Even though we have all the data for cargo operations, we still need to figure out how the revenue model would work. The reason is that cargo operations are different from passenger operations in the way that it often only goes from A to B, but not necessarily in the other direction.
You should not expect cargo from us soon, sorry

I worked at UPS and FedEX and usually on a pallet theres is about $50,000-$200,000 per pallet depending on what is in there. Ranges from clothes, medical supplies, electronics, wine, windows, furniture. This stuff comes down everyday as they have to be sent out from the manufacturer. Big supplies like one piece of medical equipment will be one pallet because it is very big and heavy. Medical equipment can range from $25,000 & up. Furniture is big and 2 sofas in 1 pallet. Per plane there is $80,000 or more of merchandise ready to go. They ship a lot of flowers in boxes the size of 12"x30".

This reddit post might help, not sure.
