Cargo 2000 Is Now Cargo iQ

Cargo 2000 Is Now Cargo iQ

Ron Cesana     “Cargo iQ members work together to measure success and continuously improve the value of airfreight for customers,” said Ariaen Zimmerman, Executive Director, Cargo iQ, as the IATA special interest group Cargo 2000 (C2K) is rebranded and with new members reborn as Cargo iQ (CiQ?). Emirates SkyCargo joins several other new members as Cargo iQ was trumpeted as the big news out of Berlin this week.
     A Smart Data Project as well as a new audit and certification scheme were also revealed, although few details are available.
     “We are excited to embark on this next chapter of our work, which benefits the whole industry, with innovative ideas and new members,” Mr. Zimmerman said.
     More power to them!
     An organization composed of leading freight forwarders and airline cargo executives seeking to improve the quality of air-cargo service has always been a good idea.
     We recall the great Ron Cesana; from 2000 until his untimely death in 2007 at age 66, he spirited Cargo 2000 with a can-do attitude that lifted everyone.
     “During our most difficult and challenging times, when even our staunchest supporters wondered if the scale and complexity of what we had taken on was too great, Ron would convince us otherwise with his wise words, knowledge, and sheer enthusiasm,” Mick Fountain, Chairman of Cargo 2000, told FlyingTypers when Ron died.
     Let’s hope Cargo iQ can work it like Ron.
