Air freight has, until recently, received little coverage in the climate change debate as the air passenger market has been targeted by media and environmentalists. Phenomenal growth rates contributed to a 140% increase in air freight between 1992 and 2002, with growth in world freight tonne-kilometres outstripping growth in world GDP. Forecasts predict a 4% and 6% growth in the tonne kilometres performed for 2007 and 2008. A considerable share of this growth has been attributed to a modal shift from sea transport to air. In particular, the express air freight market is likely to experience significant growth through integrators like DHL or FedEx.
