The Logistics Plus team handled the trucking from the client’s facilities to a Logistics Plus warehouse where the cargo was crated for airfreight. The cargo was then transported from the warehouse to Chicago (ORD) and New York (JFK) airports, where it was loaded onto a B747F aircraft for the charter flight to Tel Aviv. Upon arrival, Logistics Plus transported the cargo to the consignee’s facilities.

The project was successfully completed in accordance with the client’s timeline. LP Aero’s Global Director of Air Chartering, Andriy Blagovisniy, commented on this project, “This charter was a great example of the efficient teamwork of LP offices in the US and UK. No matter how complex the project, our teams are committed to finding the best solution tailored to the needs of our customers.”

OOG and AOG for Air Cargo Shipping

OOG and AOG for Air Cargo Shipping

What do OOG and AOG mean when it comes to air cargo shipping?

Explaining OOG and AOG as it relates to Air Cargo ShippingOOG stands for Out of Gauge. It refers to cargo that is too large or too heavy to fit in a standard 20- or 40-foot cargo container. OOG cargo may also have irregular shapes or dimensions that make it difficult to transport.

AOG stands for Aircraft on Ground. It refers to an aircraft that is unable to fly due to a mechanical problem. AOG cargo is any part or equipment that is needed to repair an aircraft that is on the ground.

OOG and AOG cargo are both considered to be urgent shipments, and they require special handling and transportation arrangements. OOG cargo may need to be palletized or crated to fit in the aircraft, and it may also need to be accompanied by a special loading permit. AOG cargo may need to be transported on a charter flight or a priority basis.

The cost of shipping OOG and AOG cargo is typically higher than the cost of shipping standard cargo. This is because of the specialized handling and transportation requirements. However, the cost of shipping OOG and AOG cargo is often outweighed by the cost of lost production or revenue if the aircraft is unable to fly.
