An Air Cargo World feature on forwarders and e-commerce in perishables saw Panalpina’s Colin Wells and Quint Wilken elaborate on the state of the sector.

Airlifting 42,000 kg of frozen guacamole from Mexico to the UK in ten shipments over a six-week period might seem odd. Why ship frozen food by air? If the customer was happy with having the product sent over six weeks, wouldn’t a single shipment by ocean be more reasonable?

The purchase of a product often marks the end of a supply chain. But increasingly consumers are questioning the traditional linear process of “take, make, dispose”, demanding that manufacturers and retailers ensure that they reduce or eliminate waste. In the circular economy, logistics companies play an important role in extending the life of products through reuse, remanufacturing and recycling.

Already in September, Panalpina’s global head of Air Freight, Lucas Kuehner, in an interview singled out HKG to LAX as one key lane where capacity would get even tighter.
