North America’s mainstay cargo hubs have increasingly come under pressure as congestion and a general bias towards passenger services has limited the growth opportunities for cargo. While the traditional cargo hub airports tended to be located at the major Atlantic and Pacific coast gateway cities, other secondary airports and ambitious inland airports have been quick to seize the moment in establishing attractive incentives including lower fees, value added services and new purpose built cargo infrastructure.

The ongoing global economic downturn has, of course, dampened many of these aspirations, but these ambitious airports are simply biding their time until the industry recovers and carriers, fresh from success rounds of cost cutting and fiscal austerity will be looking for new markets and new options. The North American Gateways Supplement in the November issue of Payload Asia will examine the current state of play and how the various cargo hubs have withstood the downturn. The supplement will also look at theslate of eager airports who are closely eyeing a slice of the air cargo pie.
