The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) and Airports Council International (ACI) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to improve the overall level of safety, efficiency and sustainability of cargo operations within the airport ecosystem.

The MoU will focus on the development of joint advocacy programmes in the context of ICAO events, aimed at facilitating the sustainable growth and development of the aviation industry and with a focus on cargo; cooperation in the establishment of joint programmes or mutual support of industry initiatives, in particular in the domains of aviation workforce and social sustainability; and mutual support for and collaboration across actions and initiatives aiming to achieve the industry agreed goal of net zero emissions by 2050.

TIACA and ACI will also focus on participation in each other’s working groups and committees as necessary, to provide industry expertise and strategic orientation where appropriate; collaborating on the establishment of relevant industry guidance material and technical recommendations on topics of use for the respective memberships; cross-promotion of relevant activities, such as events or publications, to each other’s membership or relevant governance bodies; and sharing of relevant documents, data and information as needed in the context of the Parties work programmes.

“Efficient and sustainable cargo operations at airports are crucial to the global economy and the well-being of communities worldwide,” stated Luis Felipe de Oliveira, director general and chief executive, ACI World.

“We are pleased to be strengthening cooperation with TIACA to improve the overall levels of safety, efficiency, and sustainability of cargo operations. Through joint advocacy, programs, and initiatives, our collective efforts will contribute to a more efficient aviation ecosystem for all.”

TIACA director general Glyn Hughes added: “Cooperation with organizations like ACI is essential to the mission to our association. It allows both bodies to better serve their members and the industry. We are excited to get to work and create strong synergies between the two organizations, particularly in the area of sustainability.”
