Get yourself in trim

GHI’s Cargo Zone is back and set to explore the surge in cargo handling opportunities created by the Covid pandemic.

The Zone will feature a dedicated seminar theatre where leading industry players will discuss big cargo challenges including digitisation; skills shortages and the rise of e-commerce.

The Cargo Zone will also facilitate premium networking opportunities between airlines, ground handlers, freight forwarders and suppliers looking to explore cargo business growth. Leading cargo GSE and IT suppliers will be exhibiting beside the Zone to help educate attendees on bespoke cargo business solutions.

So, if you are interested in discovering expert advice on enhancing your cargo business mix then ensure you visit GHI’s Cargo Zone at the 23rd Annual, at the RAI Amsterdam.

Key Cargo Zone seminar theatre topics for 2022 include:
  • Investigating e-commerce and the opportunities for the aviation supply chain
  • After the pandemic: cargo revenue has more than tripled for airlines during the Covid crisis- but what will the return of pax volumes mean for air cargo on the apron?
  • Sustainability: how does air cargo rise to the challenge?
  • GSE innovations for air cargo
  • Solving the cargo skills challenge: how do we attract and retain quality people?
  • Digitisation and automation: driving efficiency through IT solutions
  • What freight forwarders want: added value partnerships with carriers and handlers

We applaud the move to bring a specialist Cargo Zone to a conference that’s become the community hub for the world’s ground handling industry. Cargo and passenger handling bring very different challenges… but we are ultimately part of the same family. This is an outstanding opportunity for the industry to come together and learn from one another’s product.

GHI is the most important organizer of ground handling conferences in aviation. To add the fascinating world of cargo will be beneficial to everyone in this industry. Its inclusion is yet another fine reason to be in Amsterdam in November 2019.

Cargo and with it high quality cargo handling is a fundamental part of the airline business whether you are transporting cargo on full freighters or utilizing belly capacity on passenger aircraft. The GHI Cargo Zone offers us a great forum to discuss some of the challenges and opportunities with our ground handling partners and airport colleagues.

The addition of an air cargo ‘zone’, to the annual GHI conference in Amsterdam later this year,is an exciting and probably overdue enhancement to what is the industry leading event for the ground handling sector. Many handlers have significant cargo terminal operations, in addition to their ramp and passenger handling activities and I’m sure they would welcome the opportunity to meet both suppliers and potential customers at this major event.

The Cargo Zone at The 21st Annual Conference provides a great opportunity at a proven platform and forum for our team to widen our interaction with our global partners for both ground and cargo handling services….and no better place to start than Amsterdam!
