ECONOMIC NECESSITY OF VIABLE DOOR TO DOOR AIR CARGO SERVICE

AIR FREIGHT IS AND WILL CONTINUE TO BE A SMALL SHIPMENT BUSINESS. THE RAPID INCREASE IN THE AMOUNT OF FREIGHT CARRIED HAS INDUCED A STATE APPROACHING CHAOS ON THE GROUND. THE RESULT IS DELAY, LOSSES, AND DAMAGE TO SHIPMENTS. THE AIR CARGO INDUSTRY MUST NOW DEVELOP A SOPHISTICATED DOOR TO DOOR CAPABILITY OFFERING IMPROVED SERVICE AND LOWER COSTS TO THE USER. SATELLITE AIR FREIGHT DEPOTS, WITH PERHAPS SEVERAL AIRLINES IN A SINGLE BUILDING, MUST BE DEVELOPED IN MAJOR COMMERCIAL AREAS. DOOR TO DOOR CONTAINER USAGE, AT PRESENT FALTERING, SHOULD BE ENCOURAGED. A NEW RATING SYSTEM, WITH DOOR TO DOOR PRICES THAT TAPER WITH DISTANCES, SHOULD BE DEVISED. /SAE/
