Air Cargo makes it happen!

The Value of Air Cargo


Air cargo is a trade facilitator that contributes to the global economic development and creates millions of jobs. The global economy depends on the ability to deliver high quality products at competitive prices to consumers worldwide.

Air cargo transports over US$6.4 trillion worth of goods. This is approximately 35% of world trade by value. The sector itself generates nearly $70 billion every year and is an important component of the aviation industry which collectively supports 57 million jobs worldwide.

Consumer preferences change ever more rapidly so retailers carry fewer inventories to avoid costly write-offs as product life cycles become ever shorter. Air cargo is therefore an intricate component of the consumer supply chain ensuring we have continual access to quality and choice.

Because of efficient supply chain solutions, priority air freight shipments can be picked up in the morning in Europe and delivered the next day to consignees in North America. Tens of thousands of jobs in developing nations are supporting the production of fresh fruits and vegetables so consumers throughout the world can benefit from naturally grown produce.

Innovative, creative, reliable, efficient, safe, secure and necessary, this is today’s air cargo business; your partner for our modern way of life.
