive service.

Can hazardous goods be transported by air?

Yes, air transport can be used to move hazardous goods, although they may be restricted to just cargo aeroplanes. National, European and international regulations stipulating how to handle, label and package goods must be adhered to, and this is checked before they are loaded onto an aeroplane.

It is the IATA that sets out the technical instructions for airlines and logistics companies to protect those involved in the transportation process, such as the staff on land and the flight itself, as well as the cargo and the environment.

Why contract the SUARDIAZ Group air freight service?

As a leading company in comprehensive logistics consulting, SUARDIAZ Group provides an air freight service for all kinds of goods, which can be combined with maritime and land transportation. We study each case to offer the best solution for the cargo to ensure it arrives at its destination in the most sustainable and quickest way possible.
