What is an Indirect Air Carrier (IAC)?
Faster Processing and Reduced Risk
An Indirect Air Carrier (IAC) is a term used in the United States to describe companies or individuals who are not airlines themselves but play a pivotal role in air cargo transportation. IACs act as intermediaries or freight forwarders, facilitating the movement of goods via air transportation on behalf of shippers.
