Air Freight Data

Stay up-to-date with this exclusive collection of charts, which illustrate everything from Asian and European carriers' cargo traffic to freight forwarder airfreight sales.

  • Asia-Pacific Carrier Traffic, Sept. & YTD

    A surge in exports from Asian manufacturers drove September's freight demand up by 5.3 percent, year-over-year, accompanied by a rise of 4 percent in capacity. This helped nudge the freight load factor 0.8 percentage points higher to 64.1 percent -- nearly identical to the 64.2 percent load-factor average for the first nine months of the year.

  • European Carrier Traffic (FTKs)

    For the second consecutive month, intra-Europe freight traffic continued to show healthy growth, rising 8.8 percent, year-over-year, in September, following an 8.1 percent y-o-y growth in August. Long-haul and overall FTKs, however, were both down 3.8 percent and 3.3 percent, respectively, reflecting the slowdown from the Air France-KLM labor woes and the ongoing Ukraine-Russia tensions.
