This paper discusses risk management approaches in the air cargo industry. It gives a concise overview of developments, business practices and complexities of the air cargo industry and draws cross-references to comparable industries. It introduces supply contracts for capacity and the inherent risks in the shipping process. Based on that, approaches to mitigate risk are studied. The work elaborates on the historically grown research field of revenue management and puts emphasis on the discipline of overbooking in the air cargo sector. Capacity options and financial intermediation are presented as more innovative approaches for capacity risk management. The application of these various risk management methods is evaluated in an expert study among air cargo industry professionals from different market perspectives. With that, obstacles to the successful implementation are identified and potential solutions are named.

In 2004, an estimated 23 billion pounds of air cargo (AC) was transported within the U.S., about a quarter of which was transported on passenger aircraft. Within the Dept. of Homeland Security, the Transportation Security Admin. (TSA) is responsible for ensuring the security of commercial aviation, incl. AC. To evaluate the status of TSA's efforts to secure domestic AC, this report examined: (1) the extent to which TSA used a risk management approach to guide decisions on securing AC; (2) the actions TSA has taken to ensure the security of AC & the factors that may limit their effectiveness; & (3) TSA's plans for enhancing AC security & the challenges that TSA & industry stakeholders face in implementing these plans.
