The transport of goods or goods by air freight was really only known in 1960, before this transport option was not in use. Not to mention military actions, of course. Because very large aircraft are now being built, it is possible to transport even large and heavy goods. If you just think of the plane called “Guppy”, it becomes clear what kind of large goods can be shipped by air freight. Airplanes whose fuselage is considerably enlarged are called “guppies” in specialist circles.
Usually the guppy is a fish. These expanded-hull aircraft are named after the fish because guppies have a badly bloated stomach when they are pregnant. These fish are viviparous. The conversion of aircraft made it possible to transport bulky, very large and heavy goods that could not be accommodated in normal aircraft. This type of conversion of the aircraft, i.e. the “guppies”, resulted in an almost revolutionary advancement in air freight. The Boeing B-377 Stratocruiser is the best known example of such an aircraft conversion. NASA gave the order at the time, as ever larger rocket parts were being built and these had to be transported from one place to another.
The cargo aircraft has grown rapidly over the past 40 years, as air freight transports it quickly.
Advantages of air freight:
Disadvantages of air freight:
Which goods are better to be transported by air freight?
Every second counts, especially when it comes to organs that have been approved for transplants. In many cases it is also the case that the donor lives in a completely different country than the patient who needs the organ. Organs can only be used for a certain period of time, which is why they are always transported by air freight. This transport route goes without saying for animals. Vegetables and fruit are also perishable and must be transported quickly. Even high-quality goods are usually transported by air, as safety is the top priority.
Legal basis of air freight:
As with all transport options, there is a need for a legal basis for air transport which is properly consumed with Pakistan Cargo Dubai. There is a so-called agreement (contract) so that the aircraft can fly over the different countries unhindered. All states that operate air traffic are members of the ICAO. This organization also selected the English language as the general “aviation language”. The ICAO regulates international traffic rights, which also include the “freedoms of the air”.
Freedom of the air
Furthermore there is a kind of 8th freedom: the “cabotage law”. This right allows people, goods and mail to be transported between at least two, but also more, airports within the territory of a foreign country. By the way, a sovereign territory is the airspace over a certain country.
