Air cargo organisation TIACA is continuing to expand its global presence by signing three Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Latin American organisations.

The MoUs are with Buenos Aires, Argentina-based Americas Alliance (AA), Bogotá, Colombia-headquartered Federation of National Associations of Cargo Agents and International Logistical Operators of Latin America and the Caribbean (ALACAT), and Santiago, Chile-based logistics provider AGUNSA.

AGUNSA has also been appointed as TIACA’s sales agent for Latin America, to "encourage companies in the region to attend and exhibit at TIACA’s events and to grow membership".

“We are continuing our efforts to expand the geography of TIACA membership and connections, and these three MoUs are in line with our current policy of globalisation and regional partnerships,” said Vladimir Zubkov, TIACA Secretary General.

TIACA has pledged to work with the three organisations on new air cargo events, training, and to promote industry best practice across Latin America.

“Sebastiaan Scholte, TIACA chairman, added: "Latin America is an important growing region where up till now TIACA did not have that much exposure.

“With the partnership with these three highly regarded organizations we are expanding our presence in Latin America.”

TIACA recently signed an MoU with the African Airlines Association (AFRAA) as part of its global expansion drive.
