Echoes 1975-2015

Echoes 1975-2015   The year 2015 marks our 40th year in the world of air cargo news reporting—first as Air Cargo News and now as FlyingTypers.
   The stewardship of Air Cargo News FlyingTypers hasn't changed since 1975, and while that is an impressive feat, what is even more remarkable is that in 2015 we have been fortunate to present the writings of the nearly 102-year-old Richard Malkin, who remains the first air cargo reporter in history (circa 1942) and now serves as FlyingTypers' Senior Editor.
Here Richard continues a remembrance of events in an exclusive year-long series, "Echoes 1975-2015."

Echoes 2007
  DHL Express purchased a 49 percent stake and 25 percent of voting rights in Polar Air Cargo—an investment of $150 million. The deal guaranteed DHL transpacific access over a two-decade period. Potential revenues are estimated in the neighborhood of $3.5 billion.
  As DHL Express’ global CEO, John Mullen, viewed the deal, it will reduce transit times as well as upgrade delivery reliability in the Pacific marketplace. Mullen held that the move was a “strategic thrust” that adds muscle to DHL’s competitive position.
  Although Polar is an independent operation, it is wholly-owned by Atlas Air. The purchaser is a unit of Deutsche Post World Net.
