What to Consider When Shipping Items on Air Freight?

We understand that transporting goods by air can be daunting. With years of experience and sheer dedication, we make it easy for you. Air freight transportation generally comes with a set of heavy rules, regulations, and formalities. We are here to make you aware of every step comprehensively and guide you throughout.

If you are planning to ship your valuable goods by air freight, here’s what you need to know: 

  • In general, options for air freight transportation include commercial cargo aircraft, passenger aircraft's cargo hold, and passenger aircraft.

  • In the common procedure, the air freight provider you've chosen receives the cargo at the airline terminal to begin the air freight transit process. Following preparation, it is loaded into the aircraft.

  • In contrast to passenger airline cargo, commercial cargo is a special service where the entire plane is a cargo hold, which is a giant flying container. In commercial cargo, large palletised freight, boxes, coffins or human remains, automobiles, machinery, and occasionally animals can be transported with care.

  • Depending on where you are and where your goods are going, air freight transportation can take a while. But bear in mind that this only applies to air travel, excluding the time taken to deliver the goods to the aircraft and then to the desired destination after landing.

  • The cargos that transport your goods are two types: General Cargo, Special Cargo.

General Cargo or Special Cargo?

Our air freight services in Singapore always comply with (International Air Transport Association) IATA guidelines, and here’s how we classify your goods under general and special cargo:

  • Items classified as general cargo do not fall under the Special Cargo categories and do not need to be handled or transported with additional care. Retail and the majority of consumer goods, including textiles, hardware, and dry goods, fall under this category.

  • The term "special cargo" refers to products that may require special packing, labelling, paperwork, and treatment along the transport chain due to their nature, weight, dimensions, or value. This includes products that are temperature- and time-sensitive, dangerous goods, live animals, and perishable and wet cargo.

What Can You Ship by Air? 

Unlike land freight and sea freight, the things you can transport on air freight are limited. Here’s a list of the items that most airlines accept:

  • Pharmaceuticals

  • Produce and perishable agricultural products

  • Seafood

  • Just-in-time production and emergency shipments of parts

  • Seasonal items with a short life, such as fruits

  • Exotic plants and flowers

  • Documents

  • Production samples

  • Electronic consumer goods

  • Live animals
