  Cargo Airline Association: History
The Cargo Airline Association can be traced back to 1948, when the Air Freight Forwarders Association was formed to protect the members of the newly formed air freight forwarding industry from overregulation by the Civil Aeronautics Board and, to some extent, from the practices of the airline industry.
This form of representation continued for almost 30 years - until the air cargo industry was deregulated in 1977 and air freight forwarders became free to operate their own aircraft.
Today, the Association has a total of fifteen all-cargo airline members and has expanded Associate Membership to include airports that generate a significant amount of air freight and other industry members with a stake in the air cargo marketplace.

  Cargo airline - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cargo airlines (or airfreight carriers, and derivatives of these names) are airlines dedicated to the transport of cargo.
Larger cargo airlines tend to use new or recently built aircraft to carry their freight, but many use older aircraft, like the Boeing 707, Boeing 727, Douglas DC-8, Ilyushin Il-76.
A number of cargo airlines carry a few passengers from time to time on their flights, and UPS once unsuccessfully tried a passenger charter airline division.

 Freeing air cargo
European all-cargo airline executives faced off against a high-ranking U.S. aviation official at The International Air Cargo Association’s biannual forum in Washington, D.C. No ground was gained on any pressing issues relevant to cargo rights between Europe, the United Kingdom and the United States.
Cargo executives called for a new system of negotiating international aviation rights based on regional agreements, as opposed to the current system of bilateral treaties that has existed since the Chicago Convention of 1944.
All-cargo airlines should be treated like other modes of freight transportation, such as ocean shipping, that are more or less free to serve international trade without a high-level of intervention from government.

Cargo airlines have security plans and some cargo is randomly inspected.
Cargo Airline Association President Steve Alterman, who worked on the plan, said freight companies aren't expected to come up with plans to screen every piece of cargo that they handle.
"Cargo that is placed on passenger planes without first being physically screened is unseen, uninspected and unacceptable," said Markey, who has co-sponsored a bill to require inspection of 100% of cargo on passenger planes.

The flown-as-planned figures are a major milestone for the Cargo 2000 initiative, which has spent eight years developing quality management and measurement systems with the industry.
He said several of the big global manufacturers were now asking questions about their suppliers'progress within Cargo 2000 and were understanding the value of forwarders being "phase 2 compliant" — able to monitor and measure a shipment's movement doorto-door at house air waybill level.
Airline members were now measuring 60,000 master air waybills a month, or around 300,000 house air waybills.

 Airline Cargo Containers Case Study - RJI Incorporated
If an airline at JFK needs 14 cargo containers shipped to LAX tonight, yet only has 11 containers at JFK, then the inability to manage container inventory costs the airline a loss in shipping revenue.
When a forwarder receives a container, and does not return it to the originating airline, the airline must purchase new containers to maintain a workable inventory.
The inability to have cargo containers at the location needed for shipping is costing shippers millions of dollars each year.
