Frankfurt, September 14, 2016 – Europe’s carriers are finding new ways to succeed in a weakening world economy. Next to increasing their additional cargo capacity, location, aircraft and infrastructure also play an increasingly important role. Against this backdrop, Finnair Cargo Managing Director Janne Tarvainen discussed his airline’s new strategy with Aircargo Club Germany (ACD) and spoke to Uwe Beck, Managing Director of BeCon Projects, about the new fully automated cargo terminal in Helsinki.
“Because of low profit margins in the air cargo sector, the need for airlines to adapt their strategies is bigger than ever before. Creative approaches are needed – for example high quality offers for pharmaceutical companies or applying innovative technologies”, says Winfried Hartmann, President of ACD and adds: “That is why it is so important for our members to exchange ideas and experiences.”
