Risk Assessment of Dangerous Goods in Airfreights

The purpose of this study is to assess the risk of dangerous goods in air cargo transportation. Based on the relevant literature, the risk factors (RFs) of dangerous goods in airfreight operations were first investigated. A revised risk matrix based on a fuzzy AHP model was then proposed to assess those RFs. Finally, to validate the research model, the airfreight operations of dangerous goods in Taiwan was empirically investigated. The results can provide practical information for the airfreight operators to improve the safety performance of dangerous good airfreights. Further, the revised risk matrix can provide methodological reference for risk assessment research.
