Air Cargo – a vital element of global supply chains

‘Aircraft carry around 2% of international trade by volume, but around 40% by value’ - FedEx chief operating officer Michael Ducker.

Air Cargo is an integral part of many manufacturers’ and retailers’ global supply chains, allowing companies in a range of sectors to operate in lean inventory environments.

Air cargo operations allow fast, frequent and predictable transit between more and more parts of the world as an increasing number of companies out-source to remote locations. Decreasing product cycles for high value, high tech goods have made fast delivery to market essential. Perishable commodities such as foodstuffs or flowers can be delivered into markets on the opposite side of the world in perfect condition. Periodicals can be delivered to readers worldwide while still current. Local industries have become global traders and consumers can enjoy goods from any part of the world.

In this respect the Air Cargo sector has played an essential, although understated, role in the development of the global economy. Its continued development is key to the on-going success of globalisation.
