This course expands upon the GISTnet course T1—Introduction to Cargo Transportation with respect to air cargo, including "Why ship by air?", a detailed examination of what can and cannot be shipped by air, cargo requiring special handling, transit time and cost factors vis-a-vis distance, expedited ground (substitute) transportation options, and the air cargo operational environment including trucking before and following air transportation, plus the value-added services performed by air freight forwarders.

Note: Although we recommend taking course T1—Introduction to Cargo Transportation before this course, this is not a prerequisite for success in this course.
