Air Freight & Logistics
The Air Freight and Logistics industry is in charge of providing assistance with freight services to individuals and businesses. Companies within this industry earn a revenue from one or more of the three segments that make up the industry: post and courier services, air freight transportation, and transportation logistics services.
The logistics that this industry provides includes services such as customs brokerage, contracting with road and air freight companies, cargo insurance, and purchase-order management. This industry is very influential for global trade as it promotes and brings stability to trade.
Regional carriers operate locally under full-service carriers. Network size is very important in this industry, and so it is not uncommon for airlines to partner with each other to offer more locations to their customers. When airlines partner together they increase their competitive edge as they are able to share overhead and increase their network without much cost to them. Some airlines also source some revenue from operating a cargo segment of their company.
Car Rental & Leasing
The Road Transportation industry is made up of companies that provide both long and short term trucking services to clients. These trucks carry important commodities and consumer goods for various companies. This industry has two branches, the first is the truckload segment where a truck is filled with goods for only one company, and the second is less-than-truckload where the truck has goods for different customers. This industry is relatively easy to enter and as such there are many owner-operators that either run their own projects or are sub-contracted to larger companies in the industry.
