Horizon Air Freight was founded in 1970 at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City. We keep the world’s fleets shipshape and on-schedule with marine logistics by air, land, and sea.
In today’s global economy, maritime transport moves more than 90% of the world’s trade. Naval fleets keep our oceans safe. The cruise industry and the fishing industry each generate hundreds of billions of dollars in annual economic impact. Cable ships connect the world with robust telecommunications networks. Offshore oil, gas, and wind platforms power nations. And research vessels help us better understand our seas and our planet.
Keeping the world’s fleets equipped and supplied is a massive global undertaking, dependent on an international network of suppliers, warehouses, ports, and agents. Fleet technical directors, procurement managers, purchasing agents, captains, and engineers work heroically to keep their ships safe and productive. And for 50 years, they have relied on Horizon to get their spares, supplies, and equipment where they need them, when they need them, no matter what it takes.
Today, we serve more than 3,000 ships worldwide. With our global network of agents and facilities, we consolidate, expedite, and deliver door to deck. We simplify procurement, save our customers money, and keep their fleets on schedule: safe, able, and sailing.
As the world grows ever more connected, the importance of our commercial fleets will only increase. So will the complexity of keeping those fleets supplied and running. But at Horizon, we thrive on this. You keep moving the world. We’ll be by your side, ready and able to help.
You trust us with the critical equipment you need to keep your fleet safe, able, and sailing. We take that trust very seriously. We know how important your orders are, and we understand the consequences of equipment not arriving on time and where you need it. You can trust us to get it there. We work hard every day to earn and keep that trust.
Persistence and Grit
Two values that we consider both inseparable and essential. It’s a complicated world, and the journey from your vendors to your decks doesn’t always go as planned. But we thrive on these challenges. You still need your orders delivered. So we dig into our decades of experience and gather our global know-how. We find a way. We make a way. We get it done.
We’re not just moving purchases from point to point. We’re supporting your organization’s mission. Keeping your people safe, able, and sailing. Helping you equip and maintain your fleet without unnecessary stress and worry. We care about you and all your people at sea, and we do everything in our power to support you.
“Horizon once chartered a Lufthansa flight from Germany to Singapore to get a main engine shaft to one of our ships. We were losing five figures a day with our customer while the ship was idled. It was a very time-sensitive shipment, and Horizon saved us a lot of money.”
“Horizon has been in the marine industry for over 50 years and is trusted to get our shipments on-deck and on-time. We are very excited to bring on additional support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year in our efforts to provide superior support to owners.”
“Thank you for the hard work. It has been seamless for us. I haven’t seen any shipping disruptions with the exception of cancelled flights, which is beyond your control.”
