Spring 2016

issue 12

This issue’s ‘Outlook 2016’ report explores air cargo stakeholders’ expectations for this year, going well beyond their forecasts about the general market outlook and examining their predictions more broadly in diverse areas across the business, from automation of freight booking, to the role of drones in logistics, the involvement of ‘late arrival’ disruptors such as Amazon, to the latest developments with productivity initiatives such as e-Freight and Cargo 2000.

New technology also forms a significant part of these discussions, and this is explored in even greater detail in the separate ‘Technology in the warehouse’ report.
