Why we can’t track the transit airport

After the cargo is arranged to transport, it has not been updated for a long time at the transit airport.

There are several reasons for this: 1. The transit aircraft is a small aircraft or a passenger aircraft, and the volume of the cargo is very large. The airline cannot transport so many cargo, and it needs to wait for a sufficient cargo aircraft to arrange. For example, air freight from China to TIA Tirana International Airport in Albania, the only airlines that provide international air freight include: AZ Alitalia Airline, LH Lufthansa, TK Turkish Airlines. None of the three airlines has direct flights to Tirana International Airport. The transit airports are small aircraft and there are few flights, so if you want to air freight to Tirana International Airport, it will often take a long time to stay at the airport in China an then arrange flights.

  • Not all the goods have arrived
  • The weight and volume are inconsistent with the bill of lading
  • Official website of airline
