What is air cargo?​

Air cargo or air freight is something that is transferred from point of origin to point of destination with the help of an air carrier. This method is mostly used for quick shipments across the globe. Most of the air cargo flies with the same gateway as the rest of passenger and commercial flights. 

The air cargo is generally categorized into two types that includes general and special cargo. The prior one is comprised of goods that are high value; whereas the latter include the goods that are to be transferred under special conditions.
