By Rachelle Harry

At the first Madrid Air Cargo Day, organised by Foro Madrid Cargo in collaboration with Spanish airport operator Aena and IATA, more than 100 industry experts gathered to explore the theme: modernisation of the airfreight world – projects, challenges and trends.

Keynote speakers included David Bellon, vice president of Air Cargo Belgium, and Sara Van Gelder from the Brussels Airport Company, who jointly gave a presentation about the emergence of Air Cargo Belgium as a cluster organisation.

Further presentations from IATA and Aena, as well as a panel discussion about e-commerce, completed the conference programme.

In his closing speech, Jesus Cuellar, chairman of Foro Madrid Cargo and sales director at DB Schenker Spain, praised the presence of the Belgian colleagues for their presentation and pointed out that a similar association in Madrid would be crucial to meet the challenges of the future.
