What is All-Cargo Aircraft?

All-cargo aircraft are airplanes that are specifically designed and used for the transportation of cargo or freight, rather than passengers. These aircraft are often larger and have a higher payload capacity than passenger aircraft, allowing them to carry a larger volume of cargo. 


All-cargo aircraft come in various types and sizes, ranging from small regional turboprops to large wide-body freighters. Some examples of all-cargo aircraft include the Boeing 747F, Airbus A330-200F, and the Antonov An-124 Ruslan. 


All-cargo aircraft are commonly used by air cargo carriers, freight forwarders, and logistics companies to transport goods across long distances, both domestically and internationally. They are particularly useful for the transportation of time-sensitive or high-value goods, such as perishable goods, pharmaceuticals, and electronics.
