DASH® Heavy

Ship large packages through
our domestic express service.


DASH Heavy is our premium express service for shipping packages that do not fit the size requirements of DASH. Offered on our entire fleet of domestic flights throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, DASH Heavy provides the same benefits of our unparalleled service − on a bigger scale.

With DASH Heavy, we'll help get your shipment to its destination as quickly as possible. Additionally, you'll receive:

Better Service, More Convenience

Take advantage of personalized, airport-to-airport service, same-day delivery (if available) and a high boarding priority. Plus, for your convenience, DASH Heavy shipments may be tendered as shipper-built palletized or unitized conveyances. Simply bring your pallet or container to your local Delta Cargo facility, and we'll take care of the rest.

A Broad Domestic Network

Our DASH Heavy service is available on any Delta flight in our domestic network, including Delta Connection® flights − meaning you have access to more than 240 destinations and thousands of departures throughout the day. Size limitations may apply on smaller aircraft.

Maximum Reliability

DASH Heavy is backed by a 20% service-level guarantee on freight charges, up to $50,000 per air waybill or the actual value declared (whichever is less) if the shipment does not move on its booked flight(s).**

GPS tracking provides an extra layer of reliability throughout the shipment lifecycle with monitoring available on deltacargo.com. This is available on-demand at a cost of $25 per device (one-way lease) for shipments that originate in ATL, CVG, DTW, LAX, LGA, MCI, MEM, MSP, SEA, SFO, SLC, STL and TPA.
