Act today for a resilient tomorrow

In partnership with one of the leading industry IT solutions providers CHAMP Cargosystems, TIACA organized 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 recognize outstanding businesses and industry initiatives leading the way to a more sustainable air cargo industry.

• economic development (business efficiency, optimization, trade development)
• environmental impact (green logistics, reduced carbon footprint)
• innovation (technology, automation, AI, data, unmanned vehicles, ULDs)
