The air transport has come as a remedy in this case and instance because it is critical to ensure that the goods are transported from one part to another. For instance, the goods which would otherwise take weeks from China would now take lesser times in terms of days. This is to say that the air shippers have made the delivery of products to the final consumers to be relatively faster. For instance, a product from an American factory would faster reach its final consumers in faraway country, due to air transport-or the air shippers (Chatfield & Bjørn, 1997). The airship owners are strategically positioned in terms of ownership of the vital connection points, thus by fact and extension reducing the supply chain in terms of time and cost.
