Helping air freight deliver
While the FTA recognises global over-capacity too much air freight space chasing too few goods – the UK has a different problem. Much to the frustration of FTA members and the sector at large, U.K airport capacity is a limiting factor for UK importers and exporters, air freight companies and the British economy.
FTA research report ‘Sky High Value’ revealed how expansion of Heathrow airport is the correct decision for air freight operators, their customers, and British business. FTA provides a platform for UK air freight suppliers and users to influence their policy positions through their British Shippers' Council. FTA also administers the Global Shippers' Forum, an international organisation for national and regional shippers’ organisations from across the world.
