This will be the third year without passing on rising costs to our customers. Some Accessorials have had to be changed, mostly due to direct labor cost increases directly associated with providing these specific extra requirements. Thank you for your business and we wish you a safe, healthy and prosperous 2021. Xmas Line haul schedule - The Line haul will run overnight on Wed Dec 23rd with freight available the next morning at destinations on Thur Dec 24th, and then again as normal on Sun Dec 27th with freight availability at the local Stations on Mon morning 28th Dec.

Air Charter Trucking Service Support
read moreSpecial Service has extensive experience gleaned over many years working with the premier Air Charter companies, supporting pick-up and delivery of freight direct to / from chartered aircraft on the airport apron to / from the customer's facility. This activity is not for the 'faint of heart', inexperienced drivers or the 'small mom and pop' carrier. You do not want untrained, non-compliant drivers bringing vehicles onto airports, backing up to very expensive aircraft, and/or missing schedules while that plane is burning dollars sitting on the ground.
