Navigating LAX Air Cargo: Freight Right's Expertise as Customs Broker

April 03, 2024

Freight Right stands at the forefront of air cargo customs brokerage, orchestrating the smooth transition of goods through one of the world’s most active cargo hubs, Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Our expertise in navigating the complex customs procedures is integral to the expeditious handling of air freight for our diverse clientele.

LAX's air cargo throughput is a critical artery in the heart of global trade, handling an impressive volume of over 2.7 million tons of cargo annually. While there has been a slight decline from the record peaks of the previous year, the current figures significantly surpass those before the pandemic, highlighting a sustained and growing demand for air freight services.

Vehicle Traffic Around LAX

A study conducted by LA car service LAXcar highlights that approximately 30% of vehicle traffic in the LAX vicinity comprises trucks, reflecting the significant role of cargo transport in the area. This underscores the importance of proficient customs brokerage services in maintaining the fluidity of the complex traffic and logistics operations around such a critical transport hub.

The efficient movement of such massive quantities of goods requires expert customs brokerage, a service at which Freight Right excels. We understand that any delay in customs can lead to a ripple effect of congestion around LAX, affecting not just freight schedules but also broader traffic flows. By offering top-tier customs brokerage services, Freight Right plays a pivotal role in mitigating these challenges, facilitating a seamless cargo movement that is as time-efficient as it is cost-effective.

Ongoing Developments

Aware of the evolving needs at LAX, Freight Right keeps a pulse on developments like the Landside Access Modernization Program (LAMP) and the Automated People Mover (APM). These initiatives are not just about enhancing passenger experiences but are expected to offer significant benefits for air cargo operations and, by extension, the work of customs brokers like us.

At Freight Right Global Logistics, we are committed to elevating the standards of air cargo customs brokerage. We do more than move goods; we navigate the intricacies of trade compliance, ensuring that our clients' freight is not only ahead of the curve but also in line with all regulatory mandates.
