LOS ANGELES – At this year’s Cool Chain Association Americas conference, Cathay Pacific Cargo’s Cargo Products Manager Gary Sze and VP for Cargo Americas Fred Ruggiero told Air Cargo World about evolving global perishables markets and Cathay’s plans to tap into these markets in the coming year.
Ground Team Red (GTR), a joint venture between Air Asia and SATS Ltd., has launched its new air cargo hub at Kuala Lumpur International Airport’s (KUL’s) Air Cargo Terminal 1 (KACT1).
If not for the fuel efficiency gains in flight this year, fuel burn and CO2 emissions would be 1.9% higher year-over-year, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) said in its semi-annual economic report on airline industry performance.
The most important point for every airline is to ensure sales and promotion of its unique brand in every market. The brand is composed of company culture, quality standards, own special features leading to individual product portfolio.
In today’s competitive environment the producers very often need to solve emergency situations affecting their regular supply chain material flow. Together with our partners we locate and position a dedicated aircraft capacity according to the customer’s requirements.
Except for the top-notch airlines in their home gateways, majority of carriers are dependant on their cargo handling agents, GHA for short. GHAs are responsible for accepting, storing and manifesting shipments for airlines' flights.
Sometimes more airlines are needed to make sure a shipment travels to the desired destination. Such cooperation is called interline and we like interlines a lot!
