Angel On My Shoulders
    They say the battle for air cargo is won or lost in the last quarter mile between the cargo facility and the aircraft hold.
     Nobody has to tell that to Vice President, United Cargo Global Operations Angel Ramirez.

The Six Who Did Not Return
     A 12-man crew delivering a routine air cargo shipment of construction materials from Oslo to Bamako Mali aboard a Volga Dneper AN-124-100 aircraft were ruthlessly attacked as they billeted overnight inside the Bamako Mali Radisson Blu Hotel last Friday. 

Security Needs Unified Approach
The cowardly attacks by ISIS terrorists in the heart of Europe continue to raise more questions than answers. 
     Common sense demands that describing the attackers as “Muslim terrorists” is a gross insult to the roughly 1.6 billion Muslim faithful who want nothing to do with the perverted interpretations brought forward by ISIS Jihadists.

Thanksgiving in America

Healthy Supply Chains Wanting
    When talking Pharma, nearly everybody has a plan, a cooler, a flight, or a better idea. The Air Freight industry is always seeking supply chain solutions to serve the health care business. But the air cargo industry may have been given an important tool on the road to deeper development into health care. 

Charge of Lithium Transports
     As we continue our exclusive, in-depth coverage of the never-ending story of Lithium Batteries and air cargo, it should be noted that as recently as last week, FT wrote about the ICAO DGP's decision to essentially not introduce further limitations regarding the transport of lithium batteries.
      Although the joint paper presented by ICCAIA and IFALPA was rebuffed out of hand, other measures have been adopted.

People @aircargoamericas
One thing can be said for people in air cargo: they know how to have a good time, and you could see the good time they were having at Air Cargo Americas in Miami.
     Of course, it gets late early at Air Cargo Americas, with the partying starting at the show’s opening—the Latin rhythms always deliver an on-time take off to the big events.

Does IATA CEIV Hold Water?
    Lately we have been hearing about the IATA Center of Excellence for Independent Validators (CEIV).
     To date, a few carriers have embraced CEIV Pharma and two gateways—BRU and MIA—have announced certification as well. 
     But what is CEIV Pharma?

Atlanta Customs Brokers Host Turkey Feast
On Friday, November 20, in Atlanta, Georgia, a grand airport tradition occurs as Atlanta Customs Brokers & Freight Forwarders throw open their doors for a couple of hours starting at high noon to share the love. It’s an open house where everybody is invited for a free, old-fashioned turkey dinner.

People @ Air Cargo Americas
    Managing Director of AA Cargo's Latin America Sales Division Carmen Taylor (L) and President of World Trade Center Miami Charlotte Gallogly have individually had tremendous impact not only on Miami and Latin America, but on the history of air cargo as well.  
    "Everybody thinks that DHL is just an express carrier, but we are here to say DHL Aviation moves all types of big and small consignments," said Sales & Customer Services Manager Martha De Almeida Santos and Business Development Director Xavier Cerruto.

Elegy For Paris
     We stand with France as deep sadness, grief, alarm, and resolve spread around the world after the senseless terrorist attacks and random murders in Paris on Friday, November 13.

AAPA Into Ring of Fire
   On Friday this week the Association of Asia Pacific Airlines hosts its grandly titled Assembly of Presidents meeting at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Bali, Indonesia. The timing is not fortuitous.
    Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport, one of the busiest in South East Asia due to the island’s draw as a global tourism destination of some renown, has only been open intermittently since the start of November. The cause? An erupting volcano on the neighboring island of Lombok.

Qatar Cargo Pharma Express
“Qatar Airways is delighted to add Pharma Express routes from India, with service now operating from Mumbai via Ahmedabad to Doha on Tuesdays and Fridays and from Hyderabad to Doha on Wednesdays and Saturdays,” Chief Officer Cargo Ulrich Ogiermann said.

Letter To The Editor: IATA's New President
     Recently the doors at IATA Cargo seem to be revolving, at least when it comes to air cargo executives.
     A couple of years back Jens Tubbesing departed the CNS presidency almost overnight, and without warning.

Veteran's Day Stands For One
     Once upon a time, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the first Veteran’s Day was observed in America to honor all the people that served in World War I—the war to end all wars.
     Although wars have certainly not ended, and since 1918, when WW I ceased fire, there have been multiple occurrences of conflict, we can and will still celebrate the lives of those we lost and love.

Assault on Batteries Fails
   A Pyrrhic victory occurs when the winner of a fight suffers such losses that their win is actually comparable to a defeat.
     No doubt, losses in that measure negate or outweigh any achievement that may have been the goal of the conflict in the first place.

Dubai Air Show Takes Off
   The Dubai Air Show opened Sunday amidst expectations of building up aircraft orderbooks, acrobatics above the desert, and a Gala Closing Dinner on Palm Island starring Katy Perry.
   The five-day event (November 8-12) always sells lots of aircraft (both commercial and military) and opens a portal for Dubai to showcase itself.

View From The Bridge
    Once upon a time, Pan American World Airways’ pilots and crew marched in formation towards waiting aircraft and the action was observed as an integral part of the journey.
     Today, although much has changed, pilots and crew still get and deserve respect for what they do as they think about the safety of everyone who flies.

Butler Blockbuster At Air Cargo Americas
   At the Air & SeaCargo Americas luncheon in Miami on Wednesday, a large cross-section of the global air cargo industry was offered a clear vision of the world of tomorrow according to Jim Butler, president of American Cargo, the biggest airline in the world.
     Mr. Butler has been mostly silent since he was named to the top AA Cargo post in 2013, laying back during the USAir into American Airlines era and preferring instead to allow for a learning curve whilst combining the forces of two cargo departments into one greater airline.

   Turkish Airlines opened up sensational new daily service connecting Miami to Istanbul October 25, and also went live last month with its new generation iCargo system, delivering software solution COMIS (Cargo Operations Management and Information System) to the carrier’s global offering.

Harald Has A Handle On Cargo Security
   The timeframe leading up to Christmastide—when the air cargo community exhales a long, deep breath, taking stock of 2015 while planning ahead for 2016—is once again here.
     Recently, while standing and waiting for a full-body scan pre-flight and hoping that the prescription pills in my pocket didn’t set off the damn thing, I started thinking about who I know in air cargo who has done a stellar job to raise cargo security awareness.

Air At BDP Is Soaring
    Unlike many of its peers, U.S.-based global logistics provider BDP International has seen air cargo demand soar this year, although the company’s bullish run has slowed as West Coast port congestion has been addressed. Senior Vice President of Global Air Freight at BDP Gary Phelps told FlyingTypers the company’s air cargo division had seen strong growth in the first half of the year compared to the same period of 2014. 

EVA Freighter Disappearing Act
    EVA Air (BR), the largest privately owned Taiwanese airline, has stopped their former thrice-weekly 747-400ERF freighter flights into Frankfurt, Germany, citing “lack of demand” and “a better yield for Asia–US-bound flights.”
     With the withdrawal of the FRA-bound freighters, BR’s last main deck capacity into Europe is gone and the remaining uplift capacity of their 777 and 747 passenger versions out of Vienna (VIE), Amsterdam (SPL), and London (LHR) is but a fraction the former sizable uplift capacity of BR in the European cargo market.

All Animals Go To Heaven
    Noah’s Ark has met its match. Decalcomania has transformed the world’s biggest airplane, and the results are stunning.
   Emirates has covered two of its A380s with images of endangered animals. The carrier says it is going full throttle to raise awareness in a world that has driven some species of wildlife to the point of extinction.

60 Minutes With The Chief
   Perhaps the most interesting part of our time in Qatar last week was the power-hour we spent face-to-face with Qatar Airways CEO His Excellency Akbar Al Baker, the man that everyone at Qatar Airways calls “Chief.”
     As part of a major air cargo press gaggle at a 45-minute conference and then “an invited guest” for ten minutes of time in a small room with the Chief, we gained incredible insight into what makes QR Cargo great.

Hartsfield Puts Lamp On Cargo
   Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport General Manager Miguel Southwell talked to the local Chamber of Commerce recently about air cargo, according to The Gwinnett Daily Post.
   “If you think of an airport as a plant, someplace where you process planes and people, you’re missing the point,” Southwell said.

     According to the latest IATA international FTK figures, Qatar Airways Cargo is now the third largest international cargo airline in the world. 

Looking For Cargo Positives
    In recent months FlyingTypers has found it hard to find bulls in the air freight market amid the welter of negative sentiment from economists, trade experts, and transport demand analysts. 
   Cathy Roberson, who recently founded her own think-tank, Logistics Trends & Insights LLC based in Atlanta, Georgia, is not exactly a bull on air freight. 

Qatar Doha CTF Is A Beautiful Thing
    Qatar offers a broad canvas about which to write, from its remarkable journey as an advanced, ancient culture to serving as an outpost of the developing global world to arriving center stage as one of the fastest growing, most dynamic cities on the planet. 
     The best way to take the pulse of Doha Cargo and the city it inhabits is to take a walk and talk to the people.

FIATA Online Learning Curve
   “When the FIATA presidency approached me last year to serve as chairman of the newly formed FIATA Logistics Academy, (FLA) I did not hesitate,” Issa Baluch told FlyingTypers.
    “They viewed my association with Harvard University and MIT as key in taking this vision of embracing the young professionals and the need to train the new generation of logisticians in our sector.”

Sorting Out Cables From Greece
     Timeo, danaos, et dona ferentes is a Latin phrase from the writings of Virgil; it literally means “Fear the Danaans—the Greek—even when they bear gifts.” 
     In fact, it is a warning made to the citizens of Troja who brought in the wooden Trojan horse they thought was a donation to the Gods. The rest of the story is legend—Ulysses, accompanied by other Greek heroes, climbed out from a hiding place in the horse’s womb to fall upon the defenseless city at night, thus ending the 10-year Trojan War.

     “It’s time to change these widespread sentiments by communicating proactively the many environmental and technical achievements the aviation industry came up with in recent years and will go on contributing in the times ahead.

India At Home Drives Growth
     Blame India’s tech-savvy Prime Minister for the e-tail boom, but Narendra Modi’s push for smart cities and his love for social media have encouraged mouse-chasing Indians to go clickety-click from the confines of their homes. 
     The result? Domestic cargo has been experiencing growth and even low-cost carriers, with their constraints of quick turnaround times at airports, are going all out to get express cargo packages.

  Despite the huge fluctuations in the ocean market, air freight is still a more challenging market from a logistics management perspective, according to one leading 3PL.

Creating A Great Cargo Airport
    What makes an airport “great” for cargo? 
     I guess it depends on who you are and where you are in the logistics chain because the playing field changes considerably if the focus is transfer activity versus origin and destination, or belly cargo versus freighter.

The China World's Factory Slows
The contraction of China’s imports and exports this past summer has some industry observers wondering if it could be a sign of things to come for the air freight community.
     Although exports to the U.S. were steady over the two-month period compared to 2014, there were alarming declines of goods moving out of the ‘world’s factory’ both to developed and emerging markets. .
