Baggage - cargo (things, other material values), packed for transportation and transported separately from the passenger.
When transporting by rail, luggage is called things and other valuables, transported for personal domestic needs. Such baggage is transported in a baggage car to the destination station specified in the travel document of the passenger.
In passenger air transport, the size and weight of baggage, as well as the number of pieces of baggage that accompanies a passenger, is strictly regulated by airlines based on IATA recommendations. Luggage, which the passenger takes with him on board, and does not hand over for transportation on check-in, is called hand luggage.

In the case of carriage by sea, baggage is any item (including a motor vehicle) carried under a contract for the carriage of a passenger by sea. In this case, things that are carried under contracts of sea transportation of cargo or animals are not considered as luggage.
