Our sixth Cargo Live episode uncovered the latest insights and trends in the airfreight industry, from tailor-made products, and capacity developments in the industry since the start of 2022 to the future of digital air cargo. The episode featured expert speakers, including:

Here, we reveal three essential take-outs from the sixth episode of our series…

Christos Spyrou, Founder and CEO, Neutral Air Partner (NAP)

“Our aim is to inject a greater degree of advanced cargo expertise into the logistics industry. We have developed a lot to create tailor-made products and tools based on the industry’s needs. Our mission is to become the largest group of independent air cargo agents and consolidators, setting new standards of excellence for the small- and medium-sized global air cargo logistics community. All our partners have a commanding local presence, a proven track record in air cargo operations, and are screened for their service quality, compliance, and financial stability.”

Marco Bloemen, Managing Director and Head, Seabury Cargo

“It’s definitely not a quiet summer. Between Europe and Asia, we see strong declines in capacity due to the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, with carriers being taken out of the marketplace and the Russian airspace closure. As a consequence, we see a lot of flying from Asia via the Gulf into Europe, not only by the Middle East carriers but other carriers, which are also benefiting and use the detour routes to make a stop in between.”

Camilo Garcia, VP Global Business Development, WebCargo by Freightos 

“Our job is not to prevent volatility, but to help weather the storm and support stakeholders to perform better in a volatile environment, such as the one we have now and most likely will have in the future. Prices from China to the US West Coast have soared in the last couple of years. So how do we allow carriers to position their capacity better and price more efficiently? We need more underlying digitisation, and this is what we’re sorely lacking as an industry.”
