Practically any type of cargo can be accommodated by modern aircraft. Transportation of some categories of cargo is to be performed with adherence to special safety rules. Disregarding these rules can cause damage to aircraft and accompanying cargoes and endanger the safety of the aircrew. In particular, hazardous substances require special treatment depending on the threat level. Airfreight of dangerous goods is regulated by numerous international and local legal acts which classify cargo depending on its source of danger and regulate its transport terms, including cargo packaging, marking, and fastening. Execution of relevant rules ensures the incident-free air shipment of perishables, oversized and heavyweight goods, and chemical materials. Airfreight transportation of some chemicals and substances is not allowed. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) prohibits some toxic, flammable and corrosive substances on board cargo aircraft. Bir Dunya closely follows changes in Russian law as well as international legal regulations concerning airfreight. In this way, our specialists provide secure and timely delivery taking into account the specific characteristics of each particular cargo.
