What does D2D mean?
Door-to-door (D2D) describes a shipping method where the product is picked up at the door of the vendor and delivered to the recipient’s door.
Door-to-Door transport with airmates
We at airmates are specialists in emergency- and spare part logistics . When you order a shipment at airmates, it is usually urgent and there is no time to bring your shipment to a regular shipping company. This is why our On Board Couriers are picking up your shipment at your door and bring it immediately to its final destination. During the booking process, you give us both addresses, and in less than a minute you will have a bookable offer for an On Board Courier.
Watch out for shipping methods
For the recipient Door-to-Door sounds great at first, as the shipment is brought to where he wants it. But you should be precise in phrasing the modalities of the shipment. Unlike DDP or DAP, D2D is not part of the Incoterms, the international trade terms of the ICC (International Chamber of Commerce). The shipping method Door-to-Door does not entail the question who has to pay for customs in international transports. With a Door-to-Door transport from airmates you are on the safe side: if required, we can manage the entire shipping process including customs procedures.
