Amazon Air has launched twice-daily freighter service at Miami International Airport.
    The new cargo service is being operated by Atlas Air Worldwide with Boeing 767-300F aircraft and includes an onsite facility at MIA to sort packages bound for their next destination.
    Amazon already operates four warehouses in Miami-Dade County, all within 12 miles of MIA. The largest is an 885,000-square-foot fulfillment center at Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport completed this year.
    “Amazon Air’s two daily flights will add a significant boost to our domestic cargo traffic, which is already up 17 percent through August,” said Miami-Dade Aviation Director Lester Sola.
    Amazon Air’s launch comes nine months after the Miami-Dade Aviation Department (MDAD) hosted its first e-commerce strategy workshop. Market research firm eMarketer forecasts Latin America will experience strong e-commerce growth, with a projected doubling of annual sales from $47.4 billion in 2015 to $84.8 billion in 2019, MDAD said, adding that MIA is America’s busiest airport for international freight and handles more freight to Latin America and the Caribbean than any other U.S. airport.

The demise of small trucking companies is very similar to the demise of mid-scale farms, and it’s a serious concern especially as owners of these smaller trucking companies age out of the system.

THE Alliance’s PN2 offers faster transits from Vietnam to the U.S. than any other container shipping service at 14 days from Haiphong to Tacoma, according to BlueWater Reporting's database.
