CARGO IQ NAMES LOTHAR MOEHLE AS NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR AND ANNOUNCES 2022 STRATEGY


Moehle brings more than 40 years’ experience in logistics to the lead role as the organization announces its 2022 objectives

Geneva, Switzerland, Wednesday 13th October 2021: Cross-stakeholder air cargo organization Cargo iQ has named Lothar Moehle as its new Executive Director, attendees at the organization’s virtual press conference heard today.

Moehle brings over four decades of experience in the air cargo and logistics sectors, including senior positions at UPS and DB Schenker.

He was also one of the founding fathers of Cargo 2000, the original name for Cargo iQ when it was launched in 1997.

“Cargo iQ is one of the few organizations in the industry with all stakeholders working together on transparency, visibility and quality improvement, and I join the leadership team as we look to drive the organization in new directions, to achieve our ultimate goal of a quality-driven global supply chain,” said Moehle.

“The last 18 months have taught us, more than ever, to embrace digitalization for a seamless and transparent supply chain.

“Collaboration is key to us achieving that as an industry, and Cargo iQ provides a vital platform to achieve that collaboration.”

Joined by Cargo iQ Chair Henrik Ambak and Vice-Chair Kerstin Strauss, the Cargo iQ board also announced their renewed vision for Cargo iQ in 2022.

“In 2021 the Cargo iQ management team and working groups have been busy laying the groundwork for the organization, and 2022 will focus on the implementation work, collaborating directly with members and sharing best practices,” said Henrik Ambak, Senior Vice President Cargo Operations Worldwide, Emirates.

Under their renewed vision, Cargo iQ will be helping members to achieve five key objectives, starting with 100% reporting, to ensure ‘one version of the truth’ from end to end of the Master Operating Plan (MOP).

Cargo iQ, which is an International Air Transport Association (IATA) special interest group, has developed the MOP to define the standard end-to-end process of transporting air cargo, which has been endorsed by IATA.

Cargo iQ’s full list of five objectives for 2022 include:

  • Achieving 100% reporting and full transparency
  • Ensuring Cargo iQ processes are fully implemented as members’ Quality Management System (QMS)
  • Enhancing adoption of the Cargo iQ methodology through membership growth and retention
  • Accelerating the development cycle for new and revised processes, ensuring that Cargo iQ stays relevant snd makes use of emerging technologies
  • Ensuring that members want to be involved and truly feel that the Cargo iQ processes are their processes

Cargo iQ will also drive its strategy to recruit more Small and Medium-sized Enterprise (SME) freight forwarders to the Cargo iQ community.

“Cargo iQ will be implementing its previously trialed SME solution to offer improved planning and control capabilities to small and medium sized forwarders who work with member airlines on a small-scale or regional basis,” said Kerstin Strauss, Vice President Air Logistics Operations, Global Air Logistics, Kuehne + Nagel.

The organization also welcomed its latest member and recent entrant to the cargo sector, Nigerian aviation services provider Aglow Aviation, which pledged its commitment to global best practices by joining Cargo iQ in September.

Moehle will begin his term as Executive Director on January 1, 2022, as Cargo iQ celebrates its 25th year.

Our Vision

The objective of SESAR is to modernise European ATM by defining, developing and delivering new or improved technologies and procedures (SESAR Solutions).

SESAR’s vision builds on the notion of trajectory-based operations’ and relies on the provision of air navigation services (ANS) in support of the execution of the business or mission trajectory — meaning that aircraft can fly their preferred trajectories without being constrained by airspace configurations.

SESAR Deployment Manager

The SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) function is defined by the Article 9 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) N°409/2013. Under the oversight of the European Commission, the SDM function consists of the synchronisation and the coordination of the deployment of the Common Projects. A Common Project is a Commission Implementing Regulation which mandates the implementation of the most essential operational changes in the European ATM Master Plan by the Member States of the European Union and their operational stakeholders. The first Common Project is known as the Pilot Common Project (PCP) and is defined by the Regulation (EU) N°716/2014. The SDM synchronises and coordinates implementation against the SESAR Deployment Programme which is a project view of the Common Projects organizing their implementation into optimum sequences of activities by all the stakeholders required to implement. To develop and maintain the SESAR Deployment Programme in close consultation with all the stakeholders is another important task under the SDM function.
