New Faces Not Surprising
about my position has surprised me per se, I can tell you I’m grateful
for all of the support I’ve received from the cargo community and
our internal worldwide team.
Keeping a Good Year Coming
“As we wrap up 2017,
we are continuing our focus on the importance of our customers and their
overall experience. We’re investing in our ExpediteTC product with
improved cold chain facilities, which is crucial to us. Our success hinges
on our ability to move delicate materials through our network, which serves
more than 157 cities in 45 countries around the globe. We are making strides
towards earning a CEIV certification from IATA. That is so important to
us because it impartially validates the proper transportation of delicate,
temperature-controlled pharmaceutical shipments.
Looking At Tomorrow
“The cargo industry
is on an upswing, and we are extremely pleased with how we’ve performed
over the past year.
Peg Of My Heart
proud of our operational service performance, as well as our ability to
adapt to ever-changing demand. It’s all possible because of our
entire team—from fleet service clerks and crew chiefs to agents
and our ramp team.
Landmark Investments In Future
“We are investing in the future of our business like never before. The most important part of that investment is in our team members. Investments in new infrastructure and systems directly translate into our ability to better take care of each other and our customers, and to forge lasting partnerships with vendors and others in the field. We know the best way to improve business is through collaboration. For example, tools like our customer relationship management software help our entire team keep in better touch with our customers and allow us to more effectively coordinate the way that we manage relationships. We also have a new open plan headquarters facility, which helps us better collaborate between teams. “When we all work together, it’s truly remarkable what we can achieve.”
Face to Face With Roger
“With the exception
of a couple of years spent in Nigeria where my parents were teaching,
I was born in Oxford, England, and grew up in the UK. I’d always
wanted to become a lawyer (they are called solicitors in the UK, but think
this has a different meaning in the U.S.!), so I studied law at Huddersfield
University. After graduating, my sister and I travelled around the U.S.
and Canada, driving cross-country from New York to Los Angeles. “It
took about 6 weeks, but it was incredible to be able to climb the Half
Dome in Yosemite and go whitewater rafting in Canada.
Why Air Cargo Americas Matters
“Trade shows are a great opportunity to spend time with loads of
customers, suppliers, and team members and provide a great opportunity
for receiving lots of feedback
The Freight Forwarder Partnership
“We rely on and
have great respect for freight forwarders, as they are integral to the
success of the Cargo division, and our partnership with our forwarder
customers will continue to be key to our success.
Making A Difference
very early to talk about my legacy in air cargo as I hope to continue
developing and expanding my career.
What an interesting year it has been for Elliott Paige,
Airport Director of Air Service Development at Hartsfield-Jackson
Atlanta International Airport (ATL).
As 2017 Winds Down
“Before year end,”
Mr. Paige assured, “my team and I will meet with our airport experts
and consultants to analyze synergies between our passenger belly cargo
and all-freighter operations.
Efficiencies A Cargo Community Effort
“HJIA has been making
changes to expand cargo and improve efficiencies.
The Last Word
“So we look ahead
with a new warehouse with airside access of 120,000 square feet; a Build,
Own, Operate, Transfer warehouse project of about 550,000 square feet,
the RFP of which should hit the streets before year end, and enabling
work that is ongoing, including additional taxi-way and ramp space; and
new sister airport agreements with selected Asian and European cities
specifically designed to promote cargo operations in partnership with
Four new destinations highlight the just
announced KLM/Air France/Martinair winter schedule that began October

IAG Cargo Up — Third quarter (July 1-September 30) results show an increase of 10.2 percent year or year.
Lewis Girdwood, CFO at IAG Cargo, said the strong growth was due to demand growing faster than capacity. The results were also largely driven by the demand on the Asia-Pacific sector, due to ocean congestion between China and Europe.
The upswing in the market over the course of 2017 is encouraging as we approach the peak and year end.
As we enter the final months of the year we have ensured that we are well prepared for the peak season so we can continue to deliver for our customers over the busiest time in the air cargo calendar.”
