IAG Cargo has become the first international carrier to gain Platinum membership of the Airforwarders Association (AfA) – the organisation that represents the voice of the air freight forwarding industry.
As Platinum members, IAG Cargo will help to shape AfA policy and engage in advocacy on key legislation that affects the cargo industry, freight forwarders and airlines, making it an influential industry voice.
Other benefits of membership include affinity and training programmes, ISO certification, discounts on software products and legal advice. IAG Cargo can now also access to the AfA’s Industry News Service, which provides critical, up-to-date information on the global air cargo market and relevant legislation.
Joe LeBeau, VP commercial, North America at IAG Cargo said: “IAG Cargo is one of the world’s leading air cargo carriers and as such we only associate ourselves with the best. It is therefore a great pleasure and honour for us to be the first International carrier Platinum member of the Airforwarders Association. The global marketplace is more dynamic than ever and I believe IAG Cargo and the AfA are perfectly set up to grow for the long term.”
