Airline Baggage Service

Supplier: Pack & Send Systems

Personal effects sent through airlines can be broken into three categories.


They are:

  • Accompanied (cabin) baggage
  • Unaccompanied baggage
  • Air cargo

When sending personal effects by air, PACK & SEND offers a reliable and very economical air cargo service. By using the PACK & SEND air cargo service, you not only receive personalised 'white glove' service levels, but you can also be assured of greater peace of mind when it comes to the security of your baggage. In today's world, being comfortable that your baggage is not tampered with in transit, is a very important consideration when selecting a baggage service provider.

Alternative companies offer an airline unaccompanied baggage service. This alternative means of transporting your personal belongings has limitations. You must hold an international airline travel ticket between the origin and destination airports and your baggage must be consigned at the freight terminal before your flight. Unaccompanied Baggage is also considered low priority airfreight by all airlines. This means that it is sent on a 'space and flight available' basis. Therefore, it may be held back or off-loaded at any port during the journey to its destination.

The most important message is don't compare apples to oranges when it comes to price! When using PACK & SEND's Air Cargo service you receive a fixed price. In contrast, unaccompanied baggage providers may quote a very small per kilogram charge, but you will get caught with all the ancillary charges at the destination, which are rarely disclosed to you at the time of taking your order.
