Web deal to boost AMI

AIR Menzies International expects an all-inclusive web offer to treble income from the category after expanding it to imports.
The deal branded ‘click2ship’ includes collection at origin, customs clearance and delivery but excludes duties and taxes.
Previously available on US exports, AMI has expanded the same online deal to imports to the States from global destinations.
Business won this way already accounts for 3 per cent of the company’s American income but Peter Weir, AMI’s US senior vice president believes that is only the start: ‘We expect the addition of imports to take it to more than 10 percent within the next year.
‘We have been encouraging customers with minimums to try it, as it offers better rates than airport-to-airport services, but for a full door-to-door service with online track and trace we can be very competitive.’
