Onboard Courier / Hand-Carry
Our couriers are located around the globe, well-prepared and ready for take-off. All our couriers are qualified, screened and have correct travel documents (passport and visa).
In principle we accept carry-on baggage, checked-in and excess baggage, including DGR and temperature controlled complying with airlines’ guidelines and IATA regulations.
Transport via our onboard courier service ensures a more secure, seamless and faster delivery of your time-critical consignment. Customs declaration and clearance are done via the passenger channels which speeds up the entire process. It can make a difference of minutes and hours rather than the 24 to 72 hours waiting times for normal airfreight. Our couriers maintain full custody of the items they carry throughout the entire transport, from pick-up to final delivery.
Any OBC request will be answered within 30 minutes. We always have one of our couriers ready for take-off, awaiting the final decision of our customer. Just minutes after the final booking confirmation, our courier is already on the way to the pick-up address.
Each onboard courier solution is unique. Every part of the transport, from pick-up to delivery has been created individually to meet your demand, time frame and budget.

Dedicated Drive Intra-Europe
For a door-to-door transport service throughout Europe, especially for time-critical larger shipments which can’t be transported onboard aircraft due to size, weight, commodity or schedule limitations, TCS can offer you a dedicated drive service.
Our European road transport network is continuously fine-tuned, based on our customers’ needs. Depending on the size of your shipment, we can offer small and mid-size vans or full trucks.
Every day of the week, every hour of the day, your shipment will be collected and delivered in the shortest possible timeframe.
Your consignment will be transported on a dedicated vehicle containing no other loads. Goods will not be transferred from one vehicle to another or left unattended at a depot.
Air Cargo Charters
Today’s dynamic global markets demand a logistics partner that quickly responds with reliable and competitive charter solutions.
Air cargo charter is generally an alternative which companies take when other airfreight options are impractical or impossible. This type of air transport is crucial when freight forwarder’s customers are facing a line stoppage or have oversized equipment that doesn’t fit on a scheduled cargo carrier.
TCS will offer an air cargo charter solution as an alternative in case our OBC service does not meet the required deadlines of delivery. We have a network of logistics providers and charter experts covering the globe and responding 24/7 to ensure we can handle any air cargo charter request.
With air cargo charters, freight forwarders can also find cargo uplift in constrained capacity situations. Especially when the transportation industry faces disruptions, whether they be natural catastrophes, strikes, or stock shortages. We know by experience that chartering a cargo aircraft is often requested by manufacturers and organizations handling relief goods.
