A very large percentage of the air exports comprise of ad-hoc readymade garment shipments. Bulk of these shipments are initially planned to move by sea but due to delays in manufacturing are converted to airfreight at short notice. Due to the ad-hoc nature of the exports, forward sales & load planning is extremely difficult as even the shippers/forwarders are unable to provide realistic projections. Market selling rates also tend to fluctuate as the peak/lean seasons are not defined. The peak/lean periods are essentially created by the abundance or scarcity of these ad-hocs.
