Quality is very important to us. We do our utmost to solve your question, no matter how complicated. You can be confident that we will handle your shipment with the greatest care and a huge dose of dedication. From special projects, chartering, door-to-door, groupage, express, ADR or handling of customs formalities, our employees are ready for you.
Everything revolves around speed
The speed of action is one of the most important parts of our airfreight department. Not only the speed that you have your goods available, but also the speed in response to your questions. Our employees are ready at our office at Schiphol for the optimal supervision of your shipments. Thanks to our own customs warehouse and our own trucks, we can act quickly and flexibly.
Via the Neele-Vat network, your air freight shipments are delivered safely and quickly throughout Europe. From the handling at Schiphol to the customs clearance of the goods. We manage the entire process in-house. This ensures that your shipment will arrive on time at the destination. Of course this also works the other way. We also collect your shipments throughout Europe and transport your goods to Amsterdam Airport to transport them worldwide.
International Air Transport Association (IATA) is a trade organization on behalf of the world’s airlines. IATA supports airlines, sets standards and works as a cooperative body between all airlines. By becoming a member of the IATA we are allowed to buy directly from the airlines.
Authorized Air Freight Agent
Neele-Vat and its employees meet the conditions for the status of Approved Agent. For example, a basic safety investigation (security audit) has taken place. This research consists of:
- Assessing the Security Program
- A telephone conversation with our air freight safety adviser
- A visit to our location. During this visit, a supervisor of the Royal Netherlands Marechaussee checks your security measures and procedures in practice.
We are proud to inform you that Neele-Vat is a recognized air freight agent. Because of this recognition, the “safe cargo” chain will remain closed, provided that you are registered as a “known sender”. Now your cargo gets faster access to airports and planes.
With our office at Schiphol the world is literally at our feet. Neele-Vat Air is strategically located in the heart of Schiphol. Thanks to this strategic location, we can respond adequately to developments regarding your air cargo shipment.
To serve every airport in the world, we use the WCA (World Cargo Alliance) network. WCA is the world’s largest and most powerful network of independent freight forwarders, with more than 6,571 member offices in 192 countries around the world. Because of this, no destination is too crazy for us.
