Explains how the aviation logistics industry operates; it examines different product sectors used by air freight and how carriers are responding to market demands with new methods and technologies.
Aviation Logistics looks at the function of the air cargo business and its role in global supply chains and logistics. As global economies are constantly evolving, the supply chain business with its transport partners must be proactive for the future. Technology and its resulting efficiency and transparency are therefore a central part of this book. Aviation Logistics examines how carriers are coming up with new methods and technologies to improve ground handling and road transport, traceability systems and barcoding, security and screening, and safe delivery of perishable items (such as in the pharmaceutical and medical sectors).
Endorsed by The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA), Aviation Logistics is supplemented with case studies and contributions from a team of experts including Oliver Evans and Stan Wraight, both industry experts.
The book features online resources including a Freighter Directory.
Aviation Logistics is a neatly put together study of the past, present, and future of air cargo and transport. Sales adheres to all of the challenges he lays out for the industry as a whole - namely, he integrates coverage of other modes of transportation as appropriate rather than limiting his discussion to the mode he knows best.
