AsstrA provides a full range of logistics and transport services supporting international air cargo transportation. Air cargo services are currently one of our most popular offerings. Passenger transportation has been facing a decline in demand recently, while cargo transportation volumes are steadily growing. Cargo transportation by air is in high demand irrespective of market conditions thanks to fast delivery times to any destination, high cargo security levels, and low risks of loss, waste or misappropriation. If fast delivery is crucial for you, international air cargo shipping is your best choice. For example, air freight from China to the UK can take from 2 to 5 days, depending on the Chinese airport of origin.
AsstrA organizes and provides international air freight shipping services in such a way that our clients can enjoy all the benefits of this transport mode. Our specialists analyze customer’s needs and cargo characteristics before developing optimal transportation routes and calculating airfreight costs. AsstrA provides timely delivery of any goods regardless of distance and route specifics. Thanks to productive cooperation with international airlines, our company offers a flexible pricing policy and provides high-quality air cargo transportation.
Practically any type of cargo can be accommodated by modern aircraft. Transportation of some categories of cargo is to be performed with adherence to special safety rules. Disregarding these rules can cause damage to aircraft and accompanying cargoes and endanger the safety of the aircrew. In particular, hazardous substances require special treatment depending on the threat level. Airfreight of dangerous goods is regulated by numerous international and local legal acts which classify cargo depending on its source of danger and regulate its transport terms, including cargo packaging, marking, and fastening. Execution of relevant rules ensures the incident-free air shipment of perishables, oversized and heavyweight goods, and chemical materials. Airfreight transportation of some chemicals and substances is not allowed. The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) prohibits some toxic, flammable and corrosive substances on board cargo aircraft. AsstrA closely follows changes in Russian law as well as international legal regulations concerning airfreight. In this way, our specialists provide secure and timely delivery taking into account the specific characteristics of each particular cargo.

Air cargo transport customers often face challenging requirements.

These types of cargo now account for more than half of the shipments we complete for customers in this space. We eagerly strive to provide the highest service standards, the most competitive prices, and full peace of mind for each client.
In the case of high-urgency door-to-door deliveries that cannot be delayed at borders for any reason, we offer an On-Board Courier service. There are several limitations to consider:
- Packages should weigh no more than 23 kg.

If your requirements exceed these limits, we are more than willing to find alternative solutions.
Air cargo transportation is a complex process that initially requires careful attention to legal compliance.
Air transport involves a wide range of obligatory legal compliance paperwork. Local civil regulations, federal level aviation rules, and national and international regulations on codes, certifications, and licensing must all be observed.
The Chicago Convention on International Civil Aviation, the Warsaw Convention for the unification of certain international air carriage rules, and some ICAO regulations carry international legal force. AsstrA ensures compliance with them all. Our customers can be confident that they will not experience legal complications with their shipments. Likewise, we take responsibility for satisfying all paperwork requirements related to shipping, waybills, and customs declarations.
We look forward to cooperating with you! For more information on our services, please contact us via our website or at our nearest AsstrA office.
