The December issue of Airline Cargo Management is now online


Stay on top of all the latest industry news and market developments this winter with the December issue of Airline Cargo Management.

Middle Eastern airlines topped the world cargo growth table for the first time in more than two years this summer, according to IATA figures. In this issue we look at how these major hubs and their base carriers are facilitating the transit of growing volumes of freight.

Meanwhile, after several months of trials and audits, Air Canada became the first airline to obtain IATA's CEIV Live Animals certification, blazing a trail on the way to broad standards for the transportation of animals.

And, we visit Vallair’s fully functional MRO facility in Montpellier, France, where they provide integrated support for mature aircraft across various business units, including trading and leasing, aircraft teardown, aircraft MRO, engines, aerostructures, paintings and cargo conversions.

Change is in the air
The transportation and logistics industry are currently facing unprecedented change, as digitalisation, operating models and customer expectations evolve. We analyse both the risks and the opportunities.

Handle with care
ULD CARE has 124 members representing 30 airlines, six ULD leasing and management companies and 23 associated service providers. We find out what happened when they all met in early October to discuss everything involving Unit Load Devices.

Signs of the time
Significant changes in manufacturing supply chains have fuelled steady development in air cargo volumes on Asian routes. Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals has been witnessing growth in intra-Asian traffic for some time, with markets including Vietnam and Laos, trending above global levels, according to Executive Director Vivien Lau.

Regional connections
In August, Hawaiian Airlines returned to all-cargo operations with its new ATR-72 freighters headed for neighbouring islands to bring disaster relief to communities affected by storms and lava flow. With the spotlight now back on regional freighters, finding enough pilots is a concern.
