Air Freight Restrictions

While air freight is a great option for getting goods where they need to go in a hurry, there are restrictions on certain goods that can be carried by air – particularly for cargo classed as “dangerous goods”. Here are a few examples of the type of cargo that may face restrictions when sent via air freight:

  • Acids
  • Bleach
  • Batteries
  • Compressed gas
  • Explosives
  • Flammable liquids
  • Ignitable gas
  • Matches/ lighters

Benefits of Air Freight Forwarding


It should come as no surprise that air freight forwarding is, more often than not, the fastest method of moving cargo from point A to Point B. This speed of transport is usually the biggest factor in choosing air freight over other options.


When it comes to transporting cargo, air freight is a highly reliable option due to the well-organised scheduling of airlines. By teaming up with a trusted air freight forwarder like Jacanna, you can stay up to date with these schedules and optimise your supply chain by utilising planned cargo transportation.

Wide Reaching

Sometimes, the delivery or pick-up location will not be easily reachable by sea or road transport. In these situations, you can rely on Jacanna’s relationships with airlines across the world to ensure your cargo can get wherever it needs to go, no matter how remote.


Plane transport can be a highly secure solution for safeguarding your cargo against potential damage or theft. It involves minimal handling, and airports have strict measures to ensure safety and security.


While air freight is often the more expensive forwarding method, it isn’t always! You can save money on packing, warehousing, and insurance expenses. Because air transport is faster, you can rely less on warehousing and benefit from reduced insurance premiums, too.


Airports and their staff pay close attention to every detail, enabling them to collect vast amounts of data that can be used to track your cargo throughout its journey. At Jacanna, we take it upon ourselves to provide you with all the information you need to stay updated on the status of your cargo.

Frequently asked questions

If you need to ship your goods internationally and speed is a priority, air freight is the fastest option. However, this method of shipping is generally more expensive than other alternatives. The volumetric ratio determines the cost, meaning that the price is calculated based on both the weight of your cargo and the amount of space it takes up on the aircraft.

There are three ways to ship cargo through air freight: using a unit load device (ULD), palletised shipment, or loose cargo. The dimensions for standard palletised air freight are limited to 2.44m x 3.15m x 1.60m. However, if your cargo is longer or wider than this, you may still be able to transport it via airfreight, but it will be subject to airline acceptance and require ad hoc pricing.

It’s important to have the right documents when shipping items by air to prevent customs clearance delays. If the freight arrives with incorrect documentation, you may face fees or fines from the destination country’s customs authorities, as well as extended storage charges.

Here’s what you may need for air freight forwarding:

  • Commercial invoice
  • Consular invoice
  • Certificate of origin
  • Shipper’s export declaration
  • Bill of lading
  • Export packing list
  • Inspection certificate
  • Other additional documents
