Priority Parcel Service (PPS)
When using this service, think dimensionally. The combined dimensions of length, width and height of each package cannot exceed 90 inches. The maximum allowable weight of each piece is 100 lbs/45 kgs.
Expeditefs and Confirmedfs
The maximum size and weight allowed for Expeditefs and Confirmedfs shipments depends on the aircraft and its destination. However, we regret that shipments of extreme length, excessive weight, unusual shape or those requiring special handling may not be accepted without making advance arrangements.
lease mark your shipment legibly on two adjoining sides with the name, street address and telephone contact for both the shipper and consignee. If you have personal effects and animal shipments that show the consignee address as "hold at airport," it will not be accepted. Also, remember to remove or obliterate old labels and markings.
If you are shipping any type of animal, these shipments have special requirements. Please click on Shipping Animals for details and instructions.
If you want to ship barrels, cans, drums, jerricans, pails and the like in their original form, please know that these are reserved for wide-body flights only. All barrels must be secured upright and either banded or strapped to a skid or pallet. If you are shipping multiple barrels, please firmly shrink-wrap or band them together and place them securely in an upright position. If you are planning on dropping off a customer-loaded container, please shrink-wrap or band the barrels together within the container.
Barrels may be acceptable for shipping on narrow-body aircraft if they are contained in an overpack, such as a box or other non-barrel container.
Place orientation arrows or labels on all packaging.
Blood and Urine Samples
Please pack shipments of this nature according to IATA packaging instructions.
Dry Ice Shipments
When shipping dry ice (Carbon Dioxide, Solid) or any other dangerous good, please remember that it is your responsibility to comply with all IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations. Please read our Shipping Dangerous Goods section for more.
If you are shipping full oxygen containers, please remember that these are dangerous goods, also known as restricted articles, and are required to meet IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations. An empty oxygen container with no dangerous residue is not a restricted article.
Wrap pole-vaulting equipment in a rectangular-shaped package or strap it to a narrow pallet. This will prevent rolling during transportation.
