TIACA’s 28th In­ter­na­tional Air Cargo Fo­rum and Ex­hi­bi­tion would pro­vide an op­por­tu­nity to the con­fer­ence par­tic­i­pants, vis­i­tors and ex­hibitors to pon­der on how to sail through the try­ing times. San­jiv Ed­ward, Chair­man, The In­ter­na­tional Air Cargo As­so­ci­a­tion (TIACA) says, “Var­i­ous in­dus­try pre­dic­tions sug­gest that the world­wide air cargo lo­gis­tics mar­ket will ex­pe­ri­ence a 5.97 per cent com­pounded an­nual growth rate through 2019.

One of the ma­jor fac­tors driv­ing the growth of the global air cargo mar­ket is the in­crease in the num­ber of on­line re­tail stores,” he ex­plained. IATA’s fore­cast sug­gests an av­er­age growth rate of 4.1 per cent per an­num.


Cur­rently, TIACA is look­ing at how to sim­plify the se­cu­rity pro­cesses by mak­ing sure that what­ever in­for­ma­tion is be­ing used is ac­cu­rate and goes on time. Se­condly, the in­ter­na­tional body is look­ing at stan­dard­i­s­a­tion of se­cu­rity equip­ment to bring man­u­fac­tur­ing and util­i­sa­tion cost down. “eFreight is an­other im­por­tant thing wherein we want to em­pha­sise more on em­brac­ing tech­nol­ogy to achieve speed. TIACA is driv­ing in terms of in­no­va­tion, process sim­pli­fi­ca­tion and tech­no­log­i­cal en­hance­ments,” he said.


“I see a lot can be done in terms of bring­ing ef­fi­ciency in the lo­gis­tics trade, re­duc­ing lo­gis­tics cost, im­prov­ing the time we usu­ally take and giv­ing our ex­porters and im­porters the edge in the lo­gis­tics. We need to in­ter­act with global or­gan­i­sa­tions,” Ed­ward ad­vo­cated.
