TIACA aims to drive the airfreight agenda
21 / 05 / 2015
TIACA’s new leadership team have outlined their vision for the group to members at a meeting in Miami.
Speaking at the association’s executive summit and annual general meeting in Miami, new chairman, Sanjiv Edward, and vice chairman, Sebastiaan Scholte, said TIACA should aim to drive the airfreight advocacy agenda, boost the association’s membership base and grow its education programme.
They said the association must take centre stage to “ensure that regulators have essential input from the industry” as they take decisions that affect all sectors of the airfreight supply chain.
Edward said: “TIACA has an essential role to play as the only association which truly represents every segment of the air cargo supply chain.”
“We must embrace change and work together to overcome the many challenges facing us and ensure a bright future for our industry.”
Scholte said that he would work closely with members to guarantee a healthy, stable future for TIACA and launch new initiatives to bring on the next generation of industry leaders.
“We will grow the membership base and further develop our education program,” he said.
“We must encourage and help develop young talent, and we will be looking to new ideas to do this.”
Edward and Scholte formally take over from current chairman and vice chairman, Oliver Evans and Enno Osinga, at the summit.
