Four For Why CNS Matters

Brendan Sullivan, Tony Calabrese, Jo Frigger, Jan Krems

     And It’s not just Great Golf Opening Day Sunday at IATA's Cargo Network Services (CNS) Partnership Conference April 14-16.
     This is the 33rd CNS gathering and it is at The Gaylord Resort & Convention Center, in Dallas Fort Worth, Texas.
     This event grew up with one goal to give the airline forwarder partnership a chance to breathe without the USA crying anti-trust and it was the idea of Tony Calabrese, to put the airlines and forwarders together paving the way to a brighter reality.
     “When I started at CNS, the airlines and the forwarders, even the airlines and airlines, barely spoke to each other,” Tony said as CNS celebrated its 25th Anniversary in 2011.
     “What happened right from the very first Partnership Conference in 1986 is that everybody discovered, through understanding, that our supposed differences were more myth than fact,” Tony said.
     “CNS needs to maintain a strong voice for the airline forwarder partnership,” says Jan Krems, President of United Airlines Cargo.
     “We need our trusted organizations to bring us together and make sure that cooperation between all parties not only maintains a single standardized system in place, but also advances our offering through cooperation that touches every aspect of the logistics supply chain.
     “For all of us up and down the line in all aspects of our industry to be as good as we want to be, we need the unique opportunities for cooperation that the CNS advocacy offers working for the advancement and betterment of the entire logistics industry,” Jan added.
     In 2020 the late Joachim Frigger, Chairman of EMO Trans, who guided and built the fabulous success of that company, shared the freight forwarder view of why he supported CNS.
     “The formation of CNS always was and still is a great opportunity for meaningful dialogue between the airlines and freight forwarders,” Jo said.
     “We have always supported this goal and hope that going forward, a balanced view of all participants and their business interests can be maintained.
     “I do regret that CNS has only been created in the U.S. and that this model has not been expanded to other worldwide areas like Europe, Asia, Middle East, and Latin America.
     “The advantage of close cooperation between partners becomes more evident in today's global markets, as geopolitical developments create a great deal of division and uncertainty for all involved,” the late Jo Frigger concluded.
     “I’ll be there,” siad Brendan Sullivan, Director Cargo, IATA. He will be moderating the 'Sustainability Panel – Value to the Shipper' Panel and will be sure to have some words about the just concluded Hong Kong World Cargo Symposium.
     Words that endure from Messers Calabrese, Krems, Frigger and Sullivan as we consider the value proposition and hope that CNS Partnership Conference brings to air cargo every time it meets.
     See you in Big D April 14.
