Air freight groups partner to improve security
The Airfreight Institute of FIATA (AFI) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) are forming a task force designed to improve the air freight security environment, which they say is increasingly complex and expensive and littered with measures that jeopardize cargo flows.
The Global Air Cargo Security Industry Task Force (GACSITF) will be jointly led by IATA and FIATA with an executive coordination team. Membership is open to all industry stakeholder associations.
“We are afraid that the new laws and regulation will over roll the air freight industry if we do not speak with one voice,” said Piet Timmermans, AFI executive member.
