Chicago needs a 21st-century airport (that’s not in Chicago)

A world-class city needs a world-class cargo airport. But when it comes to air cargo, Chicago remains the Second City. O’Hare International Airport’s cargo volume declined 4.6 percent between 2011 and 2012, ranking it 20th worldwide. By comparison, New York’s two main regional airports, John F. Kennedy International and Newark Liberty International, combined for a ranking of 10th in the world. Airports in Memphis, Louisville, Miami and Los Angeles each handled more air cargo tonnage than O’Hare did last year.
