The December issue of Airline Cargo Management is now online


As the year draws to a close, Airline Cargo Management presents Seabury Consulting’s expert analysis of 2017. Following a rough couple of years, the supply/demand balance is beginning to tip in the right direction, and the industry is seeing strong volumes. It seems global airline cargo revenues may finally be on the road to recovery.

Meanwhile, a global appetite for naturally-ripened produce, coupled with China’s growing middle class is driving demand for perishables. Logistics firms like Panalpina are seizing the opportunity to consolidate, with acquisitions of perishables specialists and a streamlining of the supply chain.

And lower fuel prices are allowing unit load management companies to get creative. Containers wrought from new, lightweight materials, sophisticated tracking functions, and temperature-regulating features, are all contributing to an increase in popularity in the outsourcing of ULD management.

There’s not long to go before our annual Aircraft Cabin Maintenance Conference. But don’t worry; you can still join us at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel at London Heathrow on November 28, where we’ll be joined by delegates from leading airlines and maintenance providers.

Online opportunity
As airlines bond with e-commerce platforms to more readily serve shoppers, and no slow-down in growth on the horizon, opportunities are plentiful. But the effects of this paradigm shift are wide-reaching.

Demand drivers
With its all-freighter fleet, strong charter presence, and road feeder services, Cargolux is perfectly poised to accommodate time-critical deliveries.

Cargo classroom
The e-commerce boom is creating an urgent need for new employees, while the drive towards digitisation means some may require re-training. Our experts examine the options available to them in a rapidly changing environment.
