Perishable Cargo Regulations (PCR)

cargo-perishable ​The Perishable Cargo Regulations (PCR) is the leader in the efficient and adequate shipping of time sensitive goods.​

The Global Standard for Remaining Fresh in the Air

Perishable goods (such as fruits, flowers and vegetables) were among the first commodities carried by air. These kinds of items deteriorate with time or exposition to adverse temperature and humidity. That's where Perishable Cargo Regulations come in.
 
The PCR is an essential reference guide for all parties involved in the packaging and handling of temperature sensitive products. The expertise of major airlines and the scientific data supplied by research institutions was essential to develop this manual, endorsed by the IATA Live Animals and Perishables Board (LAPB).
 
The PCR provides you access to the most current and efficient practices for your perishable cargo operations and an integral tool to achieve cost savings and avoiding delays by guaranteeing your shipments are problem-free and compliant with international or local regulations. The PCR includes:  
  • Up-to-date airline and government requirements pertaining to the transport of perishable cargo
  • Requirements on handling, marking & labeling
  • Necessary packaging requirements
  • Information on the necessary documentation required when transporting perishable cargo
  • A comprehensive classification of 100’s of perishable commodities
Whether you are a shipper, a freight forwarder, an airline, or shipper, the PCR is your essential guide for the for optimizing your time sensitive supply chain.
