Although shipments of vivid manufactured and high tech goods have significantly fallen owing to the disrupting global economy given the massive COVID-19 outbreak, carriers are witnessing massive demand for transportation of medical supplies, foodstuffs, e-commerce shipments, and protective equipment as people have been increasingly opting for delivery services. In addition to this, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) has predicted that the global air cargo is oversubscribed by 30 per cent.
