Article submitted by Neutral Air Partner – TIACA Trustee Member and Gold Sponsor of the Digital Air Cargo Forum


Since Neutral Air Partner (NAP) was launched, our aim has been to inject a greater degree of advanced air cargo expertise into the logistics industry, revive specialization, and provide leading-edge air cargo solutions to the global supply chain as well as the logistics and aviation community.

Our mission has been to consolidate the air cargo logistics community and set new standards of excellence for our members, by building competitive advantages through technology adoption, developing innovative air cargo products and services, and by promoting sustainability.

Collaboration and partnerships have always been and should be part of our DNA. We all undoubtably seek a partnership culture, where we can build business around trust and comradeship.

NAP, as a premier global network which represents the independent SME air cargo logistics firms that do not have the opportunity to be around regulators and associations of our industry, has announced this year, a very important partnership with TIACA, that allows all our members to play an active role and take up with the challenges and opportunities the air cargo industry is facing today and tomorrow.

One of our main objectives as an air cargo logistics group, has always been to drive buying power across the air cargo supply chain, and in these uncertain Covid-19 times, where cargo is so vital for Aviation, due to major factors such as the upcoming vaccine transportation and the rise of e-commerce, we are feeling ready to implement our NAP Global Airline Partner program and to explore possible partnering opportunities with leading cargo airlines and ACMI operators.

Air cargo has been playing a vital role in contributing to the operating financial targets of the airline industry and the need to start preparing for the post COVID-19 period is imperative. SME Forwarders and consolidators represent over 45% of the global airfreight volumes and NAP members can play a significant role assisting airlines to fill their pax and freighter capacities to & from most airports worldwide.

The program includes various partnership options, from preferred global carrier status, to global/key account status for NAP members, marketing, PR & communications collaboration, global or regional BSA/CPA agreements, charter and special cargoes support, as well as target deals and volume incentives on a regional or global scale.

Neutral Air Partner presently consists of 250+ like-minded air cargo specialists from 150 countries, positioned amongst the world’s largest & top IATA air cargo logistics providers, in terms of tonnage and revenue. Our first-class partners are dedicated to providing optimum air cargo solutions to the international freight logistics, shipping & aviation community. 

Our members are leading firms from industry sectors including air cargo sales agents, beutral consolidators, master co-loaders, time critical logistics experts, GSA/GSSAs & airline brokers, express & courier, eCommerce operators, charter brokers, cargo airlines, general freight & logistics, vendors & service providers.
