Air Cargo Shipments Dip 0.6%

Air cargo shipments inched up 0.6% in February, the Air Transport Association said late Monday.

Domestic shipments dipped 0.6% to 914.1 million revenue ton-miles, while international shipments rose 1.7% to 1.02 billion RTMs, the group said in its monthly report.
 
A revenue ton-mile is the revenue generated by carrying one ton of freight one mile.

Air cargo shipments always have a trucking component, since air carriers use trucks for local and regional ground transportation.
