SUMMARY

This report on E-Commerce and air cargo explains that online retail sales increase on an annual basis much faster than traditional shop-based sales. 

The fast-growing cross-border e-commerce market is considered as a key growth driver, the paper notes. Online shopping is a future growth driver for the air cargo sector, it adds, as E-Commerce increases significantly the demand for parcel delivery services across the globe. 

The report analyses the massive impact of online shopping on the logistics chain and how it affects manufacturers and retailers. These need to reach online shoppers as quickly as possible in a cost-efficient way. On the other hand, it is also important to offer customers free returns which represent an expensive cost for online retailers.

This paper describes the air cargo industry action plan about E-Commerce which includes strengthening safety and security for air cargo and airmail, simplifying processes and adopting new technologies.
