TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Report 143: Guidebook for Air Cargo Facility Planning and Development explores tools and techniques for sizing air cargo facilities, including data and updated metrics for forecasting future facility requirements as a function of changing market and economic conditions. The procedures included in the report may help airport operators develop effective business plans and make decisions that meet the industry’s current and future technological, operational, and security challenges in a cost-effective, efficient, and environmentally-sensitive manner.
In addition to the report, a CD-ROM contains the Air Cargo Facility Planning Model in a spreadsheet format. This model includes procedures for planning, developing, and implementing air cargo facilities that can be adapted and applied by users to reflect local requirements and development conditions for cargo facilities serving a wide variety of markets, including international gateways, national cargo hubs, domestic airports, and others.
The CD-ROM is also available for download from TRB’s website as an ISO image. Links to the ISO image and instructions for burning a CD-ROM from an ISO image are provided below.
