Shipments of commercial freight and mail at Ontario International Airport, which measured more than 65,000 tons, decreased 10.3% in March compared with 2022. Cargo tonnage was 9% lower on a year-to-date basis. Even so, ONT continues to outperform the industry as a whole as higher interest rates and slowing consumer demand have impacted shipping volumes.
Worldwide cargo volumes were 11% lower in the first quarter, according to WorldACD Market Data, an Amsterdam-based publishing enterprise which compiles market data for shippers, airlines, airports and others in the air cargo market.
