menenMIAMI: January 31, 2018. The International Air Cargo Association has announced a new vision that includes more training and consultancy projects to ensure it remains relevant in a fast-changing industry.

The new vision has been developed by a think-tank of industry experts set up by TIACA's leadership team that includes Ram Menen, one of the association's founding members.

"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 catalyzing the change needed to embrace the new norm."

The association says it will work closely with other organizations and government agencies, building on recent agreements with regional bodies in Africa, Latin America, North America, and Asia.

TIACA will also establish member clusters representing airlines, airports and ground handling agencies (GHAs) 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," explained Sebastiaan Scholte, association 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."

Association secretary general Vladimir Zubkov said TIACA members were already benefiting from new agreements with associations in other parts of the world.
