What Are The Types Of Air Cargo?
  • Air cargo refers to the freight that is shipping
    by flight. Large air carriers transfer these
    loads from one place to another, safely, securely
    and speedily. The goods that are transported by
    air are classified into two kinds, general and
    special. Under these two labels, the items are
    sorted, tagged and transported through air cargo
    services in Abu Dhabi.

What Are The Types Of Air Cargo?
  • General Cargo
  • This is the cargo for all general items such as
    personal effects. The general cargo covers
    regular day to day items that are of no specific
    importance as well as high-value items that
    require extra security during transit.
  • Shipping general cargo via air freight is albeit
    a costly proposition but its an option many
    around the world avail of.

  • Although inarguably expensive, it is also the
    fastest and most secure form of transportation of
    goods, something that makes it the most
    appropriate shipping option for certain kinds of
    goods. Merchants that avail this service have a
    high margin and given that their goods are mostly
    fragile and valuable, air transport serves as the
    most appropriate choice for them.
  • General dry air cargo Dubai are those items that
    do not contain any kind of liquid. Examples of
    dry cargoes are textiles, consumer goods,
    hardware and such.

What Are The Types Of Air Cargo?
  • Special Air Cargo
  • Its called special cargo when it demands special
    transportation conditions. A good example is
    perishable food items that require refrigeration.
    Food items are only one of the many special
    cargoes that are transported by air freight every
    day.
  • Other items that commonly require temperature
    control are livestock, artworks, antiques and
    such things. Goods that require special packaging
    also come under this category. For them,
    protected casings are used for extra protection.

  • How Are Cargoes Shipped by Air?
  • Both general and special cargoes are shipped in
    pretty much the same way by air freight
    forwarders. They are often consolidated into
    consoles, a step forwarders often take to save
    cost when shipping goods over long distances like
    air freight UAE to Kerala.

  • Consolidating freight cuts costs and makes
    transportation more effective. However, it does
    take some extra time to group shipments, but it
    also reduces the cost of shipment in the long
    run. All air freight shipping requires an airway
    bill which is normally issued by the airline. In
    some cases, it is released by the agent who is
    authorized with the shipping. The note is like
    evidence of the carriage contract. This bill
    needs to be shown at the gate before the items
    are loaded in the cargo and the flight takes off.

  • If you are looking to ship your cargo by air
    freight, examine your options when picking a
    shipping package. Shipping by air is fast as it
    is and unless its an urgent shipment, a standard
    one works for most.
