Higher eCommerce demand for airfreight

Posted By Administration, Friday, July 7, 2017

 

 

According to a study, one-third of the US$3 trillion global e-commerce market is cross-border trade, which is growing faster than domestic sales. Hence, e-commerce has resulted in higher demand for airfreight. In the early days of eCommerce, shippers and consumers have two main choices of moving their parcels i.e. either through pure integrators or pure postal mail.

 

However, with higher expectations of today’s shippers and consumers, which now demand time-sensitive, door-to-door service, the logistics industry, was forced to create alternate logistics arrangements in order to unlock new markets and provide new levels of availability and reliability.

 

Some of the new logistic arrangements that come into play are airfreight to postal, airfreight to last mile delivery companies,airfreight to drones, land-air-last mile deliveries, sea-air-last mile deliveries, etc. These new ways of distributions require better planning and coordination among all the air cargo players in order to provide transparency and reliability that the customers demanded.

 

TIACA is an excellent organization which can bring all the parties in the air cargo industry together to meet such challenges.
