The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) will work closely with AMACARGA to expand its presence in Latin America and support the air cargo community in the region.
As part of the partnership, the two organisations will cooperate on their signature events including TIACA’s Air Cargo Forums 2018 and 2020, as well as explore joint training and network initiatives.
AMACARGA, the Mexican Association of Freight Forwarders will send a delegation to the 2018 ACF this October in Toronto, Canada to promote trade links and the airfreight industry in Mexico, whilst also looking to have a key presence at the 2020 event in Miami.
TIACA secretary general, Vladimir Zubkov says: “Mexico is a very important country which has seen rapid economic growth in recent years, and we are keen to forge closer links with the region to help promote and represent its expanding air cargo community.
“We believe closer collaboration will help exporters and importers in the region find new markets and will encourage the development of new airfreight links both within Latin America and between the rest of the world.”
The association is keen to build its presence in Latin America as part of its increased focus on areas that are outside the major airfreight markets, aiming to support growth and unify global standards throughout the world.
AMACARGA president, Gaby Altuzar says: “Technological advances and new developments such as logistics 4.0 have encouraged AMACARGA to seek out strategic alliances, to find new ways of improving our industry as well as training the next generation, to help us meet the challenges that these emerging trends set – which is why we established our partnership with TIACA.”
