In this Aug. 14, 2020 episode of the Air Cargo World Weekly Wrap, editors discuss some surprising Q2 results among Asian carriers, the push to fortify the air cargo supply chain for vaccine shipments and U.S. political contributions from transportation PACs.
This week, Air Cargo World published an overview of second-quarter results for major Asian cargo carriers, which held some surprising traffic results for Korean Air Cargo and Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific Cargo. Meanwhile, some airlines are preparing for the eventual likelihood that airfreight will be utilized for widespread global distribution of a COVID-19 vaccine.
