International Air Cargo Forum helps put Atlanta back in the spotlight

Today’s the final day of Air Cargo Forum 2012 and it’s been a great week for the air cargo community.

Along with plenty of interesting debates on tackling the industry’s key challenges globally, the show has helped to put the host city of Atlanta back in the spotlight.

In his ACF 2012 welcome notes, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed wrote that from hosting the first TIACA in 1962 to being named Air Cargo Week’s Airport of the Year in 2009 and 2010, Atlanta has a long history of leadership in the air cargo industry.

More than 200 million people, 80 per cent of US consumers, are within two hours’ flight time from Hartsfield-Jackson, or one day’s trucking by highway – so it’s easy to see why Atlanta is so important in terms of supply chain logistics.

According to TIACA, more than 19,000 direct and indirect jobs in the Atlanta area are related to the airport’s air cargo operations.

As we blogged last week, Chapman Freeborn has seen promising growth in the Atlanta market for aircraft charter and on board courier services  – hence the launch of our new office in the city earlier this year (in addition to our US headquarters in Fort Lauderdale and further offices in Houston and Washington DC).

It’s a shame that the Atlanta event is drawing to a close but were already looking forward to the next Air Cargo Forum event in 2014 – with South Korea’s Incheon International Airport playing host.

If you are at the show today and want to find out more about what our team can offer make sure you visit Stand 1332.
