With the AKE being the most widely used container in the air cargo business, TFI has over the years developed a formidable range of this vital air cargo transport tool.

Our standard products are no-nonsense aluminum units: rugged, easy to use with long service life.  These come in both metal or canvas door variations.

The TUFFlight composite AKE range is the embodiment of lightweight toughness that weight sensitive carriers demand. Starting at a weight of 62 Kg, this container provides just enough stiffness to avoid any sagging or bulging of panels, yet at the same time possesses an exceptional impact resistance. Also in our lightweight range is our lightweight aluminum AKE with a starting weight of 66 kg.
