Is TPPA going to ground e-commerce or let it fly (ideally, as air freight)?
OCTOBER 13, 2015
One of the strategies manufacturers and online stores will take is to price their products uniformly across the participating economies. If manufactures and e-stores across any TPPA economy offer similar prices, then the growth will predominantly occur in the ground segment, leaving the airlines wanting. Since the island economies of Indonesia and Philippines are not participating in the TPPA, the volumes of goods moving by air may eke out only small gains.
