Abstract

This article is intended to assist in documenting the needs of regional communities with regards to air freight services. In doing so, the article first considers the importance of air service access to small and regional communities with particular emphasis on those economies bolstered by agriculture and the production of high-value, low weight, perishable products. The article then explores the air freight challenges facing regional communities and discusses the needs for: integration; infrastructure; and service reliability. The article provides an overview of potential solutions to assist in meeting these needs, including: improving the flow of information and communication between businesses in the entire distribution system; and applying electronic commerce tools to assist in integrating systems and sharing information.
