What is an Air Freight Forwarder?

A type of freight forwarder who specializes in air cargo and who performs consolidation of consignments in its own name.

Forwarders are vital for international airlines.

Forwarders book cargo space on planes more than any other supply chain partner. According to the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA), more than 80% of international air cargo activity can be attributed to forwarders.

When freight is tagged for air treatment, it’s usually because:

  • It is of particularly high value or
  • Its delivery is time-sensitive

And because time-sensitive stickers are slapped on cargo with increasing frequency as customer expectation for speedy delivery continues its upturn, cargo space in the air is a hotter commodity than ever before.

For many this would be a disruptive trend. At PFC we’re armed to combat it — we take things in stride.  

When threatening supply chain hiccups have cropped up, PFC has provided emergency air charter service.

That’s just how we fly.

The past year was an extremely good one for air freight.1 That’s partly the result of capacity discipline and consolidation in container shipping. But the sector can attribute most of its current prosperity to the restocking of business inventories after a period of unexpectedly strong global economic growth and consumption. Our analysis suggests that air-freight volumes will continue to increase, by an average of about 3 percent a year, at least until 2025 and most likely until 2030. Many industries would be happy with that sort of future. And air-freight forwarders—companies that help shippers cope with the complexities and annoyances of moving their goods by air—will participate fully in it.

Yet not all is well for air-freight forwarders and cargo airlines. Faster growth in belly capacities and modernized freighter fleets will subject general cargo to price pressures of up to 3 percent a year—in other words, revenues may be almost flat despite higher transport volumes. An even bigger question hanging over the business today is digitization. New technologies, such as advanced analytics and machine learning, can help companies automate some of their back-end and customer-facing processes and raise levels of utilization. But these technologies will also disrupt air-freight forwarding profoundly over time.

The specter of digitization

Traditional air-freight forwarders face increasing pressure to digitize from three sources: (1) digital forwarding specialists offering solutions for one or two elements of the value chain, (2) digital forwarders providing a range of transport services almost as wide as traditional forwarders do and a better customer experience at relatively low cost, and (3) carriers building and improving their digital channels to serve customers, especially smaller ones, directly (Exhibit 1).

Although digitization will change both supply and demand, the course of technological progress is harder to predict now than it was in past disruptions. Several future scenarios are conceivable, depending on the adoption rates of the technologies that influence the pace and extent of automation and collaboration, the substitution of flows from one form of transport to another, and the ability of 3-D printing to displace significant volumes of air-freight cargo flows.

Here we present one plausible scenario for 2030. In this future, air-freight forwarders will automate their operations significantly, digitizing much of their business model. They will collaborate extensively with adjacent value-chain partners—for instance, providers of intermodal services. 3-D printing won’t have a major effect on air-freight cargo. The role of intermediaries will contract, and consolidation will threaten many smaller forwarders that struggle to digitize. The more comprehensive digital forwarders will act as catalysts for the new technologies, but, increasingly, successful companies will be specialists, offering advanced data-based solutions. All surviving forwarders will be more digitized by 2025 than they are today, and by 2030 they will be very digitized indeed. The better they leverage these technologies to reduce their internal costs and improve the customer experience, the better their chances of keeping or extending their share of the profits.
