In 1972 we opened our doors for the first time. From the start, we have been building strong and lasting relationships with the world’s premier air carriers. Our mission is to utilize our experience and knowledge of the industry to deliver the best, customized service to you. Service that will strengthen every link in your supply chain.


A Full Breadth of Air Services

At EMO Trans USA we offer a unique combination of direct services, scheduled consolidations, our own operated screening facilities, and a strong focus on compliance. With a national purchasing division, we are able to diversify the services of our carriers to your benefit.
In this industry, timing is everything. When time is in short supply we’ll ship as soon as our next flight out. We can also use our BSAs to maximize your schedule and budget. We provide a single point of contact with full accountability for all aspects of your shipment, including ownership of all issues until full resolution. We aim to deliver not just your shipment, but also peace of mind.
Our experienced team is fully engaged in all levels of the industry, from advocacy, as AFA board members, to compliance and hazmat expertise, as well as working closely with TSA and CBP. We are IATA licensed and eager to bring our expertise to your supply chain.

Just the Right Size

EMO Trans USA’s strength is in our employees. We are a privately held company with 30+ offices nationwide. We maximize the potential by combining local airfreight relationships with national contracts.
When it comes to information that is critical to your shipment, we have one simple goal, to call you before you call us. With proven results and experienced personnel, we go above and beyond to exceed your expectations.
We’re just the right size – small enough to deliver flexible, customized programs and the kind of personal service that is often lost when dealing with much larger organizations and big enough to have a strong and aggressive presence in world markets while being nimble enough to navigate locally.
