A 90 minute Webinar bringing together business leaders from leading airlines, ground handlers, airports and industry suppliers to discuss a blueprint for expanding cargo business and diversifying revenue streams in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The session will include an online audience Q&A and be chaired by GHI Conference Chairman, Max Gosney. Topics:
- Capitalising on the cargo capacity crunch: IATA figures show a 23% fall in capacity and belly space on passenger aircraft down by 43% and growing. So, what are the demands, both regulatory and financially, facing new market entrants into air cargo and where should interested parties start? How long until you achieve an ROI?
- Conversions: a post Covid-19 boom?: What are the business opportunities for airlines to diversify revenue streams through conversions in the aftermath of Covid-19? Does the launch of A321 and A320 freighters pave the way for a boom in lower volume, shorter haul, but higher value cargo transport in e-commerce and pharma?
- Kitting out for cargo handling: From new hi-loaders to upskilling ramp crews: we’ll explore what a ground handler needs to consider when developing a revenue stream in cargo. Can you boost business mix without needing a full warehouse operation? What are airlines looking for when picking a cargo handling partner?
- Technology and digitalisation in a post Covid-19 world: the session will examine whether the pandemic will provide the push the industry needs to implement e-AWBs and a more adventurous approach to adopting tech into cargo operations in general. What are the latest advances in ULD and track and trace software?
