Cargo is defined as goods that are transported by a large vehicle, a ship or an aircraft. Other terms used may be shipment or load. Cargo that does not include passengers is called freight. Passenger airplanes, for example, have also been known to transport additional cargo, though in smaller amounts than a freight vehicle. Frankfurt/Main Airport is one of the leading international airports in Germany and Europe. Among all German airports, it had the largest passenger volume, as well as the most aircraft movements.

Leading cargo airports

While air freight traffic has fluctuated in Frankfurt/Main in recent years, it has remained above the two million tons mark. Meanwhile, among cargo airports worldwide, Hong Kong, Memphis and Shanghai were among the leading three.
