Shippers from a cross-section of global industries have joined TIACA’s Shipper Advisory Committee, the Association announced at its Executive Summit (ES) recently.

Representatives from Chanel Fragrances and Beauté, Ericsson and Sandvik Machining Solutions will be joining Chairman Lars J.T. Droog, Manager – Supply Chain & General Affairs from Tosoh Corporation on the council.

Marine Harvest RMT and Teva Pharmaceutical Industries are also now members, with shippers from the automotive and flower sectors to be announced soon.

“We have representation from a wide range of industries who ship a significant amount by air globally to bring insight into shipper challenges, so that the industry can better collaborate and work towards slicker, safer supply chains,” said Droog.

The new council complements existing shipper organizations by expanding the opportunity to include all sectors of the global air cargo community, according to Doug Brittin, Secretary General, TIACA.

“TIACA represents all sections of the industry and we feel it is very important to provide this platform specifically for shippers to bring their concerns to the discussion table,” said Sanjiv Edward, TIACA Chairman and Head of Cargo Business, Delhi International Airport.
