Method for Cargo Rating

All consignments received are weighed and measured to determine whether the chargeable weight should be the gross weight, or the dimensional weight.

Packaging Tips

All shipments should be crated, palletized or packaged in a manner to ensure safe transport helping to protect the shipment.
Pacific Coastal Airlines staff takes pride in helping ensure that your shipment will arrive safely to its intended destination. You can help with this process by ensuring that your shipment is packaged properly, that it can withstand normal handling, that it is safe to handle (danger does not exist to staff or to the aircraft) and that inappropriate items are not contained.
Heavy shipments must have the appropriate floor bearing weight capability beneath the item being shipped. This figure cannot exceed 75 lbs per square foot.
How to calculate floor bearing weight:
1.      L in x W in ÷ by 144 sq. in = Result
2.      Net weight (lbs) ÷ by the Result above = Lbs per square foot.
It is important that all shippers fully disclose the contents of shipments.
Packaging Tips Dos and Don'ts

Cut-off Time (drop-off of cargo)

To avoid any conflict with our flights departing on time, cut-offs are a necessary part of our business helping to ensure that our scheduled flights arrive on time.
The cut-off for all cargo is ninety (90) minutes prior to flight departure.
There is no assurance made for any customer arriving late that their cargo will be loaded on a specific flight.
