What is this, how does it work and how much do it cost?

What is this?
StandBy booking is a new service from JetCarrier™. When you book a StandBy package you choose to hold that package in the USA until futher notice. This feature is great if you intend to collect as many packages as possible, awaiting part of deliveries or unsure if your pacakges will be delivered witin the same week. Making it a great tool to cut cost pr. kilo/dm3 to a minimum.

How does it work?
Booking a StandBy package is just as simple as a normal booking. You will find an option called «StandBy» in the bookingpanel, if you click it on we will hold that package until futher notice. You may book several StandBy pacakges and you may also have StandBy packages on both AIR and SEA at the same time.

NB! the StandBy package is your only way of holding back packages on SEA freight. After this service came live we changed our transport plan and is now operating based on «what comes in, goes out». Meaning that we will send out SEA containers when they are full and not on certain dates.

How much do it cost?
