Session 6, Air Cargo Handling Logistics Digital Conference 2021

Airlines have adapted to dramatic shifts in cargo demand in a number of ways. Some of the most common and ingenious include the use of ‘preighters’ – a passenger plane acting as a freighter – and the emergence of charter businesses for single freight forwarders.

Stephen Dawkins of Air Logistics Group, Paul Cheng of HACTL, Hiran Perera from Emirates Airlines and Sebastiaan Scholte of KALES Airline Services explore if these initiatives have worked well, whether they’re here to stay – and the lessons to be learned.

Also discussed:
• The increasing risk of digital threats such as ransomware and cybersecurity
• How the data corridors initiative can improve safety and transparency
