Posted on 8 May 2018


The June issue of Airline Cargo Management is now online


There has been a surge in demand for CEIV in relation to transporting temperature sensitive pharmaceuticals. With that, the air cargo industry is now calling for higher standards. We take a closer look at the active role Brussels Airport played in the creation and implementation of CEIV pharma.


Last year, the Caribbean was devastated by the effects of several hurricanes. To support, urgent freight charters were crucial in delivering relief aid. In contexts such as these, it is essential to ensure effective and rapid delivery of goods and services so that the people affected receive the assistance they require as fast as possible. We investigate the logistics behind these operations.


Reporting from Toulouse, we introduce the new Beluga XL that is due to fly this summer. With changes to the aircraft intended to aid with increased production rates and A350 wings, we examine how the aircraft has evolved to provide this greater capacity.

The bigger, the better
We discuss how Volga-Dnepr airlines, one of the key players in the transportation of outsize cargo has responded to the challenging transportations in industries such as oil and aviation. Through its unique concept, coined ‘cargo supermarket’, nothing is too big to be moved.


Getting ready for new-gen freighters
Leasing is now becoming a more viable option as the freighter conversion market is at full speed. With this comes a new generation of freighters entering the market, quickly following the delivery of the first B737-700s to Alaska Airlines.

Gateway to Africa 
With Africa boasting the fastest growth rate of all regions this year, the investment and development of infrastructure must be fast-tracked to ensure that maximise's the region's economic growth.


A welcome return
Transpacific trade lanes have seen an ongoing surge in demand with a 10% growth in air cargo volumes during 2017. This boost in transpacific demand has brought new life to the freighter sector, but where do airports fit in? We discuss the need for better infrastructure and the challenge that airports are now facing to act strategically.
