We take on the biggest and bulkiest challenges

In today’s world of harmonization and uniformity, the airfreight business frequently finds itself outside the norm and caters for all shapes and sizes. Because outsize cargo involves large and irregular dimensions, loading and off-loading equipment is not straight-forward and only a few freighter aircraft and cargo airlines can take such cargo.

We are the exception and specialized in handling the most difficult loads, thanks to our modern fleet, our experienced, dedicated and expert staff, our extensive ground facilities and our state-of-the-art cargo systems.

Your benefits with Cargolux:

  • Dedicated all-cargo carrier with a large fleet of nose-door equipped Boeing 747 freighters
  • Outsize cargo starts at 6+ m length or 2.4+ m height or width
  • Our aircraft easily accommodate 20m lengths and longer, heights up to 3m and we regularly handle shipments wider than 3.4m
  • Extensive experience with extraordinary items ranging from flight simulators to helicopters, from aircraft engines to mill wheels, from propeller drive shafts to escalators for shopping malls, machinery, vehicles, heavy generators and oil-drilling equipment
  • Shoring experts to offering tailor-made solutions for outsize and heavy shipments

  • Dense cargo up to 27 tons as well as long cargo up to 56 tons can be accomodated on our aircraft
