“2021 saw a continuation of high volume levels, but as business-to-business traffic returned, yields have improved. In 2022, volumes have started to drop but yields have remained high due to the surge in business-to-business activity.”

Cargo Facts Consulting (CFC), a leading global consultancy to the air logistics industry and a sister venture of industry publication Cargo Facts, today released its latest report which details the current state of the air express business, its evolution over the last decade, and a forecast of what lies ahead.

The 4th edition of Air Express Market Outlook provides a historical overview and five-year growth forecast of key international and domestic air express markets. The report analyzes the performance, positioning, and strategies of key global and regional express operators including Aramex, Blue Dart, DHL Express, FedEx, SF Express, and UPS in the light of emerging competition from e-commerce platforms and postal companies.

Given that almost two-thirds of the world’s freighter fleet is operated by or for express companies, the Air Express Market Outlook also analyzes the medium- to long-term outlook for aircraft demand and subcontracted flying services. The report grants access to an interactive map that expands on topics such as global hub distribution and express air networks.

“Over the past 24 months, all express carriers have adapted quickly to handle the pandemic-driven surge in business-to-consumer shipments. Sixty-three percent of express volumes in 2021 were related to online shopping — up from just under 50% in 2019,” said CFC Director Guillermo Ochovo. “2021 saw a continuation of high volume levels, but as business-to-business traffic returned, yields have improved. In 2022, volumes have started to drop but yields have remained high due to the surge in business-to-business activity.”

The Air Express Market Outlook also includes interactive tools that allow users to analyze and understand the spatial dimensions of different aspects of the express logistics business. To learn more or to order the report, visit CFCInsights.com.
