Last week attendees in Miami at the 30th Annual Cargo Network Services (CNS) Partnership, the American-based pioneer air cargo organization dedicated to advancing cooperation between airlines and forwarders, were introduced to a new look as CNS met its new President Frédéric Leger.
Frédéric Leger has held several inside jobs at IATA and is referred to as a “right hand man” to IATA DG Willie Walsh.
Both are based and will continue to operate from Geneva .
“I’m very proud to walk in Tony Calabrese’s footsteps, but also the footsteps of successes as we open this 30th edition of The CNS Partnership Conference.”
Nothing To Lose But the Wait
Boston Logan International Airport air cargo stakeholders have some congestion challenges, but help is on the way as Massport, the airport operator have teamed up with Kale Information Solutions, the wunderkind company with the Airport Community System (ACS) that streamlines the entire export and import process for all airport cargo stakeholders.
“Get ready for the Massport Airport Congestion Pilot kick-off meeting September 13 from 10:00a-11:00a EST & on September 16 11:00a-12:00p EST).
Changes At Newark Airport
The prospect of a new 23-acre Amazon mini-hub at EWR is a perfect example of the impacts of growth. The substantial land use requirement will undoubtedly impact other cargo stakeholders to include their leasehold and operations. The likelihood is that new facility models – perhaps vertical – will need to be constructed to avoid displacing existing tenants to other airports. While it all can be done, it will require substantial modification of facilities, adjacent landside and airside infrastructure, perhaps some major access roads, and of course, heavy capital investments.
