EFFECTS OF TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENT ON AIR CARGO CENTRE PLANNING

Planning of cargo facilities depends on important variables such as demand forecasts, technological progress, design techniques and the existing policy directives. This paper assesses the effects of an evolving technological environment on the other basic planning considerations. The nature of the planning process is described and related to a forecasted technological scenario for major Canadian airports in 1990. The impact of planning and operational problems on the substance and scope of cargo related government policy is examined within the context of an actual policy review program.
