Wings for Aid scoops TIACA Award

By Damian Brett

Wings for Aid has been named as the first winner of TIACA’s first sustainability award, sponsored by CHAMP Cargosystems.

The award was presented at the TIACA executive summit held in Budapest. Earlier in the day, the three finalists – M&G Packaging Corp, Nallian and Wings for Aid Foundation – presented their projects for the final selection.

Wings for Aid is a foundation with the aim to “reach people anywhere”. They created a self-landing cardboard delivery box which can be dropped from a drone to bridge the last mile to people in need as a result of humanitarian crises.

TIACA chairman Steven Polmans said: “Congratulations to Wings for Aid and to all the participants. We had three winners on stage. This first Award was a real success and supports the vision of Sustainability and the three pillars (Planet, People, Prosperity).

“The finalists’ presentations were the concrete demonstration of it. Including the vote of the attendees in the final mark show exactly the way we, as TIACA, want to work on Sustainability and on other topics: in collaboration and together with the industry.”
