Emerging Aviation Issues — E-Commerce



Because 90 per cent of cross-border business-to-consumer (B2C) e-commerce is currently moved by air transport, fast and reliable air cargo services are essential to meet the expected growth of e-commerce. ICAO and the Universal Postal Union (UPU) embarked on a joint project using UN Comtrade and e-commerce data to identify and quantify logistical constraints on e-commerce activity. UN Comtrade data contains billions of records of commodity movements, including origin and destination countries, cost, insurance, mode of transport, and the type of transaction, while e-commerce records e-commerce parcel transactions by date, time, class, weight, number and origin-destination city-pair.
