TIACA has announced the appointment of Amar More, SVP, Kale Logistics, to its board.
Amar will work with the TIACA team to help achieve a wider adoption of e-freight across the air freight industry.
He has a strong background in supply chain technology and has worked with global cargo airlines, airports, ground handlers, and forwarders to create digital cargo community systems, e-freight platforms, and enterprise systems.
“We are pleased to welcome Amar to the board as he represents a neutral technology player,” said Oliver Evans, TIACA Chairman.
“He has undertaken significant work at ground level in ensuring adoption of e-freight, and delivering solutions that equip all industry stakeholders with a digital platform supporting e-freight. We look forward to his contribution in helping us achieve our digital objectives.”
Amar said he was looking forward to sharing Kale’s expertise, resources, and experience with TIACA and playing a vital role in advising members on digitization initiatives in the regulatory environment.
“Kale has been a long-standing TIACA trustee member,” he said.
“E-freight is an initiative that spans across shippers, forwarders, airlines, and ground handling companies, and TIACA is in a unique position to influence the adoption of this initiative because it represents all stakeholders in the air freight supply chain."
TIACA will be addressing the issue of e-freight at a dedicated workshop on October 7th at the Air Cargo Forum in Seoul, Korea, called Shredding the Paper Burden. To register to attend, visit the TIACA web site at www.tiaca.org.
Amar received the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) International Young Achiever Award in 2009, in recognition of his contribution to delivering technology solutions to the logistics industry.
He endeavors to bridge the technology gap between different players in the logistics industry and has been working very closely with leading Industry Associations, experts and stakeholders alike in conceptualizing and implementing large cargo community systems that address the inefficiencies in the supply chain and create seamless flow of shipment information.
