Air freight sector pushes hard to help – and for help – to fight the virus
As Tiaca and Iata continue to lobby governments to relax restrictions on cargo movements, airlines ...
Tiaca is advancing its training credentials with a “masterclass” for the air freight industry.
Air Cargo Belgium and Tiaca are to offer a class on how the air freight sector can better leverage data and digitisation to improve the supply chain.
Taking place at BRUcargo’s facility in Brussels, the two-day event, starting on 30 January, will include debates and seminars on technology as an enabler, digital transformation and data sharing.
Head of cargo and logistics at Brussels Airport Company, and Tiaca vice chairman, Steven Polmans said it was “imperative” the industry learned to capitalise on emerging technology.
“We’re living in a period of great change, it’s imperative supply chain professionals learn to take advantage of technologies and trends, and explore new ways of collaborating,” he said.
“Attendees have the option of an additional session on day two, which looks at putting theory into practice and includes live demonstrations.”
Tiaca has also announced it will continue to run its professional development workshops, co-organised by the Strategic Aviation Solutions International (SASI). They cover a range of topics, from building management skills to insight sharing sessions about the whole supply chain.
The association, which has struggled in past years with its identity and purpose, now has several training strings to its bow. Earlier this year, it teamed up with UK-based aviation consultancy TSA Group for an extensive training programme for air cargo professionals, including the development of several new courses aimed at providing participants with a complete overview of the aviation industry.
And it also runs the Air Cargo Supply Chain Internship programme, which organises week-long visits for young participants between various air cargo companies, aimed at developing talent and building connections.
