Air Cargo Summary Data (All)
October 2002 - October 2016
This monthly freight summary includes both freight and mail carried by U.S. airlines in all service classes (scheduled and non-scheduled). Data in this report goes back to October 2002 when a change in reporting requirements increased the number of reporting carriers and started collection of monthly all-cargo service data. For previous data (all-carrier summary only), go to Air Freight Summary Data, January 1991 - September 2002.  See Carrier Snapshots
