The International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA) has announced it has accepted an invitation from The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) to give a forwarders’ perspective on logistics and supply chain issues at TIACA’s 25th International Air Cargo Forum & Exposition in Amsterdam on 3 November. FIATA will lead the opening session of the three-day forum and exhibition, which will be chaired by the Federation’s President, Jean-Claude Delen. Daniel Fernandez, Secretary General of TIACA, said: “Forwarders consistently rise to every challenge they are presented with, often in the face of declining yields, but we wanted to get their view on how they see the future of their customer and airline relationships. The session will explore the role of the traditional forwarder in today’s marketplace against the backdrop of 3PL and 4PL multi-national logistics service providers and also ask if shippers see sufficient value from forwarders to want to pay a fair market price for their services.” “We are proud to have attracted FIATA as a supporting organization of our Air Cargo Forum in Amsterdam. There is no greater authority in our industry when it comes to understanding, promoting and working to protect the international freight forwarding community. As TIACA works to increase its focus on the freight forwarding sector, we hope this is the start of an ongoing business partnership that can take advantage of the respective strengths of our associations.”
