Air freight on the rise

Freight activity at the Medford airport in August picked up 3.8 percent over one year ago.

A total of 429,284 pounds moved in and out of the valley, up from 413,642 pounds in August 2009. The freight was moved primarily by Empire Air and Ameriflight.

Even though it was the fourth month in 2010 with year-over-year improvement, cargo transfers trail 2009 totals by 1.26 percent.
