BFS Cargo service levels are customer driven with an emphasis on accepting and handling your cargo product with zero defects during the entire logistic process.

Special Handling Cargo (SHC) such as perishable products (PER), pharma products, live animals (AVI), high value products (VAL) Dangerous Goods (DGR), vulnerable products (VUN) are handled according to our customer specific requirements and monitored continuously to ensure a consistent service level. Special segregated operational teams are trained and assigned to handle cargo on a daily basis.
