Standard Cargo

Regardless of the delivery conditions, air cargo is referred to as standard cargo when the focus is purely on price, not on transit time and / or routing.

Based on the maximum dimensions and weights, one divides into the following ranges:

    • lower deck cargo = max. 300x220x160 cm mit max. 3000 kg / pcs
    • main deck cargo = max. 300x220x240 cm mit max. 4500 kg / pcs

At airports, where due to regulations or conditions only small aircrafts can land, strongly reduced maximum dimensions / weights per package usually apply and must be inquired separately.
