Mumbai, December 11, 2018: The third edition of the Air Cargo Thought Leadership Summit by Kale Logistics Solutions – CLEAR VIEW 2018 – was held on 22nd and 23rd November, 2018 in Bangkok, Thailand. CLEAR VIEW is a pioneering interactive platform of 25-30 CXOs which, in the last two years, has had encouraging participation from IATA, TIACA, Alibaba, Dnata, Saudi Arabian Airlines, CSC, TIFFA, CargoWorks, leading Airlines, Cargo Handlers, Industry Associations, Regulators and Prominent Industry Consultants from North America, Europe, Africa and Asia.

Each year, the CLEAR VIEW summit provides stakeholders to discuss industry issues in a round table format and this year the sessions revolved around: Air Cargo handling infrastructure, Regulatory and industry initiatives, E-commerce and Air Cargo handling and New Markets and New Horizons for Air Cargo. CLEAR VIEW debuted in February 2016 at Dubai. Last year, the second edition of this event at Athens, Greece, received an overwhelming response from industry leaders. Building on the success of the last two editions, the 3rd edition in Bangkok has participation from very senior industry stalwarts. The CLEAR VIEW summit endeavours to ensure that a collective voice of the industry gets collated and the industry itself can assemble a charter for enabling possible realistic strategies and viable solutions to the challenges faced by the Air Cargo industry. Task groups are voluntarily formed by the delegates for to work towards issues identified during the round-table discussion post the event.

Commenting on the occasion, Vineet Malhotra, Director, Kale Logistics Solutions said, “This year too, as always, the CLEAR VIEW 3.0 summit unravelled various issues and challenges facing the air cargo industry and was the apt space for coming up with solutions to address them. We were quite privileged to have some reputed industry stalwarts speak at and participate in these discussions and bring home the repository of knowledge gained at the summit. We are very proud of having put together such an illustrious gathering and hope to continue to have such encouraging response in the years to come as well.”

CLEAR VIEW 3.0 delegates had the following to say about the event:

“CLEAR VIEW brings together industry leaders, sharing their views and vision on industry relevant trends and challenges. The setup allows for in-depth discussions and are concluded by defining action points.” – Steven Polmans, Head of Cargo and Logistics at Brussels Airport Company (BAC) and Member of the Board at TIACA 

“This event exceeded my expectations. The value brought by the discussions was immense. The call for action can become a force to reckon with. All of us have an opportunity and bounden duty to bring the industry to that level so that the baton is passed on in the right manner. Then, of course, it is for the next generation to run with it and make it even better. That’s the way I see it. So, a very big thank you and congratulations to Kale Logistics Solutions for bringing in such a focussed place where experts can really exchange ideas and that seed can be germinated and that can turn into a specific idea, a workable idea. I am very happy about that. Thank you.” – P. Balasubramanian, Founder & CEO, ACCIS (Air Cargo Consultancy International Services)

 “First of all, I would like to thank Kale Logistics Solutions for inviting us here. What is most important is change of mindsets. Before investing, you have to change the mindset of the people involved and then it is meaningful to make the investment. This was my first time at Clear View. Most of the attendees here are leaders in the industry, so I think forums like this one have the potential to increase the potential of the entire industry. CLEAR VIEW is a great asset for everybody.” – Murat Yalçın Kırca, Turkish Airlines/Turkish Cargo, Vice President of Cargo (Operations)
