TIACA and Air Cargo Belgium launch masterclass on digitisation and data sharing
Dec 10, 2018: TIACA has teamed up with Air Cargo Belgium, the community organisation at Brussels Airport to hold a masterclass next month exploring how the air cargo supply chain can leverage digital transformation and data sharing as enablers for growth.
The ‘Connected Air Cargo Masterclass’ will feature important debates including building a connected air cargo community, using technology as an enabler, and digital transformation best practice, when it takes place at BRUcargo’s Air Cargo Academy in Brussels, Belgium, from January 30 to 31.
The Masterclass will also include a seminar on the story of BRUcloud, an open data sharing platform that enables the different stakeholders to work more “integrated” and act as a network.
“We are living in a period of great change for the airfreight industry, and it is imperative that supply chain professionals learn how to take advantage of emerging technologies and trends, as well as explore new ways of collaborating,” said Steven Polmans, vice chairman, TIACA, and head of Cargo and Logistics at Brussels Airport Company.
“Attendees have the option of attending an additional session, ‘From theory to practice, getting started with collaborative apps’, which looks at how to put theory into practice and even includes live demonstrations, when it takes place on February 1.”
Earlier this year, TIACA teamed up with UK-based aviation consultancy TSA Group for an extensive training programme for air cargo professionals, including the development of several new courses aimed at providing participants with a complete overview of the aviation industry.
