Young air cargo leaders in Canada to benefit from TIACA's expanding internship scheme


TIACA’s Air Cargo Supply Chain Internship will support young professionals in Canada this summer, with backing from Air Canada Cargo

Toronto, Canada, Thursday, 28th June 2018 – Young airfreight professionals in Canada are to benefit from TIACA’s expanding Air Cargo Supply Chain Internship this summer, aimed at developing talent and encouraging increased collaboration in the supply chain.

This summer’s program is being headed by Air Canada Cargo, and involves staff from a number of Toronto-based logistics companies taking part in a series of visits at each other’s sites to learn and explore new ways of working together.

It is the second Air Cargo Supply Chain Internship TIACA has run in as many years, with a similar program having taken place last year involving six logistics companies in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

“Attracting and retaining new talent is key to our industry’s future, and training programs are an excellent way to add to airfreight’s appeal and to ensure our future leaders are fully prepared to take the reigns,” said Vladimir Zubkov, Secretary General, TIACA.

“TIACA takes great pride in its commitment to supporting and training the next generation of air cargo professionals, and we look forward to the program’s expansion into Canada ahead of our Air Cargo Forum there in October.”

The internship will take place in Toronto, the location city of the 2018 Air Cargo Forum, and will culminate in a panel discussion at the three-day event, which runs from 16th to 18th October at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

“We are proud to support the Air Cargo Supply Chain Internship program,” said Tim Strauss, Vice President, Air Canada Cargo.

“Innovative programs like these are necessary to ensure the supply chain industry attracts the talent it needs to continue thriving.

“Air Canada has a strong culture of training and development and understands the value of these types of programs.

“This is a fascinating industry that plays a central role in the global economy and offers a rich diversity of career paths for young professionals.

“We are happy to have the opportunity to showcase our industry and contribute to initiatives that help shape tomorrow’s air cargo leaders.”

In addition to the internship program, TIACA also runs a Professional Development Workshop Program aimed at growing management skills for air cargo professionals.

The workshop is designed by Strategic Aviation Solutions International (SASI) and gives participants an appreciation of the entire air cargo supply chain.

The core of Tigers’ culture centers around freedom, responsibility, performance and people development. Our combination of logistics expertise, global network and client centric work ethic, provides our customers with a truly unique customer experience.

Social Responsability

Tigers is a ‘Caring’ Company – We care for our people and our communities.  Our people are our biggest asset. We encourage open communication and continuous learning.  “Savages”  is  our  in-house leadership development program to nurture our employees to become future leaders.

Charity Contributions – We support Ubuntu Pathways in South Africa and Discover Urjaa Charitable Trust in India. We do this because it can take a child from learning how to create a simple spreadsheet, to coding a piece of software that could change the world.

Carbon Footprint – We minimize our CO2 footprint by stretching efficiency to its ultimate limits across our services portfolio. For instance, our hybrid Ship+ product decreases the reliance on air-only shipments and can reduce carbon footprint by as much as 50%.

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.
