CARRIAGE OF COMMERCIAL CARGO
Mixed RS and Commercial Loads (Mixed Loads). The carriage of commercial cargo i.e. non RS cargo is strictly prohibited when operating on a RS (NAG) call sign. Operators assigned a RS (NAG) call sign to meet a RS air cargo contract are to ensure no commercial freight is loaded to an aircraft arriving into Afghanistan using a RS (NAG) call sign. Spot checks of aircraft are undertaken at RS airfields.
Shared RS Loads for Different RS Contracts (Shared Load). The sharing of an aircraft between contributing Nations for different contracts is allowed. Thus one Nation contracting an aircraft can share spare capacity with another RS Nation, this is termed as a Shared Load. Only RS freight can be carried, no civilian commercial freight is to be carried. The Nation with the majority of freight onboard is to assign the RS call sign.
Transit load. An AC carrying RS freight but with freight in transit which is NOT to be offloaded in Afghanistan. Caveats apply: - seperate set of documents for transit cargo; - No Dangerous Goods (DG) - No prohibited/sanctioned cargo
