Air Cargo Sustainability Awards 2020

Act today for a resilient tomorrow

In partnership with one of the leading industry IT solutions providers CHAMP Cargosystems, TIACA is organizing the second Air Cargo Sustainability Awards to recognize outstanding businesses and industry initiatives to make air cargo more sustainable.

With this competition TIACA aims to celebrate and encourage creative solutions demonstrating a strong vision for a responsible, resilient, and united air cargo industry. 


The submissions should cover ideas and practices demonstrating how cargo is making positive change in the 3+2 areas of TIACA’s sustainability vision: supporting social welfare, economic development and environmental protection through innovation and partnerships.
