Word on the street is that ABX-DHL is going from 130 something feeder flights to 60 something feeder flights. Only turban feeders remaining. Transition is now through October?

Most of the CVG feeders are mirrored by an ABX Air DC-9. In a case of a run I used to fly, we were mirrored by 3 DC-9's. We just flew 7000 pounds of mostly international freight to CVG so it could ride on the international flights that AStar, NWA, and LH operated.
The feeders in CVG right now are Ameriflight with Metros and Brasilias, Air Tahoma with 3 CV-580's, Nolinor with 1 CV-580, ACC had one Shorts 330, that run has already ended. SkyWay has 1 Shorts 360, Martinaire has a couple Caravans, and Superior has a couple Metros.
When ABX started hauling the international cargo too, there were 2-3 feeders a night flying the freight inbetween ILN and CVG.
Now with the consolidation they can eliminate the need for feeders (to the hub) almost completely.
Feeders will most definately exist outside the hub...mostly out of airports that ABX or AStar can't get a 727 or a DC-9 into.
The only ILN feeder that will remain as far as I know will the the ACC Shorts 360 that flys MWA-ILN-MWA.
