The IATA air freight forecast for 2018 to 2022 suggests that the increasing importance of areas such as e-commerce and pharmaceuticals are helping air freight growth to decouple from global goods trade which will further lead to significant FTK outperformance. Digitization is the new buzzword in the industry and there has been an evident shift in the industry digitizing their offerings. Whether it be the Indian Government’s recent changes in air cargo policy enabling smooth export and import of goods, and transforming India into a chosen transit cargo hub to-and-from other parts of the world or simply doing away with paper correspondences for air freight and making e-AWB mandatory, digital transformation is happening for real.
