DUBAI , UAE, August 11 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the Boeing Company's World Air Cargo Forecast (WACF), "rising jet fuel prices and distress in the financial sector dampened world air cargo growth in 2007 and 2008. However, over the next 20 years, world air cargo traffic will triple compared to current levels."
The report goes on to say that "World air cargo traffic will expand at an average annual rate of 5.8% for the next two decades, tripling current traffic levels. Markets connecting developing economies to established economies will either approximate or exceed the average world growth rate."
Companies in various industry sectors will be looking to penetrate these emerging markets, many of which are located in high-risk or remote areas, such as: Libya , former Soviet Republics, the Arctic, Alaska , Africa and the Americas and will require a variety of logistical cargo project services and cargo air charters .
Logistical projects require global shipments with particular requirements, such as: heavy transports, outsized cargo, and cargo with time sensitive or security constraints to remote and difficult to access locations; will consequently contribute to the estimated growth in air cargo traffic.
