e-Commerce is the Hot Topic for Air Cargo at the Upcoming CNS Partnership Conference

“FreightWaves spoke with Michael (Mike) White, President of CNS and host of this year’s conference, who pointed out that e-commerce is growing at twice the rate of domestic trade and “changing so many of the things we do” in air cargo. Boeing estimates that the global e-commerce market will grow 20 percent per year to $4.9 trillion in 2021. The FreightWaves SONAR index (RESL.ONLN) for electronic shopping and mail-order house sales tracks well and portrays this rapid U.S. e-commerce growth, averaging nearly 14 percent annually since 2014.   

Among topics to be addressed using this format include

  • “The Effects of eCommerce on Customs,”
  • “Automating the Acceptance of Dangerous Goods,”
  • “Increasing Operational Efficiency in Air Cargo by AI and AR,”
  • “Economic Update – Future of eCommerce,”
  • “Need for Speed and Meeting Customer Expectations in the World of eCommerce” and
  • “Customs and Security Challenges in the Fast-Growing eCommerce Sector.” “
