“TIACA is the only Association to represent every segment of the air cargo supply chain, making the Air Cargo Forum the perfect platform for meeting new suppliers, networking with industry leaders, and learning from the experts,” said Vladimir Zubkov, Secretary General, TIACA.

“Our new vision and mission launched earlier this year has seen us strengthen our global scope and we are working more closely than ever with new associations and partners representing the full global supply chain spectrum, to see how we can learn from one another and grow.”

The associations holding Board meetings at next week’s ACF include CIFFA, the Airforwarders Association (AfA), the Animal Transport Association (ATA), the Freight Management Association, and the Canadian Association of Importers and Exporters.

Other partners of this year’s event include the Mexican freight forwarders’ association AMACARGA, the Federation of National Associations of Cargo Agents and International Logistical Operators of Latin America and the Caribbean (ALACAT), Americas Alliance, Airports Council International, the African Airlines Association (AFRAA), and Neutral Air Partner.
