Growth in air freight

…in the first 10 months of 2021, 78.9 million kg of car parts were sent by air from Asia to the US - a staggering increase from the 3 million kg shipped during the same period in 2020.


Air is inherently not very cost effective compared to other means of transport. It is only because of that moron in DC that this has become useful on such a large scale.

There is also a moron in California who has screwed up the ports.


However, during peak fear of Covid-19, airplanes were an underutilize resource and thus more economic than during “normal” times.
