Discover how to grow revenue at GHI’s Cargo Zone

With a boom in temporary aircraft cabin conversions since the Covid-19 crisis struck and demand for air cargo outstripping supply – there’s never been a better time to develop your cargo business offer.

GHI’s Cargo Zone will the examine the opportunities for the entrepreneurial to capture some desperately needed revenue from the cargo market during the pandemic and beyond.

GHI research showing 68% of airlines and handlers had looked to expand their business remit into cargo in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. And IATA has announced ‘an immediate and severe air capacity crunch’ this summer with a 28% fall in capacity compared to 2019 and insufficient airport facilities to handle goods.

GHI’ Cargo Zone will gather a host of industry leaders including cargo airlines and equipment suppliers to deliver case study-led seminars and product demonstrations on how to capture the market.

Workshop topics include:
  • Temporary cabin conversions, the air cargo capacity crunch and how to capitalise
  • GSE for cargo handling
  • The freighter conversions market: the impact of Covid-19
  • IT, load-planning and software solutions
  • Automated warehouse innovations and robotics
  • Staff training and bringing the workforce back safely

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.
