The global demand for air transport is rising in both current and emerging markets for the transport of goods. The air transport industry has become more dependent on technology, so it requires the adoption of modern layouts that keep pace with this development, because we are not far from our global surroundings. Therefore, leading companies are working on developing and evaluating their marketing strategy for survival, and this is done by keeping pace with the rapid changes in the world of air transport because it is a dynamic and competitive environment. That is why companies realize the complexity of the external and internal competitive situation. Therefore, air ports are considered an economic power, therefore, countries seek to improve and develop services and facilitate procedures in all joints of their airports, including air cargo. In the case of the presented paper, we worked on preparing the appropriate ground by developing proposals and recommendations, and then working on proposing internal and external layouts for the air cargo area. The aim, that to clarify the aspects of competition in air freight and develop its joints through modern layouts and designs that reduce global warming through green designs that give comfort in the work environment. This is done through the use of ENVI-met software, which provides solutions by providing 2D and 3D designs. One of the advantages of this program is addresses the problem, of global warming during the long daylight hours of concrete structures, roads, especially in the summer, which the heat load increases. And the heat emissions are reflected at sunset, this reflected increase the global warming in this area. These modern layouts and the ground services provided, that well be environmentally friendly are considered a strength factor in the competitive environment. Through practical experience, improving air freight in the case of the Baghdad International Airport does not depend only on the use of modern layouts. There are several factors are involved that contribute to developing and improving the performance of air freight and making it a pivotal center for transporting goods between countries of the world. One of the most important factors is the financial aspect, the planning aspect, the creative human resources that implement the plan, and the method of exploiting the available land spaces that help planners implement the modern development vision to improve performance.
