Modernizing Air Cargo Operations in U.S. Airports In Reserve

Air cargo is vital part of supply chain for many companies and cities. Air cargo carries about 35% contribution in value terms of the world's cargo, only 1% in volume, yet many airports, especially in the USA, still do not have modern technology such as Cargo Community Systems, material handling systems in warehouses, and airports designed to move cargo, including e-commerce cargo, at the same speed and efficiency as baggage. Airports need to understand what are global best practices and build facilities, procedures and adapt technologies that can move air cargo operations into the modern era. Today, we still use paper airwaybills in many instances, when passenger got rid of paper tickets decades ago.
