Special cargoes are one of the most preferred cargo types in airline transportation. Labelling, loading, and storage processes require certain rules during the transportation of special cargoes. Cargoes that are not certified by the sender are not suitable for airline transportation. There should be two copies of these certificates. The nature, quantity, type and information of the packaged products should be indicated with a label. Cargoes that can be considered as special cargoes are cargoes that can be damaged, heavy cargoes, diplomatic cargoes, live animals, funerals, fluid substances and valuable cargoes.
