Sterling Global Aviation Logistics, part of the Kuehne + Nagel Group, has just published a new white paper focused on shipping aircraft tire assemblies by air, an aircraft part that can be challenging from a classification and logistics standpoint.

This informative resource, authored by Dave Macha, the Quick Group Director of Dangerous Goods Compliance, was designed to provide shippers of aircraft tire assemblies what they need to know to ensure their shipments are prepared according to the latest guidelines.

Sterling’s new white paper covers a comprehensive range of practical guidance, including overviews of:

  • The criteria for determining when aircraft tires are considered dangerous goods.
  • The two sets of rules regarding the transportation of tire assemblies via air – the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (49CFR).
  • The shipper’s responsibilities – what they need to do in addition to meeting IATA or 49CFR requirements.

“Sterling is not only committed to being a proven, reliable source for mission-critical aviation and aerospace transportation, we also want to serve as our clients’ go-to, business-critical information resource,” says Claus Engelbrechtsen, Executive VP, Sterling Global Aviation Logistics. “Publishing white papers like this one on shipping aircraft tire assemblies by air is another way we can support our clients, helping them stay on top of the latest guidelines and ensuring their shipments are transported quickly, precisely and compliantly.”
