Aircraft can be separated into 3 main groups: Narrow Body (Smaller Passenger Aircraft), Wide Body (Large Passenger Aircraft) and Freighters (Cargo Aircraft). Narrow Body aircraft can be limited to very small pieces of cargo, but are often used to get to the more remote places or are used on routes where airlines operate several flights per day. Wide Body aircraft usually operate on longer journeys or places where passenger numbers are high. They can carry much larger cargo. Very large cargo can only be carried on Freighters - the choices of Freighter service are often limited so the costs can be high. We need to make sure that any prices we quote are suitable for your goods.
Most general cargo can be carried on any type of aircraft, but there are regulations on certain types of cargo, such as hazardous cargo, that restrict them to Freighter aircraft or in some cases see them banned from flights altogether. Beat My Freight Quote agents will be able to check that the cargo can be moved. Once we have the information we will negotiate the best air freight rates with the carriers.
