HOW DOES TRANSPORTING CARGO BY AIRPORT TO AIRPORT WORK?
After a shipper has arranged for delivery of items to a consignee using the air cargo services of a courier and has completed all necessary paperwork, the items will be packaged, according to the requirements of the courier the shipper has selected. The courier will either pick up or collect the items and transport them to an air cargo terminal, such as Manchester's World Freight Terminal. Here, the items will undergo checks to ensure that the goods are safe for transport and all paperwork will be double-checked. Once the the goods have been cleared for transport, the items will be stored onto a pallet and loaded onto an airplane.
Once the airplane has landed at it's destination, cargo will be unloaded, further security and paperwork checks will be made, before the carrier starts processing the goods through it's delivery chain, in order for the items to successfully reach the consignee.
