CNS Departures Means Industry Suffers
Warren Jones On CNS Departures

Hello Geoffrey,

     I do hope this finds you well and in good health there.
     This is to reach out as former President of CNS to say it has been a sad few months in Air Cargo.
     We are witnessing some of the best leadership in our industry departing, when this is the time they are needed the most. With the recent announcement of Mike White leaving CNS and some great individuals at IATA like Gordon Wright, our industry, while resilient, will suffer.
     There once was a time when people looked to CNS and IATA for guidance and direction.
     There was once a time that the CNS Partnership Conference was exactly what the branding implied: a partnership of individuals from all aspects of the industry working together to solve problems.
     Now CNS Partnership apparently has turned into a cash cow for the higher ups.
     There was once a time the IATA/CNS logo meant something to people; exuding pride, concern for the overall good, and helpful guidance through cooperation for all aspects of air cargo.
     Now with some of the most talented, experienced individuals leaving, the forces that worked tirelessly every day to improve air cargo will also be gone, taking with their departure, expertise in air cargo, up and down the line.
     We are left to wonder who will step up?
     With our industry experiencing its greatest challenges, CNS/IATA should be leading the way and helping the industry overcome the obstacles while standing ready with top notch experienced cargo people as we move through this very important time.
     But to do this, there has to be leadership and a clear direction forward that can help everyone with all the issues and challenges that we face.
     There are some amazing industry groups out there that can fill this void.
     “Now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of their party,” is a typing drill from more than 100 years ago.
     We need our industry leaders to stand up and be heard for the overall good at once.

With kind regards
Warren Jones
CNS President 2013-2015
