Air Cargo is a US$50 billion business that transports 35% of the value of goods traded internationally and a critical part
of the airline business which, as a whole, is the US$490 billion heart of a value chain that supports 32 million jobs and US$3.5 trillion of economic
activity. It is an important industry that is critical to global business.
The majority of air cargo is moved on passenger aircraft with freight loaded in containers and carried,
like baggage, in under-floor holds. Additionally, destinations with high volumes of cargo are served by freighters
or ‘cargo only’ aircraft. In some circumstances an entire aircraft may be chartered to move a special cargo project.
Historically air freight was mostly used for very urgent high-value or perishable goods.
Nowadays the use of air cargo routinely forms part of distribution patterns,
and typical examples of high demand and high value goods would include personal computers, mobile phones,
and other high technology products.
Other commodities typically moved by air are fresh fruit and vegetables, due to their perishable nature,
precious stones and metals, fashion goods and all kinds of urgent spare parts.
