Global air cargo volumes increased by 2% in October, according to figures from analyst, WorldACD.
This is in line with the 2% growth in airfreight demand recorded by the International Air Transport Association (Iata) for September this year
The WorldACD data shows that in terms of volumes, Asia Pacific was the best performing region in October with export growth of 4.2% and imports of 2.7%; for Europe, the corresponding percentages were 0.5% and 2.7%, and for Middle East and South Asia there was an improvement of 3.4% & 0.1%.
"In the other areas, the picture was mixed: Africa and North America grew in incoming but contracted in outgoing traffic, whilst Central and South America showed the opposite trend,” said a WorldACD spokesperson.
