Shipping goods via air is a fast way to get goods from one part of the world to another. At each airport, the freight gets handled by competent workers who unload, check and reload the planes. Over the last couple of years in Australia more freight was imported than exported in most of the larger cities. The airport freight handling industry has grown at 4.7% each year since 2018, and as we step out of post-COVID times and see another surge in air traffic there are opportunities for the industry to expand even more. This is why we make sure to employ a great team to handle the workload and who are experts in freight handling. Did you know that a lot of the freight gets put in regular passenger planes?
