Multimodal to host meeting of Cargo iQ Working Group

Multimodal 2017 seminars will include a series of debates focused on air cargo challenges and opportunities, and the event will play host to a meeting of Cargo iQ’s Working Group.

Air cargo leaders from across the globe, including Heathrow Airport’s Nick Platts, DB Schenker’s, Lothar Moehle, Air Canada Cargo’s, Mark Olney, and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol’s, Jonas van Stekelenburg will take part in panel discussions on improving airfreight quality and performance.

The air cargo sessions are part of three days of workshops and debates focusing on new regulations and emerging trends in the supply chain, organised in partnership with the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), the Freight Transport Association (FTA), and the United Kingdom Warehousing Association (UKWA) from 4-6 April at the Birmingham NEC.

Topics range from the impact of mega ships and alliances, Amazon’s logistics model, and rail freight opportunities, to briefings on Brexit, container weighing rules, and city logistics.

Cargo iQ executive director, Ariaen Zimmerman will be joining Global Shippers’ Forum (GSF) and director of global and European policy at the FTA, Chris Welsh for a panel discussion on improving quality on the air cargo industry on 5 April.

Cargo iQ and GSF recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding and will be exploring new ways of working together.

Zimmerman says: “Multimodal is a great opportunity to meet with all participants from the supply chain, from shipper, to forwarder, to airline. This aligns perfectly with our efforts to involve the complete air cargo industry in our performance programmes.

“We will be there with over 50 professionals from our membership in a three day working conference on our various initiatives. Being so close with the many visitors and events of Multimodal is a great way to keep close to the reality of our market and its needs.”

Over 300 exhibitors from across the logistics industry will take part in this year’s Multimodal, including Agility, Maritime Transport, Dachser, Malcolm Logistics, Kuehne + Nagel, Port of Dover, CMA CGM Group, Port of Antwerp, Yusen Logistics, and MSC.
