Eight years ago when IATA published this lovely poem as an ode to air cargo, little did one know that this industry would deliver help and hope too! In these unprecedented times, where cargo now “travels” on passenger seats, this industry is leaving no stone unturned to ensure safe and timely delivery of essential goods and medical supplies to those who need it the most.

Ode to Air Cargo

STAT Times applauds these hidden heroes for their herculean efforts.  Three cheers to the entire air cargo fraternity who are committed to getting the job done, today and always.

Ode to Air Cargo

Flowers for Mum, gadgets for Dad
Toys at Christmas, no one is sad
If it were not for air cargo, we would not have

Strawberries at Wimbledon, the latest i-fad
Stylish new shoes, wow, they are rad
If it were not for air cargo, we would not have

The hottest jewelry, the freshest of meat
Even the leather that covers your seat
If it were not for air cargo, we would not have

TVs, radios, music that booms
Even the speakers that fill our rooms
If it were not for air cargo, we would not have

Salmon from Norway, lamb from the South
Tasty chocolates, delicious in the mouth
If it were not for air cargo, we would not have

Sports cars, race horses, helicopters too
Yes, on an airplane that will surprise you
If it were not for air cargo, we would not have

Circuit boards, scanners, crayons and plates
Even the rollers that affix to your skates
If it were not for air cargo, we would not have

Wines, clothes and diamond rings
Cheeses, books in fact most things
If it were not for air cargo, we would not have

Thousands of jobs and millions of lives
Impacted positively as the economy thrives
Make it here, sell it there
Air cargo people, they really care

So as you sit comfortably in your aircraft seat
Think of the cargo beneath your seat
