Distribution of products by air will increase in importance as the economic transition develops. The air freight industry will gradually evolve from today's preponderance of narrow-body freighters through the current generation of wide-body lower hold and all-freighter aircraft. At a point in time when the major dollar portion of world trade will be shipped by air, the system will be dependent on very advanced technology, uncompromised all-freighters. These freighters will operate on an air freight network dedicated to service, economic development, and to raising living standards throughout the world.
