CAAS Summer 2024 Cover

Summer 2024

It’s been another extraordinary few months for the air freight sector and logistics more broadly, with the attacks on container shipping in the Red Sea continuing to disrupt supply chains, causing conversion of some sea freight to air cargo and sea-air traffic, and putting significant pressure on air cargo capacity, infrastructure and pricing in some markets. Alongside this, we’ve seen demand for air freight capacity from the e-commerce sector continue to build, especially from parts of southern China. As highlighted in the article on page 56, McKinsey estimates that as much as 70% of air cargo from southern China’s Greater Bay Area is e-commerce traffic. McKinsey’s Ludwig Hausmann pointed out that one single new e-commerce shipper – Temu – now accounts for 7% of global cross-border e-commerce orders, most of which are shipped by air, compared with 0% in 2022. He highlights that there is no single cargo airline that has 7% market share on a global scale.
In the interview article on page 4, Cathay Cargo’s Tom Owen estimates that around 50-60% of the GBA-origin cargo Cathay currently flies is e-commerce generated, with Cathay particularly well positioned to capitalise on the extraordinary growth in cross-border e-commerce thanks to its location in Hong Kong.
