    Long-haul routes continue to push airfreight volumes up at Gatwick Airport, with year-on-year growth of 25.6 per cent in November.

    The airport located to the south of London handled 10,175 tonnes in November 2017 compared to 8,099 tonnes the previous year, having established long-haul routes to markets including Asia, with destinations including Hong Kong and Tianjin.

    On a rolling 12-month basis from December 2016, cargo volumes are up 22.6 per cent to 94,571 tonnes.

    Gatwick Airport chief executive officer, Stewart Wingate says: “This year five new long-haul connections have started, Singapore, Seattle, Denver, Kigali and Taipei, further strengthening Gatwick’s global connectivity.”

    “Connectivity which is set to further increase 2018 with new connections to Austin, Chicago and Buenos Aires beginning in just the first quarter alone.”

    He says this further strengthens the case for a second runway at Gatwick, saying: “For both our local region and the whole country Gatwick is set to play an increased global role for as we grow.”

    “We’re ready and prepared to build our financeable and deliverable second runway scheme so that Britain can reap the benefits of greater global connectivity faster.”

    A new chilled airside perishables centre is set to open at Heathrow Airport on Sandringham Road next year.

    The new centre is being developed by Matthew Rye and Gav Singh of Airport Perishables Handling (APH) and operations at the 25,000sq ft facility are expected to begin in the second quarter of 2018.

    APH said it would offer a ground handling solution for perishable produce that would “improve service levels, temperature integrity and speed to market”.

    Rye said: “The APH operation will be managed 24/7 through a secured and temperature controlled facility, designed to handle export, import and transhipment perishable cargo, ideally located with full flexibility to handle dynamic volumes.

    “This will be further enhanced by ramp delivery and collection services with final mile delivery allowing APH to offer a one stop shop solution.”

    Rye added that speed of service and temperature integrity is a fundamental part of the centre’s offering, especially given the delays experienced around the infamous Horseshoe area of Heathrow Airport.

    APH said that being based in Sandringham Road on the southern perimeter of the airport would allow freight forwarders to “focus on their end customer by making product available quicker and help to reduce food waste in the supply chain”.

    Rye added:  “We will be looking to deliver to the local importing agents within 90 to 120 minutes of produce arriving at our back door with temperature integrity maintained whilst product is in our care and control both in the facility and on our fleet.

    “We have spent a lot of time talking to the importing agents and cargo airlines to understand their challenges and constraints at Heathrow and they are all seeking a fit for purpose perishable handling solution, somewhere the product is kept cool, especially when there are unexpected problems and/or delays.

    “Last year, for example, a temperature of 34.9 degrees Celsius was recorded at Heathrow airport and perishable products were being stored in ambient warehouses.”

    Rye acknowledged that margins in perishables could be tight but added that the service would be cost neutral because of the time savings and reduction in waste it would be able to offer.

    “Using our-pay-as-you-go delivery service will allow agents to better utilise own vehicles for onward distribution and avoid (or reduce) use of sub-contractors, and there will be other tangible benefits such as a reduction in driver non-productive time,” Rye said.

    “There are certain exporters from the US that currently avoid Heathrow during certain seasons. They would rather truck in from Amsterdam to avoid the cost, collection delays and lack of temperature control.”

    Heathrow head of cargo Nick Platts said: “The opening of a dedicated perishable handling facility at Heathrow is fantastic news and will provide UK trade with the opportunity to grow.

    “Heathrow called for a dedicated perishable centre in its 2015 Cargo Strategy so it’s great to see this facility coming on-line. Heathrow’s Cargo Team has been working with Matthew and Gav some of the setup issues and will continue to look for ways in which Heathrow can support them.”

    In the meantime, the company is concentrating on developing the facility, which needs to be converted to a chilled warehouse supported by specialist handling equipment.

    Turkish Airlines has taken delivery of its first Boeing 777 Freighter – the first of two 777Fs it has on order and set to receive this year.

    Turkish Airlines chairman of the board and executive committee, İlker Aycı says delivery of the 777F is a milestone event in the carrier’s cargo business.

    He adds: “As a prominent sub-brand of Turkish Airlines, Turkish Cargo increased its freighter destinations served from 55 to 73 from the beginning of this year, reaching to approximately 1 million tonnes of cargo with 29 per cent increase compared to the previous year same period. It is surely beyond doubt that this a remarkable success.

    “We’re sure that this significant delivery which will bring great value to our rapidly growing cargo operations will also enable our leading sub-brand to further compete, expand and reach new short and long-range destinations from our hub in Istanbul.”

    Boeing Commercial Airplanes senior vice president of sales for the Middle East, Turkey, Russia, Central Asia and Africa, Marty Bentrott says: “This aircraft’s range capability, combined with its enhanced cargo capacity, makes it a perfect airplane for Turkish Airlines to continue to profitably grow its global cargo service.”

    The 777F – the world’s longest-range twin-engine freighter, is based on the technologically advanced 777-200LR (Longer Range) passenger aircraft and can fly 4,900 nautical miles (9,070 kilometers) with a full payload of 112 tons (102 metric tonnes or 102,000 kg).

    Freighters have been arriving into Christchurch Airport – signalling the start of the key export season and also highlighting the valuable contribution local producers and exporters make to the local economy.

    Tasman Cargo Airlines National manager, Gerry Bray says the company’s Boeing 757 Freighter came into Christchurch last Sunday, bringing a variety of goods to the South Island.

    He says it left with a range of high value fresh produce bound for Auckland, Sydney and beyond. “The B757F has a payload capability of 32,000kgs and the aircraft moved nearly 24,000kgs of Sydney-bound general and perishable cargo on the first service,” he adds.

    “The charter flight operated we operated last weekend was the first of many we hope to operate over the coming summer months,” he says. “The aircraft will visit Christchurch at least weekly through December.

    “It signals the start of the South Island’s peak perishables export production season, with air freight in high demand for all primary producers from dairy, to fresh meat, to stone fruit and more,” he adds.

    Christchurch Airport’s chief aeronautical and commercial officer, Justin Watson, says in the year ending June 2017, more than 30,000 tonnes of airfreight transited through the airport.

    “Indications already suggest a bumper season of South Island exports,” he says. “Our international airline partners, including Air New Zealand, Singapore Airlines, Qantas, China Southern Airlines, Emirates and Cathay Pacific, are also taking freight out every day to some of the world’s leading hubs, such as Sydney, Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai and Guangzhou.

    “We anticipate a repeat of peak demand for high quality South Island produce for Chinese New Year, with extra flights this year taking cherries, chilled meat and live crayfish, among other things, to dinner tables across Asia.”

    The latest global air cargo figures as reported by 75 airlines to air cargo industry analyst WorldACD has shown a strong month.

    WorldACD says it confirms what followers of the industry had noticed already: the month of October 2017 was special.

    Monthly volumes were higher than ever, whilst revenues (when measured in EUR) peaked as well, although revenues measured in USD did not reach the heights scaled in the October months of the years 2010 – 2014.

    The analyst says it should be noted that oil prices in that period were almost twice as high as they are today and with the recovery under way for more than a year now, the 10 per cent increases seen earlier this year are now behind the industry.

    It adds: “However, for the 14th month in succession, the industry showed a year-over-year (YoY) growth well above five per cent, easily outpacing the growth in world trade. And the records set in October are almost certain to be broken when November-figures will be in.

    “Worldwide volumes in October 2017 increased by 6.9 per cent YOY. This figure, impressive in itself after the strong October 2016 performance, was dwarfed by a YOY revenue growth (in USD) of 20.5 per cent.

    “This very strong showing was driven in particular by the following factors: (1) an impressive yield growth from Europe and the Middle East & South Asia, in particular from India, (2) high volume growth from Europe, from and to North America, and to Central & South America; and (3) higher fuel cost factored into the revenues.”

    WorldACD says looking at the top 20 origin countries, it noticed a more than average YoY volume growth in parts of the USA (Atlantic South +19.1%, and Midwest +14.4%), Vietnam (+16.6%), Australia (+15.9%), Japan (+12.3%), the UK (+10.4%), Spain (+8.6%) and Germany (+7.6%). Lagging behind were such diverse origins as Taiwan (-8.8%) , the Netherlands (+1.5%), China East (+2.9%) and India (+3.7%).

    The analyst adds: “In the various categories of specific cargo products, the transport of pharmaceuticals had the largest YOY revenue growth (+31%), thanks to a healthy volume increase of 19%, coupled with an increase of more than 10% in yields that are already more than 50% higher than average air cargo yields. Developments in the two largest product categories were quite different.

    “The transport of high tech & vulnerables goods thrived (both volume and yields increased by more than 11%), but fruits & vegetables were less in demand, at least when comparing with October 2016. The edibles’ volumes decreased by 2.5% YOY, whilst their average yields hardly gained ground. Compared with the previous month, however, this sector did very well, with a revenue increase of 16.3% over September 2017.”

    WorldACD says the trend in DTK growth for this year seems quite stable as whenever the growth in DTK’s (direct ton kilometers) is larger than the growth in kilogrammes, the average actual distance between origin and destination of shipments has increased.

    It adds: “In October 2017, the difference was smaller than in previous months (+6.9% in kilograms vs. +7.4% in DTK’s), as the traditional long haul markets from East Asia grew less than average this month. For the year as a whole, we expect DTK’s to outgrow volume by 1% point. This means that longer haul markets in 2017 continue to grow more than shorter haul.”

    THE Port of New York and New Jersey has handled their first 14,000-TEU ship, the CMA CGM T. Roosevelt that is deployed on the South Atlantic Express (SAX) service from China via the Panama Canal.

    The milestone was achieved five months after the opening of the elevated Bayonne Bridge.

    Fifty ships that could not pass under the bridge before it was raised have now done so, according to the port authority. Fourteen per cent of the ships that entered the port in 2017 could carry 9,000 TEU or more, up from nine per cent in 2016, reported IHS Media.

    The CMA CGM mega ship was handled at the Maher Terminals in Elizabeth and comes as the port waits to see how the elevated bridge and the widening of the Panama Canal a year earlier will impact port volumes over the long term.

    The latest data shows that October capped the port's best six-month period in its history. The port in October handled 408,764 loaded TEU, with loaded imports rising by 5.8 per cent and exports increasing by 1.3 per cent year on year.

    Some port stakeholders have questioned whether the port can handle the kind of sustained stress on equipment, resources and the drayage community that is expected when big ships visit the port on a regular basis. However, port officials said the Roosevelt docked and unloaded largely without equipment logjams or truck congestion.
