CARGO IQ SIGNS UP MEMBER AVIANCA CARGO AS IT GROWS FOOTPRINT IN LATIN AMERICA


The cargo carrier commits to driving global standards to strengthen its processes and looks to support regional and global uptake of Cargo iQ membership

Geneva, Switzerland, Wednesday 19th July 2023: Air cargo quality standards organization Cargo iQ has welcomed member Avianca Cargo (Avianca) to its community.

Effective immediately, the cargo carrier will begin working with Cargo iQ and with its own customers towards their shared goal for enhanced best practices in the air cargo supply chain.

“Our main motivation for joining is that we share a common mission with Cargo iQ and that is the constant quest to apply common global standards and improve quality to promote a better global air cargo industry,” said Leonel Ortiz, Head of Cargo Development, Avianca Cargo.

“In addition, it is also aligned with our purpose to strengthen our processes, elevate our value proposition, generate efficiencies, and ensure higher quality of products and services to our customers.”

The airline will help its partners and suppliers adhere to international standards and practices to ensure efficiency in the overall supply chain, to drive improved service quality control.

“We welcome Avianca Cargo to the Cargo iQ community at this important moment in our global expansion,” said Lothar Moehle, Executive Director, Cargo iQ.

“As Cargo iQ grows its representation in the Latin America region, Avianca Cargo will be supporting our efforts to bring more actors in the chain on board and align them to Cargo iQ standards.”

As a member, Avianca will contribute to projects that look for ways to close data gaps and protect shipment quality, collaborating with other members in the industry.

“This will facilitate the exchange of best practices and experiences that will contribute to further strengthening our processes and efficiencies,” said Ortiz.

“In an industry where reliability and visibility are critical factors, building these capabilities and being part of a recognized organization can make a difference in customer preference.”

By staying up to date with the latest trends and best business practices in the ever-evolving air cargo transportation industry, Cargo iQ membership will support Avianca’s goal to remain competitive and position itself as a safe, reliable partner in the market.

This month, Cargo iQ also announced the joining of new Strategic Associate member airline IT solutions provider Hitit, as the organization continues to grow its membership base across the supply chain.

About Cargo iQ

Cargo iQ is a not-for-profit quality standards group working to create and implement specifications to enhance the customer service experience of the global air cargo industry.

Originally founded by leading airlines and forwarders to improve reliability in the supply chain, Cargo iQ membership has grown to include more than 60 members from across the industry during its 25+ years of operation, including airlines, forwarders, ground handlers, IT solution providers, and Road Feeder Services (RFS), incorporating the small- to medium-sized (SME) community.

Members work together to develop a system of shipment planning and performance monitoring for air cargo based on common business processes and milestones. This Quality Management System (QMS) drives continuous improvement in member operations and forms the cornerstone of Cargo iQ’s work.

Members are externally audited at regular intervals for quality compliance as proof of their commitment to delivering quality-driven services and supporting real-time service delivery.

As part of that system, the Cargo iQ Master Operating Plan (MOP), which has been endorsed by the International Air Transport Association (IATA), defines the standard end-to-end process of transporting air cargo.

The organization is supported by IATA as one of its interest groups.

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.
