Cargo Airlines are specialized in transporting valuable freight. Some Cargo Airlines are subsidiaries of larger passenger airlines, whereas the majority of Cargo Airlines is owned by Logistics Services Companies. Cargo planes are primarily intended for transporting heavy goods. FedEx is the world’s largest cargo airline, with 688 planes on the ground and another 67 on order. There are hundreds of cargo airlines in the world, all with the same goal: to transport cargo. Without competent logistical support, worldwide trade, global export/import operations, international moving of raw materials/products, and construction are difficult, if not impossible, to achieve. Airplanes are the most common.
