MIAMI: April 24, 2019. The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) has appointed trade and logistics manager for the marketing division of Miami-Dade Aviation Department Emir Pineda to its board.

Pineda started his career as an intern at MIA in 1988 before embarking on a career that has seen him work in senior business development roles for cargo trade at both Dallas Fort Worth (DFW) Airport and Air France/KLM Martinair Cargo. He also served as the Commercial Route Development Manager for Cargolux, responsible for sales and operations throughout Latin America.

Tiaca Emir Pineda“It is an honour to have been selected to be a member of the Board of TIACA, the only organization that truly represents the entire cargo supply chain,” said Pineda. “For my tenure I would like to continue to pivot the association towards innovation, thus adding value to our members and the entire global logistics industry. In addition, I hope to attract greater focus and participation from Latin America, which has historically been under represented in the association.”

MIA is recognised as the world’s largest gateway to Latin America and the Caribbean, handling 83 percent of all air imports and 79 percent of all exports to/from the region.

“TIACA has been growing its global footprint as part of our new mission and vision for the Association,” said Sebastiaan Scholte, chairman of TIACA and CEO of Jan de Rijk Logistics. “MIA is the main gateway between the Americas, which is an important growing region for us.”

TIACA has signed Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) with several Latin American organizations who will be participating in the Association’s biennial event Air Cargo Forum (ACF). They include the Argentina-based Americas Alliance (AA), the Colombia-headquartered Federation of National Associations of Cargo Agents and International Logistical Operators of Latin America and the Caribbean (ALACAT), Chile-based logistics provider Universal Agencies South America (AGUNSA) and Mexican Association of Freight Forwarders (AMACARGA).
