Air Cargo World, an air logistics magazine, recognized the Memphis International Airport with its Air Cargo Excellence Award as the top cargo airport in North America in the 1,000,000 or more tonnes category. The ACE awards have been presented annually since 2005 and are given to airlines and airports based on the publication’s Air Cargo Excellence Survey.

Awards are given on ratings based on performance, value and facilities, which are gathered from surveys, that are filled out by freight forwarders, cargo agents, and third-party logistic providers.

“We are honored to be recognized as industry leaders by our aviation peers and colleagues,” said Scott Brockman, President and CEO of the Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority. “Cargo has a huge impact on both the local and worldwide economy, and we will continue to strive to facilitate its growth at MEM.”

In addition to highlighting winners, the data indicates airline or airport performance against the industry average.

This award comes after Memphis was named as a top domestic destination due largely in part to the lower airfares offered. The Memphis Airport continues to add new flights, has updated their vision plan, amped up their marketing plan, and recently added a new partnership with I Love Memphis.
