TO PROPERLY PLAN FOR MASS AIR CARGO TRANSPORTATION, THE FUTURE PERSPECTIVE MUST BE BROADENED TO COVER MORE THAN JUST THE AIRPORT FACILITIES. THE BASIC PROBLEM AREAS AND THE EFFICIENCY LEVELS MUST BE DEFINED. HAVING UNCOVERED THESE ELEMENTS OF INFLUENCE, THEY MUST BE DISSECTED, ANALYZED AND PROJECTED TO DETERMINE THE DEGREE OF INFLUENCE TEN YEARS HENCE. INNOVATIONS ARE ON THE HORIZON. KNOWING THE TRUE IMPACT THAT THESE INNOVATIONS WILL HAVE ON KEY ELEMENTS OF AIRFREIGHT DISTRIBUTION, WILL AFFECT THE DEGREE OF AIRFREIGHT PENETRATION IN THE NATIONAL DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM. THIS PAPER IS INTENDED TO GIVE A BROAD PREVIEW OF THREE OF THESE BASIC ELEMENTS: THE AIRCRAFT, THE CONTAINER SYSTEM, AND THE TERMINAL SYSTEM. /SAE/
