GSF will host a pavilion, and GSF members will benefit from access to TIACA’s one-to-one meeting scheduler, CargoLinX, to make the most of their time at the show.
“The GSF represents the interests of shippers globally and campaigns on the issues that most affect them,” said Chris Welsh, Secretary General, GSF.
“The GSF has taken the lead in air cargo industry cooperation and was a founder member of the Global Air Cargo Advisory Group (GACAG), established to enhance the air cargo product and to jointly campaign on key issues with regulators and key international organizations such as ICAO and WCO,” he added.
“We greatly value our cooperation with TIACA and the ACF is an ideal opportunity for our members to network with suppliers and peers, and take part in practical workshops which will help them run more efficient supply chains.”
Shippers will also take center stage in the ACF speaker line up, with Pascal Meyer, Head of Transportation and Customs for CHANEL Fragrances and Beauté, and Lars J.T. Droog, Manager Supply Chain and General Affairs, Tosoh Corporation taking part in a discussion on new manufacturing trends amongst other sessions.
The three-day Forum will also include discussions on e-business, multimodal challenges, and the cargo hub of the future, as well as practical workshops on the new EU Customs rules and the latest security regulations.
“TIACA represents all sections of the air cargo supply chain and the ACF is a unique opportunity for logistics decision makers to find ways of moving cargo more efficiently, meet new suppliers, and network,” said Doug Brittin, Secretary General, TIACA.
“This year’s seminar and workshop series will tackle trends affecting our industry and give up-to-date information on regulations affecting us all.”
Exhibitors at this year’s ACF will include Atlas Air, Brussels Airport, and Chapman Freeborn, as well as Emirates SkyCargo, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Heavyweight Air Express and Forward Air, amongst others.
New this year for the ACF is CargoLinX, TIACA’s on-line meeting scheduler, which will allow visitors to schedule up to thirty 25-minute meetings with 45 leading global air cargo companies, weeks in advance of the event.
CargoLinX scheduler, in association with Qatar Airways, will be free to use for ACF visitors and exhibitors and meetings will be scheduled for the first two days of the show.
