AIR CARGO: SHIPPER DEMAND INCREASES; A SPECIAL TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT SURVEY
The article notes that major expansion in aircargo has occurred in recent years and that further growth can be expected in the future. Over 28 percent of reporting firms ship in excess of 1 million pounds by air annually. Overall average yearly volume per shipper is 4,867,824 pounds. The regularity of air movement is also impressive; almost 70% of large firms make daily shipments, while an additional 15.3% tender airfreight on a weekly basis. The role of seasonality is noted to have diminished. There is an increasing turn to airfreight in the international field. Recent experience and future shipper planning suggests that air cargo may be entering the long-awaited takeoff.
