Cargo iQ signs quality pact with forwarders and airports


Airfreight quality standards organization Cargo iQ has signed a deal with the International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations (FIATA) and the Airport Services Association (ASA) for the latter two’s director generals to attend its board meetings as observers and to work together to improve practices across the supply chain.

FIATA represents 40,000 forwarders and logistics firms around the world, while the ASA has 50 global members in the aviation services industry.

FIATA director general, Stéphane Graber (pictured below), said: “FIATA is thrilled to be participating in the board meetings of Cargo iQ, and to join with the group and ASA to drive global standards. This collaboration is a key initiative in the optimization of air cargo processes for all logistics supply chain stakeholders involving air freight.”

ASA director general, Fabio Gamba (main picture), added: “This initiative from Cargo iQ to offer FIATA and ASA an observer seat at their board is spot on. The cargo value chain is a very complex one, and only a truly holistic approach, involving all the major stakeholders, will work.”
