Air cargo ex­pen­sive than ship­ping

Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor, Com­bined Lo­gis­tics So­lu­tions, shares, “Co­or­di­nat­ing the world­wide move­ment of time-sen­si­tive freight, from busi­ness doc­u­ments to gar­ments to fresh flow­ers, is a chal­leng­ing and com­plex task. Air cargo com­pa­nies gain their com­pet­i­tive edge from tech­nol­ogy in­no­va­tion. They pi­o­neered the gen­er­a­tion and use of large data­bases that can be queried at will to mon­i­tor each of the mil­lions of items that a large Air Freight com­pany may have in tran­sit at any mo­ment. A vi­tal part of the prob­lem is to en­sure that in­ter­modal com­mu­ni­ca­tion is ef­fi­cient (Air Trans­port As­so­ci­a­tion 2002).” He ex­plains, “There are three main types of op­er­a­tion, reg­u­lar ser­vice, cargo ser­vice, char­ter op­er­a­tions. The de­ter­min­ing fac­tors for many busi­ness and in­di­vid­u­als are time sen­si­tiv­ity, the fragility of the goods in­volved and the bud­get. While other forms of ship­ping are slow and cost ef­fi­cient, air cargo is more ex­pen­sive given its ex­pe­di­ency.”
