One of our primary concerns is dangerous goods. It is against federal law to drop off freight or Priority Parcel Service shipments to American Airlines, American Eagle and AmericanConnection containing dangerous goods that have not been properly declared, identified, packaged, marked, labeled and documented. If you don't follow our guidelines, the United States Department of Transportation may hand down penalties of $250,000 or more and up to five years in prison.

At American Airlines Cargo, our priority is your shipment's safety. Here, you'll find the latest in security news and how to best protect your package shipment.
Here's the latest:
We recommend that a detailed consolidation manifest accompany each consolidation. This will prevent the need for us to open your document pouch to determine House Air Waybill (HAWB) information. This manifest should include full shipper, consignee and HAWB information, as well as pieces, weight and a complete description of the commodity being shipped.
CBP requirements may affect how a Master Air Waybill (MAWB) is filled out.
- Shipper Information - For consolidations, the name and address of the forwarder involved is sufficient. For non-consolidations, the name and address of the actual shipper should be used.
- Consignee Information - For consolidation shipments, the identity of the forwarder, container station or broker is enough. For non-consolidated shipments, the name and address of the actual consignee should be used.
When importing into the U.S., American Airlines Cargo requires advance electronic presentation of your cargo information at your first port of entry.
