Key Takeaways: The Air Freight Market

  • Eric Kulisch is the Supply Chain and Air Cargo Editor at FreightWaves, the leading freight intelligence provider, offering current digital intelligence and context to the freight community on a central platform. 
  • In the podcast interview, Joe and Eric discuss the air freight market and the impacts of COVID, port congestion, and the supply chain crisis.
  • Traditionally, air freight moves about 1% of the total freight volume and that freight accounts for about 33% of the value, which means the stuff being moved by air is typically smaller, and more valuable like mobile phones, computer chips, medicines, fashion goods, etc.
  • During the pandemic, air freight became even more important as the vaccines were shipped worldwide. While moving freight by ocean is more cost effective, when the product is perishable and the need is urgent, air freight is utilized.
  • As a result of the pandemic there was less passenger travel, but significantly more air cargo so airlines modified (removed seats) to move more freight. Planes that can be modified to move either air cargo or passengers are called preighters.
  • The supply chain crisis, port congestion, trucker protests, ecommerce sales growth, etc. caused a greater need for air freight services, especially expediting.
