How does air freight need to be packed?

During loading in the hold, the goods may be stacked on top of one another and should be able to withstand the pressure from above. Depending on the type of shipping selected, packaging always includes, for example, appropriate outer packaging, a pallet, appropriate inner packaging as well as secure closure, if applicable, edge protection, lashing straps and bubble wrap.
