THE THEORETICAL BASIS
Everything that related in terms of air cargo shipments has been set in the IATA which also contains TACT rules & rate and standard ground handling agreement (2008). Cargo are shipments that transported by aircraft (not the same as luggage) and subject to the payment required by the shipping carrier that is recorded in SMU (Surat Muatan Udara)/Air Cargo Letter for domestic and AWB (Air Way Bill) for international. “Basic Cargo guidebook IATA TACT Rules and Rates, by M. Rifni, SE, et al, page 21. Year 2011”.
Before the cargo go in to processing into the warehouse, the cargo must go through the stages of initial checks on the acceptance export. The documents of the goods have been verified and done weighing to determine the weight and volume of goods (chargeable weight is obtained which is the greatest weight to search cargo rates and charges). Once the document is complete with payment of shipping goods, the goods are checked again using X-ray (not applicable for live animal) by the staffs from AVSEC, after passing through the X-ray, goods are labeled indicating they are ready for the next process.
The general requirements of cargo revenues are :
1. Providing equipments and adequate carrying capacity.
2. A / L reverses the right to refuse shipment of goods without taking responsibility incurred when the situation demands so.
3. A / L can reject goods that have a value of goods exceeds the amount specified by the airline regulations.
4. A / L reserves the right to examine the packaging and contents of all submissions and investigate the correctness and validity of the information submitted documents relating to the shipment.

If we use Surat Muatan Udara (SMU)/Air Cargo Letter in the domestic cargo shipments, while in international cargo shipments using Air Way Bill (AWB). Airway Bill (AWB) / SMU is the most important cargo documents, released by the airline or agent appointed partner, and can not be traded or transferable. “Basic Cargo guidebook IATA TACT Rules and Rates, by M. Rifni, SE, et al, page 102.2011”
The process of acceptance is only done checking the number of Air Way Bill (AWB) to ensure the number of Air Way Bill (AWB) on the goods as stated in the document. The numbers are printed on goods weigh evidence. Bukti Timbang Barang (BTB)/ Goods Weigh Evidence consists of 4 sheets of white, blue, red, and yellow is given to each according to the type specified the white file for the shipper, blue for the airline, red for the cashier, while yellow file kept by the acceptance.
The payment of “air transport costs” also occurred in the acceptance section that paid at the cashier. Charge is the amount to be paid for the carriage of the shipment, based on the rates in force, or the amount charged for services incurred in connection with the transportation of the shipment.
“Basic Cargo guidebook IATA TACT Rules and Rates, by M. Rifni, SE, et al, page 79.2011”.
Calculation of the cost of the goods obtained by the greatest weight (chargeable weight) timed with the applicable rate. All fees and rates calculation has been governed by the organization’s international airline (IATA) in TACT rules and rates.
