Freight traffic grows

Freight activity at the Medford airport rose by nearly 29 percent in November, according to data compiled by Jackson County.

A total of 430,399 pounds of cargo was transported in and out of airport, up from the 333,990 pounds in November 2009. For the year, the airport has seen a gain of nearly 3.5 percent, but will need a strong December to avoid a fifth-straight annual decline based on overall weight.

About 54 percent of the freight was shipped into Southern Oregon.
