Anyone who has ever flown knows that some items cannot be brought on board a plane, as they are considered dangerous. The question, so, is how can large quantities of goods defined as dangerous be shipped, on a fast schedule, when waiting for the long travel times inherent to sea transport is impossible.
The DGR IATA manual is derived wholly from the Technical Instructions of the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) but also includes more restrictive requirements in certain cases. The IATA binds all its associated airlines to the application of their manual, and given that these represent 95% of all air traffic, it's understandable that the DGR IATA manual would be more known and used about the Technical Instructions from ICAO.
With the aid of this manual and the knowledge of having attended preparatory courses and continuous refreshes, the staff of Cigisped Air Freight handles the problems inherent to the air transport of dangerous goods for all their Clients.
The classification and identification of dangerous categories, the amounts of dangerous goods allowed on board a passenger or cargo flight, like the specific requirements for approved packaging and overpacks, the labeling and marking of packages and the preparation of documents are all complex topics that become simple once entrusted to a competent and expert staff.
Cigisped Air Freight is prepared to give you help and offer clarifications if doubts about the nature of dangerous goods in need of shipment - also because, as often happens, the restrictions are more extensive than what could be believed.
We take care of everything: from handover to the port of destination.
