Air and sea freight market trends
It is a dynamic market; the global volume of airfreight continues to increase rapidly with freight volumes reaching 66.2 million metric tons in 2021. It has been reported that the Covid-19 pandemic is believed to have speeded up the global transition to e-commerce (by as many as five years, according to IBM) and thereby increased the volume of goods requiring transportation. Despite recent challenges and localized lockdown in the far east affecting both air and seafreight demand continues to increase.
Comment from Miles O’Donnell, Europa Air & Sea National Sales Manager
“We’re delighted to recognise the abilities of both Jas and Tom with their promotions to these new important roles, which are much needed as we continue to grow our air and sea services across the UK. Both are hugely talented individuals who demonstrate huge potential, and we’d like to congratulate them on their new roles.”
