The International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA) and the International Cargo Handling Coordination Association (ICHCA) have renewed their Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which will see the two organisations pursue common goals.

The identified areas for collaboration include engaging all actors in safety and security-related topics, the digitalisation of the supply chain, the improvement and reinforcement of operational efficiency, and regulatory and policy developments around the world that may impact on the activities of the supply chain.

Basil Pietersen, FIATA president, said: “Cooperation with key industry organisations is critical to the safe and efficient performance of today’s increasingly complex supply chains… The renewal of our MoU with ICHCA provides a valuable opportunity to strengthen our collaboration and review our common goals. As we set sail into this new chapter of our partnership, I am confident that we will achieve the objectives set in this new cooperation agreement.”
