1. General comments

Over the past few years, air freight has become increasingly important. The guide makes some recommendations on air requirements for freight packaging. The following recommendations are based on normal loads and stresses during air transport and transportation. They are examples only, other options may be better suited and different regulations may apply. IATA, International Air Transport Association regulations and the German Luftfahrtbundesamt LBA (German equivalent) must be respected in all circumstances. Individual air carriers often impose their own rules on delivery and packaging. The following remarks are, therefore, indicative only and specific details must be agreed with the air freight carrier in advance. Certain shipments may not be shipped by air or are subject only to shipment specific circumstances. These are set out in the “Technical Instructions”

International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO TI) and/or IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations, IATA DGR.

  1. Preparation and Precautions

The customer and packer must agree in advance on the following matters


•The airline is responsible for the transportation of the cargo

•Type of aircraft selected for transport

•Packaging quality, size and center of gravity

•Choose routes and locations for storage and transfer

  • Sensitivity of packaged goods

•Cargo sensitivity to vibration and temperature


•The hygroscopicity of the goods or their extent

Affects the air humidity inside the packaging

3.Transportation pressure and load

Protection needs

3.1 Transportation pressure

Packaging must be designed to withstand a vertical load of 3 grams and/or 1.5 grams forward, rearward and sideways. This is equivalent to 1.5 or 3 times the weight of the packaged goods.

Each linear mass and maximum loading height must be used during air transport. This must be taken into account when designing packaging. It makes sense to optimize the shape and profile of the packaging from the loading area.

Vibrations during air transmission can reach values between 5 – 500 Hz. In case of special packaging, the customer needs to inform the packer that the goods need to be protected from them.

3.2 Ensure that air pallets with special loads are used for packaging goods during air transportation. They are secured directly to the pallet with netting and/or strapping. The pallets are then loaded and secured using personal vehicle transport

Fastening system. If pallets exceed certain carrier or aircraft specific weights and/or dimensions, they cannot be secured with onboard fastening systems. Therefore, the cargo must be secured directly to the bottom of the cargo to hold itself and lashings are the only means used for this purpose. In this case, sufficient number of fastening devices i.e. 1 ton each must be provided including length wise. This number must be

This is possible even with open packaging without compromising any corrosion protection. Special belts are used to knock down the cargo. They must be spaced at least every 0.50 meters in a given direction.

  1. Atmospheric influence

Many aircraft types have temperature controls that maintain pressure compensation. However, temperature and pressure losses must be provided. Sudden climate fluctuations can also be triggered in the country of origin or during stopovers. precaution

Measures must therefore be taken to avoid corrosion.

  1. Packaging suggestions

Some may require personal authorization from the air carrier to package merchandise or merchandise exceeding a given weight. Products with packaged goods exceeding a certain quality shall not be packaged in airtight packaging. This HPE guidance generally applies to all aspects of packaging itself.
