You better believe it is. The technology driving the optimization for air freight forwarding in 2022-2023 is in the driver seat for progressive shipping carrier optimization platforms such as ClearJet among other industry participants. It takes a ton of technology to ensure an end-consumers parcel is offered space within empty air cargo and it takes a ton more energy and resources to effectively broker the temporary lease for the space in order to get parcels from origin to destination.
As the world continues to change, it’s important for businesses to adapt. Air freight forwarding is one area that is likely to see some changes in the coming years. The industry is expected to grow significantly over the next decade, and this growth will bring with it some challenges.
One of the biggest challenges facing air freight forwarders is the increasing demand for capacity. This demand is being driven by a number of factors, including the growth of e-commerce and the expansion of global trade. As a result, forwarders are under pressure to find ways to increase their capacity. This can be a challenge, as many forwarders are already operating at or near capacity. A balance between mainstay relationships only procured by in-person meetings and long-term industry expertise and the application of new technology is required to create ‘win-win’ situations here for airlines, carriers, brands, and consumers.
Overall, air freight forwarding is likely to see some changes in the coming years. The industry is expected to grow significantly, and this growth will bring with it some challenges. Forwarders will need to find ways to increase their capacity and keep up with the latest technology. However, if they are able to do so, they can continue to play a vital role in the global economy.
