Air Cargo and CFS


In 2006, GRANE expanded its Supply Chain Services into the Air Cargo Network. GRANE DISTRIBUTION SERVICES, LLC was formed, focusing on serving the Air Freight Forwarders and Airline Industry. Our 175,000+ square foot bonded Container Freight Station in Bensenville, IL is three miles from the International gates of O’Hare International Airport (ORD).

Being the asset based solution for its customers, GRANE invested in over 40 Roller Bed trailers including 10 Drop Deck Roller Bed Van trailers that can accommodate 118” Height High Cube air pallets for a Cargo Airline Q7 position. We want our customers to feel secure knowing their cargo is protected in a van trailer and not exposed to Chicago’s rain and snow. GRANE has an AMS system, seven days per week operation and can handle any services including charter flights into Chicago.

GRANE is also a Drop Station for Chicago Rockford International Airport (RFD). Only 58 nautical miles from ORD, Chicago Rockford International Airport is an optimal Air Cargo Solution for the air freight forwarding industry around the O’Hare area. RFD is certified to handle the new 747–8h Cargo Freighters. With our extensive roller bed trailer fleet, any cargo flight can be single sourced to GRANE.

In 2011, GRANE moved to a larger CFS at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in Atlanta, GA to handle additional growth for road feeder services to either ORD or JFK Airports. Our Atlanta CFS can easily accommodate customers who need a Drop Station in Atlanta, container freight station services or serve as an office branch for any Air Freight forwarder.
