How much do you know about international air transportation?

Page view
Air transport is swift and safe. The high efficiency on time has won a considerable market, greatly shortened the delivery time, and played a great role in promoting the logistics supply chain to speed up the capital turnover and circulation. Major airlines have invested a large number of flights to take the cargo cake. However, the cost of air transportation is higher than that of sea transportation, and the time requirement is high. The cost ratio of sea transportation is about 1:10.
 
 
 
 
 
Eight elements of air freight inquiry:
 
1. Product name (dangerous or not)
 
2. Weight (involving charges), volume (size and whether the goods are unloaded)
 
3. Packing (wooden case or pallet)
 
4. Destination Airport (basic or not)
 
5. Time required (direct or diverted)
 
6. Required flights (service and price difference by flight)
 
7. Type of Bill of Lading (Main order and Sub-order)
 
8. Required transportation services (customs declaration, agent of documents, customs clearance and delivery, etc.)
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Air freight is divided into heavy cargo and dry cargo. 1CBM=167KG volume weight compared with the actual weight, which big according to which charge, of course, there is so a little secret in the air cargo, the peer should know, it is not convenient to speak here. Manufacturers who don't understand can figure it out for themselves.

Air price composition:
 
例 句 : The Airfreight was charged by the airline.
 
 
 
2.Fuel sur charge (according to the airport, the price of the destination point is different, Hong Kong is now generally the first 4 or so, 3.6 before, last year the highest 4.8, the price is adjusted by the airport, generally to Asia is 2)
 
 
 
3. Security check fee (1 yuan /kg fixed fee in Hong Kong)
 
 
 
4. Airport handling fee (HKD 283/ticket in Hong Kong, the airport is responsible for cargo loading, etc.)
 
 
 
5. Terminal charge: 1.72/kg when the goods are handed over to the banker, the banker is responsible for things such as plate making, and the final charge is handed over to the airport.
 
 
 
6. Air main bill fee: HKD15/ BL is the cost of the bill of lading -- document title.
 
 
 
 
 
The above describes the composition of most airline accounting fees, mainly for Hong Kong airport. Because Hong Kong is a large free trade port, and Hong Kong airport is the world's largest airport, fewer restrictions, a wide range, more cargo aircraft, the existing 78 airlines. There are more than 100 flights every day, in the guarantee of space and service, can be the first choice. Nevertheless charge is higher than domestic commonly 2 pieces left and right sides!
