TIACA creates new shipper advisory group
07 / 03 / 2016
TIACA has created a new Shippers’ Advisory Committee to be chaired by Lars Droog of Tosoh Corporation.
The new group aims to make improvements to the air cargo supply chain with the interests of the shipper in mind.
“The voice of the shipper is all too often missing from the global conversation on freight, and I am excited to be establishing a platform for communication within TIACA, which represents all sectors of the air cargo chain,” said Droog.
“I am looking forward to bringing the vision and ideas of the shipping community to the discussion table so that we can work together to improve our industry.”
TIACA chairman Sanjiv Edward added: “Shipper feedback is paramount in any effort to improve the air freight supply chain.
“TIACA has set-up this Shippers’ Advisory Committee to act as a bridge, understanding the shipper requirements on end and then taking them back to the players in the airfreight supply chain, for creating effective and quality solutions.”
Droog holds a bachelor degree in business administration from Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (Economics & Management) and has almost two decades of experience in the aviation sector, including senior management roles with Polar Air Cargo, Schreiner Aviation Group, and Asiana Airlines.
He is also vice chairman of Dutch shipper group EVO’s airfreight and express council.
