The squeeze is the result of airport congestion caused by truck choked intra airport roads, often long lines of truckers delayed in picking up and dropping off loads, poor dock-door management, scant or overcrowded air freight facilities, and understaffed ground handlers — all strained by a rising tide of domestic and international air cargo tonnage. North American air cargo volume was up 5.3 percent in the first six months of 2018 compared to the same period a year ago, according to the International Air Transport Association.
