Disadvantages of air transportation 2021-06-20 11:34:271) The carrying capacity is small. Due to the limitation of the cabin volume and load capacity of the aircraft, the carrying capacity of air transportation is relatively small, therefore, it is not possible to carry large and large quantities of cargo. 2) The transportation cost is high. Aircraft purchase, lease, maintenance costs are high, and fuel consumption is high. Therefore, the cost of air transportation has always been high, and it is still one of the most expensive modes of transportation, which to a large extent also limits the development of air transportation. 3) Vulnerable to weather conditions. Because the flight conditions of aircraft are relatively high, air transportation is greatly affected by weather conditions to a certain extent. In the event of heavy rain, fog, typhoon and other weather, the punctuality and normality of cargo delivery cannot be guaranteed. 4) Poor accessibility. Under normal circumstances, it is difficult for air transportation to achieve 'door-to-door' transportation, and other means of transportation must be used for transshipment to achieve 'door-to-door' transportation. Taking all of the above factors into consideration, air transportation is more suitable for the transportation of small and high-value valuables, as well as time-sensitive, fresh, perishable and seasonal special items. For example, small and high-value commodities such as precision instruments, electronic products, and precision instruments in complete sets of equipment, such as fresh, perishable goods and products with strong seasonality such as flowers, food, seafood, newspapers and magazines, high-end fashion, etc. , There are also air mail, disaster relief supplies, etc.
