TIACA promotes e-Freight on new website
24 / 07 / 2015
TIACA has launched a new website with added benefits for members including an industry scorecard to help with the drive towards e-freight.
The new site includes a range of features such as improved networking opportunities, while the industry scorecard highlights some of the key benefits and challenges for various e-commerce initiatives.
“TIACA is committed to delivering value for its members and the new website has a lot more to offer,” said Doug Brittin, Secretary General, TIACA.
“Networking is a core pillar for us and the site provides more opportunities to connect and grow business as well as keeping up to date with issues which affect members’ daily business.”
The new site features an enhanced members directory with more detailed profiles, social media feeds, and instant messaging.
Members also have the opportunity to post press releases with company news on the site and, from September will be invited to contribute to a community blog.
TIACA’s new e-Freight Industry Scorecard is hosted in the knowledge zone and identifies the key benefits and challenges for each sector of various e-commerce initiatives.
“Our objective is to promote greater understanding throughout the supply chain of each segment’s perspective of the issues in order to facilitate digitalisation efforts throughout the industry and the ultimate goal of a paperless air cargo supply chain,” said Sue Presti, senior director of government affairs, TIACA.
“It is an organic document and we encourage members to give us feedback.”
Members can refer to the site for regular updates on TIACA news including seminar details for the Air Cargo Forum, which takes place in October 2016 in Paris.
Separately, TIACA has warned its members about unsolicited emails offering discounted membership dues.
In a circular to members, TIACA secretary general Doug Brittin states: “It has come to our attention that some of you may have received an unsolicited email offering a discount on membership dues from the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
“This message was neither authorized nor sent by TIACA.
“Please note: TIACA emails are sent from email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org email addresses. If you have any questions in regards to this matter, please contact the Secretariat.”
