East Side/West Side Cargo USA

Salvatore Ingrassia      Both New York and Los Angeles organized air cargo have big doings at important meetings this week bringing together industry leaders on both coasts of the USA.
     Upcoming in New York at JFK is Air Cargo Expo held Thursday March 21 at Russo’s On The Bay near the airport.
     Sponsored by Air Cargo Association at JFK since 1958, word up is get there early and be in a place where the action will take off directly after registration opens at 08:00.
     At 09:00 Salvatore Ingrassia, (right) Port Director JFK Airport, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, will offer opening remarks.
     Next at 0900 sharp, “Linking the Power of People & Technology”, organized and chaired by Brandon Fried, Executive Director of the Airforwarders Association.

     Linking Power, People, Panel includes Brennan O’Dowd, CEO of 7L Freight; Andrew Renna, JFK Assistant Port Director, Cargo Operations; Alex Sakach, Sr. Vice President Worldwide Flight Services (WFS); Michael White, President Trade Network Consultants and and Senior Advisor to the CEO of PayCargo; and Michelle Williams, Managing Director Strategy and Business Services for Southwest Airlines.
Clyde Vanel      A High Noon Luncheon will showcase a Keynote Address by New York Assemblyman Clyde Vanel, (left) who among other duties serves as the Chair of the Subcommittee on Internet and New Technology.
     Of course, an expected audience at this JFK event of 400 will get plenty of time for networking and product viewing at tables and booths at the all-day event.
     Meantime On West Side USA @ LAX The Los Angeles Air Cargo Association (LAACA) Luncheon meeting for March 22 will feature no less a guest speaker personage than the foreminded Brandon Fried:
     “I just flew in from New York, and boy are my arms tired!”
     Brandon, or maybe a CGI/AI Brandon will discuss “Navigating Turbulence – Reflections on the Last Year and What We Can Expect During Remainder of 2024!”
Yasmene Abdel, Dayna Harap     LAACA March 22 Luncheon takes place at The Belamar, 3501 N. Sepulveda, Manhattan Beach, CA. located about 10 minutes from LAX.
     Love Yasmene Abdel, Secretary at LAACA, where amongst an energized dedicated membership she has been described as “Heart & Soul of LAACA”.
     No less can be said of Dayna Harap, President of Air Cargo Association at JFK.
Dayna & Yasmene in 2024 are vital forces for good, both East Side/West Side in every aspect of supporting USA and beyond that, the world logistics community.
     These two ladies add gravity and pathos to the words of The National Women's History Alliance who praised:
     “The example of women who are committed to embracing everyone and excluding no one in the common quest for freedom and opportunity”.
