KLM Royal Dutch Airlines presents “Air Freight,” a black-and-white promotional film designed to inform the viewer of that particular business mode. “This most modern form is transport” is used to provide consumers with a variety of items including those found on breakfast tables each morning. Mark 01:23 takes the viewer to an airport in Amsterdam where KLM Royal Dutch Airlines annual handles 15,000 tons of freight, including birds, monkeys, horses, lions, and tigers. Various varieties of flowers are packed and loaded beginning at mark 04:48 for a journey from Holland to a New York City florist, and as the film continues we see other products ranging from colorful fabrics to be used as tropical dresses to furs for use in the colder climates of Canada. At mark 06:30 a man admires a piece of art — shipped to a museum via air freight — while at mark 07:35 we’re taken to Paris to see some French perfume that will be on its way to other locations. No matter the spot on the globe, the narrator explains, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines can get the product there. At mark 10:00 we take a look at the company’s freight department in Calcutta, India, as such exotic animals as tigers and elephants are processed, and at mark 12:30 a plane delivers a piston to s ship stranded at sea. There’s nothing too small or too big, as at mark 16:55 a car is loaded onboard an airplane for transport. Air freight also serves humanity, the narrator says at mark 18:50, as we see hospitalized children who will benefit from needed medication rushed by air. “Air freight pays,” concludes the narrator at mark 21:49, “for shipping your goods by air means less packing material, less storage room, and lower insurance premiums.”
