Graphics / Printers
Graphic Arts and Printing Companies the world over recognize Graf Air Freight as the logistic model all freight forwarders and air couriers should follow. Our company name is derived from the first graphic printing customers we assisted with their transportation needs. While Graf has the ability to ship material of any type for most any industry to anywhere, the graphic industry will always hold a special place in our hearts and it is an industry in which we are particularly well suited to assist. Our services can help printers improve their production scheduling and more efficiently manage inventory. Commercial printers, pre-press firms, color separators, advertising agencies and all types of graphic arts companies have come to associate Graf with speedy, cost-effective delivery, excellent service and communication.
Graf Air Freight has been assisting many of the nation’s largest law firms and corporate legal departments with logistic solutions for over thirty-five years.

Graf’s legal services team is there to provide same day service, the latest pick-up times for overnight service and when time is not an issue, cost-efficient 2 and 3 day service to anywhere in the nation.

If ever there was an industry that required consistent, expedient and reliable logistic solutions, it may well be the airline industry. Many of our country’s top airlines and aviation parts suppliers have come to rely on Graf Air Freight to handle their AOG (Airline On Ground) shipments.

Every minute matters with our aviation industry clients and time is not always on their side, however, Graf Air Freight is there to provide around the clock expedited delivery, real-time tracking and delivery verification.
