Special Cargo Investigation Special cargo refers to the goods that necessitates special protection or handling such as detonators, pyrotechnics, watches, and precision instruments. There are different classes of special cargo including cumbersome and oversized cargo, perishable loads, moist/wet weight, human remains, goods with an unpleasant smell, live animals, art and museum exhibits, valuable cargo, human blood and organs, and diplomatic cargo. These types of cargo require special handling, regulations, and aircraft considerations before it is ferried to any destination globally. In this article, three categories are discussed in details and includes live animals, wet cargo, and dangerous cargo (Wensveen, 2012). Live cargo The shipment of live cargo is administered under the IATA live animal regulations (LAR) that is sanctioned by the International Animal Health Code Commission of the Global Organization For Animal Health. Shippers willing to ferry live animals by air have to comply with the IATA Live Animal Regulation wholly. Such shippers must also conform to all government regulations that apply in the country of transit, origin, or destination (Burlingame, 2014).
