Frankfurt Air Cargo Forum sends optimistic signals – PART 1

Global air cargo has been on a downturn for almost 1.5 years, as evidenced by figures from IATA and quarterly results from leading airlines and logistics companies. Yet, there was no sign of wailing and gnashing of teeth at the Frankfurt Air Cargo Forum (ACCF). In addition to a few critical remarks, industry representatives and experts presented many encouraging perspectives. Not only for Frankfurt (FRA) as an air cargo location, but for the industry as a whole. Here are key takeaways. More are to come in PART 2.

ACCF: From challenge to challenge – PART 2

Exactly one year ago, Ashwin Bhat, then still CCO of Lufthansa Cargo, spoke of a post-pandemic situation and the new normal in which airfreight found itself. Today, 12 months later and in his new role as CEO of the cargo airline, he speaks of “uncertainty as being the new normal”. The industry lurches from one challenge to the next, he exclaimed during the Frankfurt-held Air Cargo Conference last week, naming inflation, consumer reluctance, and the downturn of core markets - predominantly China - as evidence of this thesis.
