Technology and regulation always have defining impacts on any industry.

Posted By Administration, Friday, June 16, 2017


Technology and regulation always have defining impacts on any industry. For the air cargo industry, we know that regulation continuously pushes the industry in upgrading the technology. We all have seen that AMS, ENS, ICS etc made our systems capable of sending advance information to destination regulators and now Pre Loading Advance Cargo Information (PLACI) initiatives like ACAS, PRECISE, and PACT now demand pre-loading information to be sent from our systems.


Whilst the need of PLACI can’t be understated, TIACA has been vociferously advocating the need for standardization of data and format requirements so that the industry doesn’t have bear the burden of tweaking its systems to comply with PLACI requirements of multiple countries & regions. Concurrently, TIACA has discussed possible solutions with other industry bodies and has conceptualized a path-breaking initiative called SWACI (Single Window for Advance Cargo Information). SWACI aims to take shape of an electronic platform available to the industry using which the members of our industry can meet the compliance requirements of PLACI of multiple countries. The initiative is still in infancy but has a great potential in reducing the compliance costs and burden for the industry.


TIACA also supports several innovative initiatives that have the potential of bringing in path-breaking changes. Whilst we at TIACA are monitoring the progress of Block chain technology and its impact on the air cargo industry, we are also working closely with the groups that are involved in creating Data Backbones.


TIACA is also lending its expertise in the space of trade facilitation and is involved in advising some of the world’s leading and fast growing economies in conceptualizing the trade facilitation infrastructure and putting in place air cargo single window systems. TIACA plans to grow this capability to make even greater contribution to the industry. If you feel that TIACA shall advise the governments of your country as well on air cargo single window systems, please feel free to get in touch with the Secretary General with the contact details of concerned people in the Civil Aviation ministries.


We see the future ushering in a lot of excitement and it is our sincere effort to ensure that our every member is prepared to deal with the changes and the challenges of future.

If you want to understand and be future-ready then please block your Calendars from October 18th to 20th  for TIACA’s 2017 Executive Summit, “Future Proofing Air Cargo” which takes place at Turnberry Isle Resort & Golf Club, Miami, USA. You will not only hear from the experts on these trends but you can also participate in discussions and debates to make sure that you are on top of things.


We hope to see you all in Miami in October!!!
