Rates on cargo transported are determined either by weight, volume, value or distance, depending on the type of cargo. All goods transported are covered by a limited transito insurance cover to provide for the risk of accidents, fire and hijacking. Cargo should be well-packed and sensitive cargo should be adequately packed to qualify for handling and long distance transport.
