Airfreight leadership training is lacking

[ January 29, 2014   //   ]

A new report warns that managers in the airfreight industry need training in ‘higher-skills’ including leadership, team-building and market and financial analysis techniques, according to the latest BIFA newsletter. It is the result of a two year research project by The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) with active participation from the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the International Federation of Freight Forwarder Associations (FIATA).

While there are programmes to teach more basic skills, higher-level air cargo-focused training opportunities are limited, the report adds. It suggests creating a certificated and preferably accredited programme. Without it, the industry may struggle to attract qualified talent to successfully lead the industry in future.
