TIACA Hall of Fame celebrating air cargo champions opens for 2019 nominations


Nominations are now being accepted for TIACA’s annual Hall of Fame with the winner being formally inducted at the 2019 Executive Summit

MIAMI, FLORIDA, USA, THURSDAY JANUARY 24TH 2019 : TIACA is now accepting nominations for its annual Hall of Fame, which recognizes individuals who have made a huge difference to the global air cargo community.

The winning candidate will be celebrated at a gala event at the Association’s forthcoming Executive Summit in fall 2019, joining a long list of industry stalwarts from around the world.

“Since launching our Hall of Fame in 1997, we have recognized dozens of professionals who have played a pivotal role in the progress of aviation and helped to shape the industry as it is today,” said Vladimir Zubkov, Secretary General, TIACA.

“We encourage our members, as well as organizations and the press to put forward individuals they believe are deserving for consideration of this accolade.”

Inductees into the Hall of Fame are chosen by TIACA’s Chairman’s Council, which includes all past Chairmen and the association’s current Chairman.

Last year, Chris Leach, who founded global charter company Air Charter Service Ltd more than 30 years ago and oversaw its development into a multinational business, was inducted into the Hall of Fame at the 2018 Air Cargo Forum in Toronto, Canada.

Other past winners of the annual event include Desmond Vertannes, an acknowledged air cargo leader known for initiating change and innovating; and James ‘Jim’ Jackson, a driving force behind the standardization of Aircraft Unit Load Devices (ULD).

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.
