TIACA refocuses with new value proposition

TIACA ACF Paris

The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) is refocusing its efforts with the development of more training and consultancy projects, as well as a new look, and a reinvigorated value proposition for its members. Driven by the association’s leadership team, TIACA’s new focus “will ensure a forward-looking approach to representing, supporting, and informing every element of an efficient, modern, and unified air cargo industry,” it said.

The Association said it will be globally focused while acting local and regional, and will work closely with other organisations and government bodies, building on recent tie-ups with associations in Africa, Latin America, North America, and Asia.

In addition, TIACA will set up clusters of members representing the different sectors of the industry, including, for example, airlines, airports, and ground handling agencies (GHAs). The clusters will concentrate on issues specific to their interests and challenges to develop solutions beneficial to the entire industry.

“TIACA is the only association representing all parts of the air cargo supply chain, and we have a 28-year history of championing our industry and supporting the development of talent and best practice,” said Sebastiaan Scholte, TIACA chairman and CEO of Jan de Rijk Logistics.

“The logistics landscape is rapidly evolving and disruptive business practices are challenging us to innovate; there has never been a more relevant time for TIACA to take the lead,” he added.

TIACA’s is pledging to secure improved networking opportunities at its showcase events, the Air Cargo Forum (ACF) and the Executive Summit (ES), as well as through regular communication and a new website.

The new vision was developed by a think-tank of industry experts, set up by TIACA’s leadership team and including Ram Menen, one of the Association’s founding members and president and chairman of the Board between 1995 and 1996.“The dynamics of air cargo has had a major makeover the past years,” said Menen.

“In keeping with this evolution, it is important for TIACA to stay relevant and show leadership in catalysing the change needed to embrace the new norm. The Association has a proud history of supporting our industry and demonstrating thought leadership and, with this new vision, we are paving the way for a strong future for airfreight.”

As part of the new strategy, TIACA is developing a new logo and new website, both of which will be launched later this year.

“TIACA members are already benefitting from our new agreements with associations in Latin America, Africa, North America, and Asia, and we will focus on further developing these ties,” said Vladimir Zubkov, TIACA secretary general. “TIACA’s new focus will ensure the Association continues to be proactive in the development of a sustainable and innovative air cargo industry.”

The new vision will see TIACA build further consultancy and training programs to support the ongoing development of the industry and will create a pool of qualified consultants and principles to provide the necessary expertise. This knowledge-sharing will help communities and regions willing to raise standards and improve, to forge a sustainable and healthy industry, the Association said.

The TIACA leadership team will be regularly updating members with more information as they continue to roll out the new vision for the Association.

TIACA will be holding its biennial Air Cargo Forum (ACF) in Toronto this coming 16-18 October.
