GENEVA – The International Air Transport Association (IATA) said on Wednesday (2/5/2018) that the global air cargo market showed that demand in March was five percentage points lower than February’s results, and is the slowest growth rate in 22 months.
IATA said the sharp growth slowdown was mainly due to the end of the “restocking” cycle, in which companies quickly increased their inventories to meet unexpected high demand and warned that trade protectionist measures could have an effect later on.
The weakening of global trade is also evident, IATA said.
“It’s normal that growth is slowing down at the end of the restocking cycle.It’s definitely been happening.to the future we remain optimistic that air cargo demand will grow 4-5 percent this year, but there are clearly some challenges,” said Alexandre de Juniac, Director General and CEO IATA.

JAKARTA – The air cargo letter (SMU) is still the largest cost component for the express delivery business.
Managing Director of PT Citra Van Titipan Kilat (Tiki) Tomy Sofhian said that in the goods delivery cycle from the starting point to the end there are nodes that incur costs such as courier fees, sorting, high school, until delivery.
SMU is necessary because in the express delivery business that requires speed, air transport is always the main choice.
“SMU is one of the biggest cost contributors, because at every point there is cost and the biggest one is in the center [the airport],” he said on Sunday (15/10/2017.
Therefore, in order to more cost efficient Tiki boost the volume of goods delivery. The reason, the air cargo price depends on the volume. The bigger the volume then the cheaper the price.
Air freight is a perfect solution for transporting low volume and high value shipments. This type of transport is a practical choice for goods of all shapes and sizes, such as manufacturing machinery, automobiles, furniture, appliances and electronics.
Here are six benefits of using air freight:
Fast and efficient method
When you are looking to have goods shipped quickly to another destination, air freight is able to provide the best possible solution, and is significantly faster than road transport or sea freight.
Whatever you might be looking to ship, it’s important to go beyond simply searching ‘freight forwarders Bali’ and actually thinking through what each company can offer you at what costs. Finding the best forwarder will ensure you the best fit for your requirements, but where do you start when it comes to searching?
Work out what you need.
Working out what you need from a company before you go searching will make your search a lot easier. Try and determine to the best of your ability what type of transport you will need, which service or delivery type you might need, and just how much you plan to ship. Working this all out, or forming the questions you need to ask before you contact a forwarder can save time and keep the whole process far more efficient – and often get you better deals!
If you want to ship goods to a customer in another country or even another continent quickly, then air travel is the way forwards, with only very heavy goods being forced to be sent by road or sea.
Yet it is not always simple to send a cargo abroad by air. Firstly there are the local export laws that you will have to comply with, for example you cannot export key works of art out of the country without an export licence, nor as another example may you export certain forms of technology such as military related electronics.
However when sending a cargo abroad by air you may not even know that it is a restricted item that will not be carried by certain airlines, the problem occurs when, whilst you may have done some research and find that the airline shipping it from your country is fine to carry your cargo, you may not realise that this is only one part of the puzzle. The next airline in the delivery chain may not be prepared to take your goods, either due to their own regulations or country specific regulations.
A freight forwarder is an agent that arranges logistics and organises the transport operations for the shipments of consignments globally for companies or individuals. A freight forwarder is often not directly responsible for the cargo itself, but instead uses their specialist knowledge to arrange several haulage or transport companies and global shipping lines to transport the freight from A to B. Typical modes of transport a freight forwarder may use include ship, plane, truck or train transport. When planning to use a freight forwarder, there are several factors you should take into consideration before making your choice.
Air freight appears to be under a greater ‘threat’ for traditional forwarders than sea freight, where only half of the respondents to the survey thought traditional forwarders would lose market share.
The reason, says Ti, is the growth of the integrators in recent years and Amazon’s highly publicised shift into air freight. It could also be, of course, that despite far lower volumes, air freight makes up some 52% of the forwarding share in monetary terms.
