Blockchain and Big Data lead seminar debates at TIACA's 2018 Air Cargo Forum


Registration is now open, and the seminar line up announced for the three-day exhibition and conference in Toronto, Canada this October

Miami, Florida, USA, Friday, 20th April 2018 – The blurring line between logistics and technology services, and the transformational power of Blockchain and Big Data will take center stage at TIACA’s 2018 Air Cargo Forum (ACF) in Toronto, Canada from 16th – 18th October.

Logistics leaders and top business experts, including Dragon’s Den Canada host and OMX Founder Nicole Verkindt, will take to the stage for a series of lively discussions and debates during the three-day event at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

Registration is now open and exhibitors that have signed up for TIACA’s 29th international ACF include The Boeing Company, John F. Kennedy International Airport, Incheon International Airport Corporation, Halifax Partnership, Group ADP, DSV, the Canadian National Railway, and Chapman Freeborn.

“The air cargo industry is undergoing a transformation with a wave of new technology and disruptive innovation, and now more than ever it is crucial that we collaborate as well as stay informed with the latest developments,” said Vladimir Zubkov, TIACA Secretary General.

“Our ACF will bring together stakeholders from across the entire global supply chain, making it the perfect platform for networking and new business opportunities, and a chance to learn from logistics experts from across the spectrum.”

More than 4,000 delegates are expected to attend the exhibition and TIACA has teamed up with a number of associations and organizations in order to boost attendance to the biennial show.

For the first time the show will be co-located with the Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association (CIFFA) and the new Multimodal Americas show, bringing together leading logistics companies from across the entire logistics supply chain.

TIACA has also signed agreements with the Federation of National Associations of Cargo Agents and International Logistical Operators of Latin America and the Caribbean (ALACAT), Americas Alliance, AGUNSA, the African Airlines Association (AFRAA), the Airforwarders Association (AfA), and Neutral Air Partner.

The Animal Transport Association, I.E. Canada, AfA, and the Freight Management Association, representing hundreds of supply chain companies, will also hold Board meetings at the ACF.

The 2018 ACF workshop and seminar series includes debates exploring digital transformation in the airfreight industry, as well as air cargo’s value proposition, and how industry can work proactively with legislators to improve security.

Sessions looking at global trends, shippers’ concerns, and how to improve transparency and quality in the supply chain, as well as a discussion on training the next generation of airfreight leaders, will also feature in the seminar program.

The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) is the only organization representing all segments of the air freight supply chain.

Our not-for-profit association supports, informs, and connects companies and organizations of all sizes with the aim of developing an efficient, modern, and unified air cargo industry worldwide.

We champion every size of business, and help shape the policy which affects all of our members, providing a unifying voice for the industry, working for global standards, and raising the profile of air cargo.

We host two major events, the biennial Air Cargo Forum and the biennial Executive Summit, as well as organising training and career development programs.

TIACA aims to inform both the public and its membership about the role and importance of air cargo, industry developments, and technical trends.

We are members of the Global Air Cargo Advisory Group (GACAG), working with the International Air Transport Association (IATA), The International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA), and the Global Shippers’ Forum (GSF).

We are committed to representing and advocating the interests of the air cargo community at meetings of relevant regulatory bodies including the World Customs Organization (WCO), the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), and others that are open to trade observers.

Launched in the early 1990s, our roots go back to 1960, when a committee of the Society of Automotive Engineers in the USA launched the first Air Cargo Forum to explore the needs of the emerging air cargo industry.

TIACA is governed by its Trustee members, who in turn elect the Board of Directors to manage the organization’s affairs and establish its policy.

The Board of Directors manage and administer the organization, oversee the committee structure, and exercise executive authority over our events.

Our Secretariat is located in Miami, Florida, USA.
