Chanel Fragrances and Beauté and Ericsson amongst members announced on the first day of TIACA’s Executive Summit in Miami
Miami, USA, Wednesday 25th May 2016 – Shippers from a cross-section of global industries have joined TIACA’s Shipper Advisory Committee, the Association announced at its Executive Summit (ES) today.
Representatives from Chanel Fragrances and Beauté, Ericsson, and Sandvik Machining Solutions will be joining Chairman Lars J.T. Droog, Manager – Supply Chain & General Affairs from Tosoh Corporation on the council.
Marine Harvest RMT and Teva Pharmaceutical Industries are also now members, with shippers from the automotive and flower sectors to be announced soon.
“We have representation from a wide range of industries who ship a significant amount by air globally to bring insight into shipper challenges, so that the industry can better collaborate and work towards slicker, safer supply chains,” said Droog.
The new council complements existing shipper organizations by expanding the opportunity to include all sectors of the global air cargo community, according to Doug Brittin, Secretary General, TIACA.
“TIACA represents all sections of the industry and we feel it is very important to provide this platform specifically for shippers to bring their concerns to the discussion table,” said Sanjiv Edward, TIACA Chairman and Head of Cargo Business, Delhi International Airport.
“Collaboration is key to ensuring we add value to the industry.”
TIACA also announced the launch of a new improved advocacy knowledge bank on its website today.
The information will be sorted by topic, including Pre-Loading Advance Cargo Information (PLACI), dangerous goods, security programs, research and development, e-commerce, as well as market access and trade facilitation.
Each topic will be fully described and easily searchable so that industry segments can determine how it may affect them.
“We want to ensure that we deliver timely, relevant information to our members so that they can be ready for new legislation and take action where necessary,” said Brittin.
TIACA’s three-day Executive Summit brought together over 170 delegates from across the globe to network and take part in discussions and workshops on topics from e-commerce to PLACI.
TIACA’s Air Cargo Forum (ACF), which takes place 26th to 28th October in Paris, France this year, will welcome thousands of supply chain decision makers and over 200 exhibitors for a three-day networking and learning event.
Topics at the Forum will include disruptive innovation and future air cargo hubs as well as updates on new legislation.
