Fundamental purpose of an international airfreight wholesale business is to provide value added international airfreight service exclusively to freight forwarders. Airfreight wholesaling is the process by which freight agents can purchase space through the intermediary wholesaler for lower rates than offered by the carrier.

In airfreight, this is achieved either by the wholesaler consolidating many small shipments into a single booking, taking advantage of the lower rate per kilogramme offered by airlines for larger shipments, and then sharing the cost saving with customers, or it can also be achieved by combining dense cargo and volume cargo on the same airline pallet to maximise the chargeable capacity of the pallet without exceeding its physical weight limit.
