US Secretary of Transportation gets Air Cargo Forum 2012 underway

The International Air Cargo Association’s (TIACA) International Air Cargo Forum got underway in Atlanta yesterday and reports from the first day were all very positive.

The show was launched with a keynote speech from Ray LaHood, US Secretary of Transportation – reflecting the growing recognition of air cargo’s vital role in world trade and economic development, as well as its importance to the host city.

Elsewhere, industry forum sessions were led by presidents and CEOs from airlines including Delta Air Lines, Atlas Air Worldwide and UPS Airlines, as well as senior figures from organisations including  the International Civil Aviation Organization and the Airforwarders Association.

The event is being held at the famous Georgia World Congress Center, located in downtown Atlanta. Over the three days ACF 2012 is expected to attract over 5,000 business leaders from all aspects of the air cargo industry, representing over 100 countries.

The Chapman Freeborn cargo charter team at the event also report high levels of visitor traffic in the trade floor area where 200 companies are showcasing their air cargo services.

We’ll be posting updates from day two of the show – and if you’re at the event and would like a meeting or further information contact roberto.berrios@chapman-freeborn.com
