The Cargo Network Services Corporation (CNS) Partnership Conference will be held from April 14-16 2024 under the theme: “Resilience Through Agility: Partnering for a Changing World”.

The conference at the Gaylord Resort & Convention Center in Dallas Fort Worth, Texas will bring together around 700 stakeholders and representatives from across the air cargo value chain, creating a forum for discussion and debate.

Keynote addresses will be given by:

  • Andres Bianchi, CEO, LATAM Cargo
  • Stephanie Abeler, Vice President of the Americas Region, Lufthansa Cargo

Plenary sessions will address:

  • The state of the industry
  • Sustainability in the cargo industry
  • Roadmap to digital transformation

The Innovation Stage, sponsored by Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, will cover the following topics:

  • Women in air cargo
  • The value of certification
  • Dangerous Goods
  • Building the cargo value chain workforce of the future
  • Warehouse space at airports

Air cargo positively contributes to the socio-economic development of the world and plays a critical role in overcoming extraordinary circumstances. During the Covid-19 pandemic, air cargo brought medical supplies and vaccines to where they were needed.

The sector delivers humanitarian aid in the wake of natural disasters such as earthquakes and floods, and today is a vital alternative to the Red Sea shipping lanes that face geopolitical disruptions.

Goods being flown by air keep the global economy moving. The 58m tonnes of air cargo delivered in 2023 accounted for approximately 35% of the value of goods traded internationally. This supports jobs around the globe and supports the UN Sustainable Development Goals—in particular reducing poverty and contributing to sustained and inclusive economic growth.

With air cargo volumes now firmly back to pre-pandemic levels, the challenge is to ensure efficient, safe, and sustainable growth.
