TIACA and Air Cargo Belgium launch masterclass on digitization and data sharing as catalysts for growth


The two-day course takes place next month at Brussels Airport and offers insight into the latest technological trends and developments in air cargo

Miami, Florida, USA, Friday, December 7th 2018 – TIACA and Air Cargo Belgium, the community organisation at Brussels Airport, have teamed up to offer a masterclass next month exploring how the air cargo supply chain can leverage digital transformation and data sharing as enablers for growth.

The ‘Connected Air Cargo Masterclass’ will feature important debates including building a connected air cargo community, using technology as an enabler, and digital transformation best practice, when it takes place at BRUcargo’s Air Cargo Academy in Brussels, Belgium, from January 30th to 31st.

The Masterclass will also include a seminar on the story of BRUcloud, an open data sharing platform that enables the different stakeholders to work more “integrated” and act as a network.

“We are living in a period of great change for the airfreight industry, and it is imperative that supply chain professionals learn how to take advantage of emerging technologies and trends, as well as explore new ways of collaborating,” said Steven Polmans, Vice Chairman, TIACA, and Head of Cargo and Logistics at Brussels Airport Company.

“Attendees have the option of attending an additional session, ‘From theory to practice, getting started with collaborative apps’, which looks at how to put theory into practice and even includes live demonstrations, when it takes place on February 1st.”

In addition to the Masterclass, TIACA offers the Professional Development Workshop Series, which are co-organised by the Strategic Aviation Solutions International (SASI).

The training programme covers a range of topics from building management skills to insight sharing sessions about the whole supply chain.

Earlier this year, TIACA teamed up with UK-based aviation consultancy TSA Group for an extensive training program for air cargo professionals, including the development of several new courses aimed at providing participants with a complete overview of the aviation industry.

TIACA also runs the Air Cargo Supply Chain Internship program, which organizes week-long visits for young participants between various air cargo companies, aimed at developing talent and building connections.
