Transport and Covid-19: responses and resources

Air Freight Volumes Increase Since the Second Quarter of 2016

The latest update of global freight data collected by the International Transport Forum at the OECD through July 2017 shows that:

  • International trade related air freight volumes move back above the pre-crisis level of June 2008 both in the EU area and in the Unites States.
  • Exports to BRICS and Asia remain the locomotives for growth.
  • Surface freight volumes, measured in tonne-kilometres of goods transported, show signs of slowing down in the EU while recover in China.
