Air Freight Volumes Indicate a Potential Improvement of the Near-Term Outlook

The latest update of global freight data collected by the International Transport Forum at the OECD through November 2014 shows that:

  • Air freight volumes in tonnes of goods moved, considered as a lead indicator, have recovered above pre-crisis peak in the United States and EU-28. 
  • Exports to BRICS and Asia remain locomotives of global growth. 
  • Rail freight volume, measured in tonne-kilometres of goods transported, slows down in China.
