Air cargo stakeholder group Cargo iQ has named Lothar Moehle as its new executive director.
He brings over four decades of experience in the air cargo and logistics sectors, including senior positions at UPS and DB Schenker and was one of the founders of the organisation in 1997, when it was originally named Cargo 2000. He will begin his term on 1 January 2022.
Together with chair Henrik Ambak and vice-chair Kerstin Strauss Cargo iQ also announced its renewed vision for 2022.
It pledged to help members to achieve five key objectives, starting with 100% reporting, to ensure ‘one version of the truth’ from end to end of the Master Operating Plan (MOP).
It also aims for 100% reporting and full transparency, ensuring Cargo iQ processes are fully implemented as members’ quality management systems, membership growth and retention, accelerating the development of new and revised processes and ensuring that members want to be involved and truly feel that the Cargo iQ processes are their own.
Cargo iQ will also push to recruit more small and medium-sized freight forwarders.
Lothar Moehle said: “Cargo iQ is one of the few organizations in the industry with all stakeholders working together on transparency, visibility and quality improvement, and I join the leadership team as we look to drive the organization in new directions, to achieve our ultimate goal of a quality-driven global supply chain.”
“The last 18 months have taught us, more than ever, to embrace digitalization for a seamless and transparent supply chain. Collaboration is key to us achieving that as an industry, and Cargo iQ provides a vital platform to achieve that collaboration.”
