Christos Spyrou, CEO and Founder of Neutral Air Partner (NAP), has joined the Board of Directors of The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA), which will next meet in Istanbul following the World Cargo Symposium.
At the end of 2019, TIACA announced the creation of a new membership category to allow small companies and startups to become TIACA members at a rate designed to reflect their size and financial capacity. Alongside this, the partnership concluded with Neutral Air Partner allowed NAP’s 250 members to automatically become TIACA members.
Christos Spyrou’s appointment to the association’s Board forms part of this expansion and modernisation drive. TIACA’s aim is to combine the strengths of all stakeholders, consolidate all concerns and priorities, take inspiration from practices in each sector and represent the interests of the air freight industry as a whole.
“Christos’s nomination is fully in line with our ambition to open up our association’s doors as widely as possible to all stakeholders in our industry,” says Steven Polmans, chairman of TIACA. “His unrivalled knowledge of air freight, coupled with his high level of involvement in our industry and his ability to bring people together, will help us achieve that ambition.”
Spyrou brings 30 years of experience in the air freight industry to TIACA’s Board. Both an entrepreneur and an expert in the sector, his specialist areas include advanced air freight consolidation management, neutral air freight wholesale, ULD utilisation and equalisation, gateway planning, networking, and effective selling & sourcing for the professional air freight broker and forwarder.
“For me, joining TIACA’s Board is a real opportunity to contribute on a global level to building the future of our industry,” says Spyrou. “I would like to thank TIACA for its confidence in me, and I will devote all of my energy and expertise to serving our association.”
