Aeroplanes enable not only a passenger network with the entire world, but also offer the facility to transport the goods by air freight. Passenger and freight transport are closely linked with each other. Approximately 50 % of all the goods are transported in the bellies of passenger aircrafts, technical jargon for it is “Belly-Cargo“. This type of transport is due to the fact that international markets are connected with each other and could be connected further.
For small loading volumes, time-critical shipments and valuable freights, loading by air freight represents genuine alternatives of shipments.
Especially, in the commercial area, the air freight often presents underestimated advantages. For example, the necessity of warehousing is clearly reduced because a quick, on-time and demand-based provision is guaranteed for (subsequent) deliveries. Quick response is possible to the variations in requests by air freight, without provision of a large “buffer” for goods. Also for transport of goods with special urgency over long distances, for example, relief aid, live animals and precious goods, air freight is the optimum mode of transport. The transport chains in the air freight transport are planned and organised accurately, precisely and on time. Security, promptness and protection are the features of air freight and are considered as its clear advantages.
