“How do we go about booking air freight”
“Simply call CargoMaster 24/7, for urgent air freight bookings. Call 1300 767 136 24/7 Australia-Wide”
“What documentation do I need when consigning Air Freight”
“This will depend on the destination of your cargo and what your air cargo is. If you have domestic air freight,t you will need to declare the goods on a con note as NON HAZ or HAZ cargo. A packing list is always helpful too. If you have international air freight you will need to organise a airway bill. Call CargoMaster Freight Forwarders for domestic air freight and international air freight”
“What is the difference between air cargo and air freight”
“No difference at all, just different name for the same thing. We notice the term “Air Cargo” seems to be used more in the USA and “Air Freight” is more commonly used in Australia. The terms air freight and air cargo are simply a description of how the goods will be transported or have been transported”
“How is air freight cost calculated”
“Air freight is calculated based on the “chargeable weight” of the goods. In air freight terms chargeable weight will either be the “volumetric weight” or the “actual (dead weight)” whichever is the greater. In other words, if your cargo is big ,bulky cargo but is very light then it is most likely your cargo will be charged at the “volumetric weight”, on the other hand if you have really heavy cargo, for example a piece of lead weighing 50kg but is only the size of a brick, then it would be charged at the “actual or dead weight”, because the shipment would be heavy but relatively small.”
“How much is the air freight rate per ton”
“Air freight is normally charged at per kilogram rate, so whatever the kilogram rate is times 1000 will give you the air freight rate per ton. In relation to international air freight sliding rates per kilogram will apply. If you have over 1000 kilograms of air freight call CargoMaster for special spot rate deals for air freight rates per kilogram”
THE IMPORTANCE OF AIR FREIGHT DIMENSIONS
It is important that you provide the dimensions of your cargo when seeking an air freight quote. Providing the exact dimensions will help to ensure you get an accurate quote and your freight will move quickly without hold ups due to misunderstanding about cargo size. Dimensions are important when utilizing air freight services, dimensions help to establish if the cargo is volumetric and if the cargo will fit into the aircraft. Dimensions can be provided in millimeters, centimeters and meters.
All aircraft are different in terms of the size of the cargo they can carry. CargoMaster can help you with finding an aircraft suitable for your air cargo.
In Australia air freight is carried in several different types of aircraft. The main types or aircraft moving Australian domestic cargo are 737, 767, A320 and A330.
Dimensions (dims) include:
- The measurements of the cargo (length by width by height)
- Weight of the cargo
- The number of pieces , count (i.e. cartons)
Its impossible to provide an accurate quote without the correct dimensions. Because it’s difficult to calculate if the cargo will be moving in a passenger plane or a cargo-only plane (called “freighters”). Acceptable dimensions vary depending on which type of plane your cargo is being loaded into. Below is a chart showing maximum cargo height, length, and width for each type of aircraft.
follow these guidelines when considering maximum cargo height:
LENGTH AND WIDTH

Outsize cargo may require special charter services.
