Get yourself in trim: check out the GHI Cargo Zone

GHI Cargo Zone

Help discover specialist business boosting advice on developing this core aspect of today’s aviation business mix.

We know that more than 60% of our delegates have a business remit in cargo handling. Whether it’s a full warehouse operation or the final loading of ULDs and pallets onto aircraft on the apron – the safe and efficient movement of cargo matters to our airline and ground handling customers.

So, GHI’s Cargo Zone will offer targeted advice on improving cargo operations, as well as discussing the opportunities to share best practice tools and techniques with passenger focused ground handling services.
What will GHIs Cargo Zone include?
  • The Cargo Zone will comprise a dedicated area of the show floor and feature a bespoke workshop speaker theatre, plus supplier stands offering cargo handling equipment and services.
  • Specialist advice on enhancing your cargo offer:  a dedicated workshop theatre will offer how-to advice on key cargo handling topics including: automation, ULD care, the move to paperless and implementing e-airway bills, track and trace; VR/AR in load control; dangerous goods; cool chain for temperature sensitive cargo; security; and many more.
  • Discover cargo relevant products: enjoy the chance to liaise with industry suppliers within the zone who are offering bespoke cargo equipment and services from load planning software to warehouse racking, cargo dollies and forklift trucks.

Enhanced One-to-one Meeting opportunities with cargo airline buyers: more attendees from airline cargo procurement teams available for your meeting requests 
Keynote Conference programme debate on the common challenges facing PAX and Cargo operations: what can we learn from one another’s operation?

All of our delegates will enjoy complimentary access to the Cargo Zone and workshop seminars taking place within it.

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!
