The airfreight market in Germany is currently weakening. The ADV reports that the amount of freight transported in the first quarter of this year fell by 2% to 1.18 million tons.
The strongest growth – both in absolute and in percentage terms – was at the Hahn Airport with a plus of 3.4%, or 724,000 tons of freight.
Amongst the large airports, Cologne/Bonn saw the biggest fall for the first quarter with 4.3% less freight. At Lufthansa Cargo’s annual press conference, Peter Gerber described this development as a slump in the market (caused by uncertainty over trade disputes between China and the USA, the ongoing Brexit drama and possible punitive customs measures by the USA), but one that nevertheless seems likely to be short-term in nature, because there are large trends that run in the opposite direction: global population growth and the associated increase in demand for goods, as well as rising incomes, all of which should give airfreight a boost in the years ahead.
From the 1st of January 2020 ships may only use fuel with a maximum sulphur content of 0.5%; the current standard allows fuel with a maximum of 3.5%. The so-called IMO 2020 directive is the first in a series of measures by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) to reduce sea pollution.
