Be prepared: Monsoon Season

June 4, 2019

Monsoon season in South Asia typically occurs between June to September leading to heavy rainfall. 

Monsoons typically occur in tropical areas and various atmospheric conditions influence the monsoon winds. When the summer monsoon season begins, South Asia can experience extreme rainfall that can lead to flooding in countries such as Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. 

During this time it is important for shippers to correctly pack their cargo to safeguard against their shipments getting wet and damaged. Handling agents will avoid accepting shipments that are incorrectly packed. 

How can I protect my cargo? 

Airlines suggest a number of ways in which you can protect your cargo from damage from the heavy rainfall: 

  • All cargo should be securely packaged, shrink wrapped is preferable, to avoid damage to the consignment from the heavy rain. 
  • Labelling should be clear on both sides of the inside of the packages to ensure visibility of key information.
