New air croup chief calls for clarity

[ June 6, 2013   //   ]

The Global Air Cargo Advisory Group (GACAG)’s new chairman says that the organisation must build on its achievements of the last two years and provide “clear pointers, direction and targets.”

Oliver Evans, chief cargo officer of Swiss International Air Lines, assumed the role after his election as chairman of The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA), one of the Group’s four founders alongside the International Air Transport Association (IATA), FIATA – the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations, and the Global Shippers’ Forum.

He succeeds Michael Steen, executive vice president and chief commercial officer of Atlas Air Worldwide Holdings, whose term as chairman of TIACA and GACAG ended in May.

Evans said: “We have achieved much in the past two years, but the opportunities ahead are greater still. Our priority must be to provide clear pointers, direction and targets in such a complex industry. I am therefore delighted that the Cargo 2000 Board has sought an ongoing dialogue with us which started last month in Brussels, as this is a perfect example of how the various industry groups and associations are now pulling together around the banner of GACAG to simplify and strengthen our processes.”
