The June issue of Airline Cargo Management is now available online

Posted on 8 May 2017

 

The June issue of Airline Cargo Management is now online

 

On 6-7 June, Airline Cargo Management is delighted to be involved with the third FlyPharma Conference, which will take place at the Sheraton Brussels Airport Hotel, Belgium. Designed for forward-thinking pharma and air cargo stakeholders, this packed event concentrates on how to establish successful pharma supply chain collaboration. With this in mind, our June issue is taking a closer look at the pharma industry, and investigates how innovative tech is revolutionising the transportation of temperature-sensitive pharma cargo.

 

As the Trump administration considers withdrawing from 

NAFTA and the UK prepares to leave the European Union, we examine the disruptive effect protectionist rhetoric is having on transatlantic trade outlook.

 

Elsewhere, we speak with Alaska Airlines about its acquisition of Virgin America, and how the boost in capacity is cementing its West Coast monopoly.

 

The new era of time-sensitive freight has cultivated an environment in which ad hoc charters are thriving. Customers are willing to pay a premium for assurances that their urgent shipment will arrive and be unloaded in a timely manner.

 

Also in this issue:

 

Leading lights

 

Lyndon Faulkner, CEO of Pelican Products, relays how his strategy of aggressive acquisition and expansion led to the launch of cold chain arm Pelican BioThermal.

 

Operations: Cyber security

 

Amidst fears that cyber criminals will take advantage of vulnerabilities in the supply chain, we speak with industry experts about the importance of good cyber hygiene.

 

Fuel

 

Allegations of fuel surcharge fixing have redoubled calls for greater transparency in how airlines operate, as oil’s cost and carbon footprint threaten to sink profitability for good.

 

Airports: Africa

 

As freighters struggle to justify southbound routes, Africa’s perishables market continues to flourish, particularly as relates to flowers and vegetables.
