Lucas Kuehner, Panalpina’s Global Head of Air Freight, and Jeannette Goeldi, globally responsible for the company’s standards and governance in the Air Freight division, have been elected to the boards of two global air cargo associations, namely The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) and Cargo 2000 (C2K), respectively. Their election ensures Panalpina remains at the forefront of important industry initiatives.
“We are delighted that Lucas Kuehner and Jeannette Goeldi have been elected to the boards of TIACA and C2K. They will bring our company’s vast air freight experience to the table and help drive changes in this industry, particularly in the area of e-freight and global quality standards,” says Karl Weyeneth, Panalpina’s Chief Operating Officer.
TIACA and Cargo 2000 are global non-profit associations that represent all the major players in the air cargo industry. Both organizations encourage participation from a wider group of stakeholders and are comprised of major airlines, freight forwarders, ground handling agents, trucking companies and IT providers. TIACA members are additionally made up of airports, customs brokers, aircraft and equipment manufacturers, educational institutions and the trade press.
The objective of Cargo 2000 is to improve the quality and efficiency of air cargo. Processes, backed by measurable quality standards, are implemented globally, and members are audited and certified. Panalpina was one of the founding members of Cargo 2000 and today holds gold membership status. Goeldi is the first woman on the board of Cargo 2000, which consists of representatives from five airlines and six freight forwarders.
