The seventh World Cargo Symposium (WCS) will be held at Doha from 12-14 March 2013. Hosted by Qatar Airways, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) meet’s theme will be ‘Action for Sustainability’.

Announcing the Doha meet where more than 1000 air cargo executives are expected to attend, Des Vertannes, IATA’s global head of cargo pointed out that the discussions will focus on improving the sustainability of air cargo through an agenda for improving safety, security, efficiency and quality. “These are big issues. And we can only tackle them by building consensus across the complex air cargo value chain,” said Vertannes. The last WCS was held at Kuala Lumpur this year.
