The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has outlined four priorities for the future success of the air cargo industry, including accelerating the digitalisation of the supply chain, enforcing regulations for lithium batteries, more e

Speaking at the World Cargo Symposium, taking place in Dallas, USA, Glyn Hughes, IATA's global head of cargo, said: "Air cargo had an exceptional year in 2017 with 9 percent growth. And we expect a very healthy 4.5 percent expansion of demand in 2018.

"But we must accelerate the modernisation of processes, enforce regulations for the safe transport of lithium batteries and improve the efficiency of trade facilitation. Longer-term, we also need to inspire the next generation of talent. The air cargo industry has agreed to focus on these key areas and we must follow through."

According to IATA, its industry transformation programme, Simplifying the Business (StB) Cargo, is supporting the modernisation and digital transformation processes. IATA's Future Air Cargo Executives (FACE) programme aims at attracting, retaining and developing a diverse pool of young professionals to prepare them to become the next generation of leaders.
