international air transport

Air transportation is fast and safe. Punctual super-efficiency has won a considerable market, greatly shortened the delivery time, and played a great role in accelerating capital turnover and circulation of logistics supply chain. Major airlines have invested a large number of flights to pick up the cargo cake. But the cost of air transportation is higher than that of sea transportation, and the time requirement is high. The cost ratio of air and sea transportation is about 1:10.

Eight elements of air inquiry:

1. Name (Dangerous Goods or not)

2. Weight (involving fees), volume (size and whether or not to bubble)

3. Packaging (wooden cases, pallets or not)

4. Aim Airport (Basic Point or not)

5. Require time (direct or diversion)

6. Require flights (service and price differences between flights)

7. Classification of Bills of Lading (Main Bill and Bill of Lading)

8. Necessary transport services (customs declaration mode, agency documents, customs clearance and delivery, etc.)

Air freight is divided into heavy cargo and pickled cargo. 1CBM = 167KG volume weight compared with the actual weight, which big charge according to which.

Composition of air freight structure

There are a lot of people doing air transportation. Do you know how the airline's air freight rate is calculated? Brief introduction, I hope to help you all.

Air freight composition:

1. Airfreight Freight (charged by airlines)

2. Fuel sur charge fuel sur charge (according to the airport, the destination price is different, Hong Kong now generally has the first 4 yuan, the previous 3.6 yuan, last year's highest 4.8 yuan, the price is adjusted by the airport, generally to Asia is 2 yuan)

3. Security inspection fee (Hong Kong charges 1 yuan/kg fixed fee)

4. Airport Operating Fee (HKD283/Ticket in Hong Kong, Airport is responsible for cargo transportation, boarding, etc.)

5. Terminal charges: 1.72/kg when the goods are handed over to the banker, the banker is responsible for punching board and other matters, and ultimately to the airport to collect)

6. Airline master bill: HKD15/bl is the bill of lading cost - real right voucher.

The composition of accounting fees for most airlines, mainly Hong Kong Airport, is described above. Because Hong Kong is a super-large free trade port, and Hong Kong airport is the largest airport in the world, with limited restrictions, a wide range of cargo aircraft, there are 78 airlines. There are more than 100 flights per day, which can be preferred under the condition of guaranteeing space and service. But the cost is generally 2 yuan higher than that in China.
