Peculiarities of Air Freight
Air cargo shipment is carried out by non-stop and connecting passenger and cargo flights. Air shipment provides for strict requirements to the packaging of goods; the cargo must be placed in special containers, which ensures reliable fixation and safety during the journey. This option is especially relevant for perishable goods, valuable products and documents. Labeling is mandatory for each piece of cargo. It is made in accordance with the requirements of state standards (GOST) and may contain special signs, labels, and additional information. Cargo flights use air freight routes.
