CIFFA to partner with TIACA for ACF 2018


The Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association (CIFFA) will partner with The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) and Multimodal Americas at the Air Cargo Forum (ACF) in Toronto in October 2018.

It comes hot on the heels of Vladimir Zubkov formally taking over the helm as TIACA’s new secretary general, replacing Doug Brittin, who retired at the end of last year.

CIFFA, which celebrates its 70th anniversary in 2018, will take part in the exhibition and host a conference complementing the seminars and workshops organised by TIACA and Multimodal Americas.

Zubkov says: “TIACA’s Air Cargo Forum provides a platform for all sectors of the industry to network, do business, and learn from the experts.

“Our partnership with CIFFA and Multimodal Americas strengthens the event, and we will be working together in the months to come to put together a compelling program.

“We are looking forward to the many opportunities this collaboration will deliver for all of our members and for the industry at large.”

CIFFA executive director, Ruth Snowden says: “Our mandate is to deliver value to membership.With this global event and CIFFA’s conference focus on innovation and inspiration, everyone who attends will come away enriched.”

Established in 1948, CIFFA represents some 260 international freight forwarding firms across Canada.

Clarion Events, owners of both the Multimodal UK Exhibition, and the Supply Chain and Logistics Summits, will launch its new Multimodal Americas show alongside the 2018 ACF.
