Aviation Logistics is a new approach to explain the function of the air cargo business and its role in global supply chains. Michael Sales analyses the close relationship between the rapidly evolving global logistics industry and the aviation industry to achieve this smooth and efficient conveyance of goods. 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. Examining different sectors of products used by air freight, Michael Sales 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). Recommended by TIACA, the book is supplemented with case studies and contributions from a team of experts including Stan Wraight, who has over 40 years of industry experience gained through both senior management and board level positions at KLM Cargo, Atlas Air and AirBridge Cargo/Volga-Dnepr.
