Shipping Containers and Guidelines

Delta Cargo offers shipping containers that are specially designed to help control the costs of packaging and transportation for you, and to improve security for all of us. Learn about which containers are compatible with our aircraft, the sizes of our cargo bins, and all of the available types and sizes of our containers.

Note that we will accept palletized shipments, as long as they are properly restrained.

Guidelines for Shipper-built Half-pallets

So that half pallets are properly secured and safely transported on our aircraft, please follow these guidelines:

  • Cargo on the half pallet must be built to a minimum height of 63", with at least 50% of the top surface area built to this height.
  • Half pallet cannot be vertically restrained on all four sides within the cargo compartment.
  • Height and top surface requirement precludes vertical movement of the half pallet in the cargo hold.
  • Pallets not meeting this height requirement must be rebuilt or refused for transport.
