Freight activity at the Medford airport declined in January, falling 11.8 percent from January 2010.
The 357,984 pounds of cargo declined from 405,711 pounds a year earlier and marked the 10th-straight month of decline. The airport began tracking freight after it was designated a U.S. customs site in the late 1990s. The customs office was closed later and, in recent years, fuel costs and the general economy have kept annual freight totals low.
