Miami, FL, USA, Monday, 8th January 2018 – TIACA has signed three Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) with key Latin American organizations and has appointed a sales agent to further grow its presence in the region.

The MoUs are with Buenos Aires, Argentina-based Americas Alliance (AA), Bogotá, Colombia-headquartered Federation of National Associations of Cargo Agents and International Logistical Operators of Latin America and the Caribbean (ALACAT), and Santiago, Chile-based logistics provider AGUNSA.

“We are continuing our efforts to expand the geography of TIACA membership and connections, and these three MoUs are in line with our current policy of globalization and regional partnerships,” said Vladimir Zubkov, TIACA Secretary General.

TIACA has pledged to work with the three organizations on new air cargo events, training, and to promote industry best practice across Latin America.

“TIACA is the premier platform that brings the international logistics community together on all levels,” said Eric Hartmann, Vice President, AGUNSA.

“We at AGUNSA are proud to be working with TIACA expanding its presence in Latin America.

“Our objective is to bring South America closer to the world as we look to support the success of this year’s Air Cargo Forum in Toronto.”

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.
