Secretary General, Air Cargo Agents Association of India (ACAAI)
If you think of a cargo kitchen, we have all the ingredients and fantastic set up and even recipe. What we need is a cargo chef to come and cook. So, what we need today is to deliver. We already had so much analysis and research and now it is the time to implement the ideas. Today, the shipment by air is the fastest mode of transportation. Sea freight has improved from weeks to days. So, we need to definitely come from days to hours and for this we require lots of programmes to be brought into action. Time is very important; we need to keep time factor in mind. Today, we need to make things happen fast. Regulators have become facilitators and facilitators will facilitate but through a system. The systems need to be upgraded. The key concern of the industry is that we need a robust and dynamic system. e-integration of all facilitators; we need to bring them under one roof. Smaller airports should also have automated system.
