Boeing 767-300F: The Preferred Solution for the Medium-Widebody Freighter Market
The Boeing 767 Freighter was derived from the 767-300ER passenger airplane. It was launched in January 1993, and entered service in October 1995.
The main deck of the 767 Freighter can accommodate up to 24 pallets, each measuring 88 inches by 125 inches (223.5 cm by 317.5 cm) at the base.
- Total main deck container volume is 11,884 cubic feet (336.6 cubic m)
- The lower hold can accommodate seven pallets, two LD-2 containers, plus bulk. Total lower hold volume is 3,585 cubic feet (101.6 cubic m).
- These provide a combined maximum payload capability of 15,469 cubic feet (438.2 cubic m).
i5179 When carrying the 58-tons (52.7 tonnes) maximum payload, the 767 Freighter has a range of 3,225 nautical miles (6,025 km).
The 767 Freighter keeps trip costs to a minimum with its two-person flight deck and twin high-bypass-ratio engines offering excellent fuel economy. This contrasts to older cargo-carrying airplanes, such as 707s and DC-8s, which have three-person flight crews and are powered by four engines.
Type commonality with the 757 Freighter further reduces operating and training costs for carriers that choose to operate both models.
All the advancements in avionics, aerodynamics, materials and propulsion that were developed for the passenger version of the 767 are incorporated in the freighter.
