TIACA unveils its vision of the future

[ February 2, 2018   //   ]

The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) team is rolling out a new vision with more training and consultancy projects.

It also plans to set up clusters of members representing the different sectors of the industry – for example, airlines, airports, and ground handling agencies. These will concentrate on issues specific to their interests and challenges to develop solutions beneficial to the entire industry.

TIACA chairman and chief executive officer of Jan de Rijk Logistics, Sebastiaan Scholte, said: “The logistics landscape is rapidly evolving and disruptive business practices are challenging us to innovate; there has never been a more relevant time for TIACA to take the lead.”

The new vision was developed by a think-tank of industry experts, set up by TIACA’s leadership team and including former Emirates Skycargo boss Ram Menen, one of the association’s founding members and president and chairman between 1995 and 1996.

He said: “It is important for TIACA to stay relevant and show leadership in catalysing the change needed to embrace the new norm.

TIACA is developing a new logo and website which will be launched later this year.
