The themes of digitalisation, sustainability and safety & security will be drive the agenda at next month’s IATA World Cargo Symposium (WCS), which is taking place in Hong Kong from March 12-14.
“Air cargo is an unsung hero of the global economy. In normal times, it delivers some 35% of the value of goods traded across borders. In the pandemic, air cargo brought medical supplies and vaccines to where they were needed. And today it is providing a vital transport alternative for some products as Red Sea shipping lanes face geopolitical uncertainty. Air cargo’s success matters. When air cargo’s global leaders gather in Hong Kong for the IATA World Cargo Symposium, ensuring the future reliability and growth of this critical sector will be top of mind with an agenda focused on sustainability, digitalisation, safety and security,” said Brendan Sullivan, IATA’s Global Head of Cargo.
