Nov 28, 2018: Tim Strauss, who currently serves as Vice President of Cargo for Air Canada, has joined the advisory board of drones’ specialist Drone Delivery Canada (DDC) to assist the company to execute its commercial strategy.
DDC is currently focusing on strengthening its management team amongst all levels with a focus on enlisting the smartest minds to assist in driving commercial operations. Accordingly, DDC added Strauss to its team as he has more than 31 years of cargo experience in both the airline and freight forwarding industries.
In his current role at Air Canada, Strauss provides oversight for all aspects of Air Canada's cargo business, including leading, directing, developing and implementing customer-centric initiatives and solutions, and responsibility for commercial business and its profitability.
Prior to joining Air Canada, Strauss held leadership roles in global sales and operations at Northwest Airlines, Delta Air Lines and in Hawaiian Airlines. He began his career with Emery Worldwide in 1987 (now UPS Supply Chain Logistics) where he held roles of increasing responsibility, starting as a cargo handler and completing his tenure as vice president of Transportation and Logistics.
Strauss advanced his understanding of the logistics industry via studies in management at The Ohio State University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Cambridge Institute.
"I have had the pleasure of knowing Tim for quite some time and his forward-thinking vision of logistics and solid industry experience are true assets for the Company in implementing our commercialization strategy in Canada and abroad," commented Tony Di Benedetto, CEO of Drone Delivery Canada.
"Tony and the staff at DDC are in the unique position of introducing world leading technology and a totally new approach to the distribution of goods across Canada and beyond. This is truly a revolutionary approach to the supply chain which will affect our industry for decades to come,” commented Tim Strauss, VP Cargo, Air Canada.
