February 28, 2020:  The STAT Trade Times Award for Excellence in Air Cargo is a ceremonious event, popularly known as ‘the gala award night’ within the air cargo community, which acknowledges pioneering works done by companies and leaders in the air cargo sector, internationally. The gala award night was hosted during the Air Cargo India 2020 event, which took place in Grand Hyatt Hotel, Mumbai, India from 25 to 27 February.  

The award night brought together the who’s who of the industry, kindling a sense of solidarity that’s exceptional and awaited by the community. Lise-Marie Turpin received The STAT Trade Times Lifetime Achievement Award. The popular International Cargo Airline of the year Award was won by the Qatar Airways Cargo. And Emirates Sky Cargo was Highly Acclaimed in the same category. Changi International Airport won The International Cargo Airport of the year Award, while Frankfurt International Airport was Highly Acclaimed in the same category.  

2019 has had not served the Air Cargo sector well and ensuing trade disruptions and disagreements are still haunting the industry across the world. Moreover, the start of 2020, in the view of the unfortunate coronavirus outbreak, is practically trying to push the air cargo movements to standstill. In the face of these crises, the community is impressively gearing itself on all fronts: leveraging AI systems, automating handling and warehousing operations, modulating freight movements economically and influencing regulatory changes for sustaining seamless services across the chain. 

To alleviate the impacts of the current situation, the air cargo industry is aggressively adopting innovative solutions and incorporating cutting edge technology. This has woken many companies into a competition never seen before, presenting The STAT Trade Times with a challenge spectacularly new in nominating leaders and companies for the awards.
