The latest update of global freight data collected by the International Transport Forum at the OECD through July 2017 shows that:

  • International trade related air freight volumes move back above the pre-crisis level of June 2008 both in the EU area and in the Unites States.
  • Exports to BRICS and Asia remain the locomotives for growth.
  • Surface freight volumes, measured in tonne-kilometres of goods transported, show signs of slowing down in the EU while recover in China.
