Cargo 2000 appoints Chris Davies to new technical manager role
Further, the organisation prepares to rebrand in the New Year, part of a change program which involves a revision of door-to-door specification, a Smart Data project and a revised Audit and Certification program.
Davies has held various roles in his 14 years of experience in the air freight IT sector and joins the new Cargo 2000 management team, headed by Ariaen Zimmerman, executive director.
“Chris has a reputation for delivering robust projects and solutions for his customers, and prides himself on his ability to act as a conduit between commercial and technology teams,” said Zimmerman.“He is very much looking forward to continuing his efforts to promote industry-wide quality standards from within the Cargo 2000 team.”
The Board met in Amsterdam this week to review progress on its strategic transformation program and plan next steps for its brand relaunch later this year.
Davies worked with Descartes Systems Group in London, where he led various systems integration projects for the company’s GF-X electronic cargo-booking portal for freight forwarders and carriers. Descartes is a valued partner and systems provider for Cargo 2000.
Davies has previously served on the C2K Technical Working Group and will be responsible for delivering the core technical C2K product.
“I am looking forward to liaising productively with all stakeholders within the C2K community, many of whom I have worked closely with over the years,” said Davies.
“I am keen to continue to develop these relationships and to bring the fresh perspective of someone who has been at the core of the industry for some time to help define the future strategy and achieve the objectives of Cargo 2000 in a way that addresses the needs of all industry participants.”
Cargo 2000 (C2K) is an IATA interest group with the mission of creating and implementing quality standards for the worldwide air cargo industry.
