The top 7 logistic firms moved 8 million tons of goods in 2020
DHL Global Forwarding moved 1.8 million tons of freight in 2020 by plane. Kuhne + Nagel, also a German group but based in Switzerland, transported 1.4 million tons in 2020, but like DHL suffered from the pandemic-led economic slowdown. Danish group Panalpina grew freight volumes by more than 18% in 2020 overtaking DB Schenker. The top 7 air freight companies moved approximately 8 million tons of goods through the air only slightly downwards from 8.6 million in 2019. Chinese firm Apex Logistics picked up on some of this slack as China's economy recovered more quickly than others, increasing volume by 44%.
