A New Kind of Total Systems Approach to Air Cargo: AN INDUSTRY IS BORN 801069

An examination of the development of intermodal air/surface containerization based to a large extent on the lessons gained in marine containerization and how this experience has transferred to the new opportunities that are apparent for air shippers. The paper examines the history and growing sophistication of air/surface container leasing and how the concept of high-service leasing can be readily applied to air cargo carriers and shippers.
A detailed rationale for service-oriented leases spells out the benefits for air shippers who deal with leasing companies including the availability of quality containers; flexibility in acquiring additional containers when required; incerchangeability with other pool customers; and easing of the burdens of container control, maintenance, repair and administration.
