There are 3 very important things that you need to know about sending your goods as airfreight.


It is a requirement under International Law that airfreight shipments from unknown or non regular shippers be held for a 7 day security holding period in our approved premises.

Please also be aware that the Airfreight Baggage Company has the right to open/remove and dispose of any items that are deemed as dangerous or suspicious by the airline or government departments.

In all cases you will be required to provide a copy of you current
valid passport as proof of identity.


Some goods were never meant to fly. Please read our section on dangerous goods as severe fines and penalties can apply for non declaration of dangerous goods.


With airfreight, the cost of shipping is determined by the weight of your goods, or by the space that they use on an aircraft. So for large and light items, such as bicycles and surfboards, the charge is based on the space or volume that is used on an aircraft.
To calculate the volume of your shipment the following formula is used.

LENGTH X WIDTH X HEIGHT (in cms) = Volume Weight

The volume weight is only used if it is greater than the actual weight of your shipment.

Once we are in receipt of your shipment, we will advise you of the following:

  • The airwaybill/tracking number for your shipment.
  • The flight details and the date and time of arrival.

You will be contacted, on arrival of your shipment, by the handling agent at the destination airport. They will advise you of all the local procedures in clearing and collecting your shipment.
