Booking DGR

When booking a DG shipment, check the following points:
  • Check the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations and integrate the operator/States variations to make sure that the shipment's quantities, packaging and markings are acceptable for carriage.
  • It is imperative that you use the correct Special Handling Codes to declare your dangerous goods at the booking stage (use IATA SHC table as a reference). Don´t forget to add the CAO code (Cargo Aircraft Only) for goods that are not allowed on passenger flights. Then complete your booking, including all the relevant information in the free text field (e.g. “12 packages Dangerous Goods as per attached DGD”).

    This declaration is critical for the airline to guarantee compliance and safety throughout the whole process. Please follow these steps:
    • Flight assignment: manage prohibited goods and/or DG limitations for certain airlines, destinations or aircraft types. (e.g. RBI is not allowed on KL flights, DG quantities are limited on flights to US, RRY is limited on passenger flights, ICE is limited per aircraft etc.).
    • Build-up: manage dangerous goods incompatibility (e.g flammable RFL packages must not be stowed next to Lithium RBI/RBM packages) and manage build-up restrictions (e.g. RRY packages must be put on the floor of the pallet).
    • Storage: use rooms that are dedicated to dangerous goods. (DG rooms have specific features to prevent dangerous and/or environmental incidents).
    • Handling: take appropriate precautions (e.g. RRY packages are carried on special bins at CDG).
  • Even if some DG are not subject to a formal DGD (e.g. ELI, ELM, ICE), it is mandatory to declare them on the AWB, using the correct SHC, because some restrictions may apply.

If your shipment is subject to IATA Special Provisions, send your request to Customer Support to check the relevant authorisations.

If your package is equipped with an active data logger:
  • Check the tracker model is authorised by the airline.
  • Declare it on the AWB. Capture the SHC EMD and list all the characteristics (type, name etc.) in the description field.
  • See the dedicated page Your active tracking device (afklcargo.com)
