Digital pioneer Lars Magnusson joins TIACA's Shipper's Advisory Committee as new Ericsson representative


TIACA welcomes Lars Magnusson, who brings extensive digitization experience to the Shippers Advisory Committee

Miami, Florida, USA, Monday, 16th July 2018 – Supply process development expert Lars Magnusson is joining TIACA’s Shippers Advisory Committee as the new Ericsson Industry and Society representative.

TIACA’s Shippers Advisory Committee is made up of representatives from different industries to encourage all sectors of the air cargo supply chain to engage in discussion and embrace new processes, technology, and greater transparency.

Magnusson is responsible for Business Architecture, Deliver, at Ericsson AB in Stockholm, Sweden, and has more than 25 years’ international experience in supply chain management, specializing in digitization.

“Digitalization is sweeping across the supply chain, as all sectors seek to update their systems and implement digital processes, so we are pleased to welcome Lars and his expertise to TIACA,” said Sebastiaan Scholte, Chairman, TIACA.

“Technological developments are an important consideration for TIACA as the logistics and transport industry continues to evolve, and the impact on the air freight supply chain will be a main topic at the Air Cargo Forum in Toronto in October.”

Magnusson is currently part of the American Production and Inventory Control Society (APICS) Digitization Task Force and was the former President of the APICS Supply Chain Council (SCC) Board, and previous Vice Chairman of the SCC Technical Development Steering Committee.

“TIACA is the only organisation representing all corners of the air freight supply chain and joining the Shippers Advisory Committee is an opportunity to help the industry improve digital processes and collaborate with colleagues from different sectors,” said Magnusson.

The appointment of Magnusson follows the announcement that Committee Vice Chairman Robert Mellin, will be stepping down from his role as Engagement Lead Logistics at Ericsson.

“We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Robert for his excellent work with TIACA in making the airfreight industry more efficient and competitive,” added Lars Droog, Chairman, TIACA’s Shippers Advisory Committee.

“It was Robert who started discussions on digitization, and with Lars we believe we have found a good successor who will realize the goals described in the White Paper.”

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.
