Working groups at Executive Summit will shape future direction of TIACA

TIACA Board members will host a series of working sessions designed to give a platform for each section of the air cargo supply chain to discuss innovation and debate challenges at the Executive Summit (ES) in Budapest (BUD), Hungary in November (pictured, the BUD team welcoming new customers at their new Cargo City Facility in construction).

The round tables will focus on airlines, airports, cargo handling, freight forwarders, and shippers, with the results of the discussions presented by the session moderators in a drive to look for ways for TIACA to help find solutions and new ideas to work towards a better industry.

Turhan Ozen, Turkish Airlines, Pascal Belanger, Winnipeg Airports Authority, Dr. Khalfan Al Shuelili, Oman Aviation, Neel Shah Jones, Flexport, and Dennis Choumert, European Shippers Council will lead the debate on the opening day of TIACA’s ES 19th to the 21st of November 2019, hosted by Budapest Airport (BUD).

“Most TIACA members are only active in a part of the logistical chain therefore are not always aware of the issues faced by other stakeholders,” said Vladimir Zubkov, TIACA Secretary General.

“Also individual members, active in the same field, need to find a way to better work together, to discuss and solve industry specific topics, while being supported by TIACA.

“To give members this opportunity to work in subgroups but also, as an organization, to better understand the needs and requirements of subgroups of members, we are organising these round table discussions.”

“Today, more than ever, problems and challenges need to be tackled cross-company and industry-wide and that is why on the second day of the conference,  we will feed the conclusions of all five roundtables into the Summit, and the Board chairman, Steven Polmans, will make a summary which will help shape future TIACA strategy.”

The ES will provide the backdrop for the opening ceremony of BUD’s of its new EUR32.6 million, 20,000 m2 dedicated freight centre called Cargo City, (Pictured  which will expand BUD’s total cargo handling capacity to 250,000 tonnes per year, as well as an additional 10,000 m2 forwarder building (pictured in construction here).
