Are there types of cargo that cannot be shipped via air freight?

There's practically no kind or volume of cargo that cannot be shipped via air freight especially when you want it delivered fast.

Sea and other methods are used more commonly for bigger items only because people do not mind forgoing speed as an opportunity cost for a lesser amount of money spent.

However, if you do not mind paying a little bit more when deadlines are in place, airfreight can deliver any kind of shipment in the shortest possible time.
