Congestion and labor are top topics for Aircargo 2023


Supply chain congestion and labor challenges will top the conference agenda at The Airforwarders Association’s Aircargo 2023 event in Nashville, Tennessee on February 12-14.

AIT Worldwide Logistics chief executive Vaughn Moore will give a keynote address which will be followed by AfA’s annual general meeting

Ten speakers from federal government agencies and the private sector will bring AfA members up to date on key developments.

AfA executive director, Brandon Fried, said: “In recent times, we have all felt the pain of industry capacity constraints compounded by global events, from geopolitical uncertainty to rising fuel prices and ongoing challenges related to Covid.

“AirCargo 2023 will provide a vital opportunity for industry stakeholders to exchange insight that will help us to navigate current hurdles and plan for a sustainable future for the sector.”

Panels and presentations will offer perspectives on volumes, mergers and acquisitions, and predictors of the future to how to stay agile and resilient against a backdrop of congestion, changing regulations, and increasing demand.

A panel will also explore emerging technologies to support all-important digitization and automation of air cargo, while a women’s networking event aims to support diversity in the sector.

A total of 85 exhibitors are registered to participate in the AirCargo trade show, including DHL, Dallas Fort Worth Airport, United Cargo, IATA, and the FAA.

AirCargo 2023 is brought together by the AfA, Airports Council International-NA (ACI-NA), and Air & Expedited Motor Carriers Association (AEMCA), and is supported by 50 sponsors.

This year’s event will take place at the Omni Nashville Hotel, Nashville, Tennessee February 12-14, 2023.
