Ever wondered how the largest shippers manage vast supply chains, draw up contracts with favoured carriers or deploy the latest tech?

If so, this episode has you covered. Swedish multinational Electrolux’s annual full container load (FCL) volumes average some 175,000 teu, while its annual air freight tonnage is about 6,000 tonnes. Tia Mohan, ocean and air transportation planning director, joins host Mike King for an in-depth interview.

This episode also includes reports from TIACA’s Air Cargo Forum in Miami, from The Loadstar publisher Alex Lennane and Freightwaves’ air cargo editor Eric Kulisch.
