Air Cargo Conference 2022

Air Cargo Conference 2022

Collaboration in the air cargo community is key. After two years of considerable growth in the cargo business, there are now many new challenges lying ahead. Therefore, collaboration among the different stakeholders is essential to finding the right digital, operational, and sustainable solutions.

At this year’s Air Cargo Conference 2022, BARIG Chairman and Executive Board Member of the Air Cargo Community Frankfurt e.V. Michael Hoppe, BARIG Air Cargo & Logistics Committee Chairman Jorge Careterro, and Martina Schikorr of the FRA Cargo Team came together to further initiate and support discussions and cooperation regarding important future air cargo topics. Many key experts from the industry participated in the event to consider how future challenges can be met with new agility and flexibility.

Digitization played a major role in the conference program as well. Stefan Schnorr, State Secretary of the German Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport, pointed out Frankfurt’s position as largest cargo hub in Europe. In order to strengthen that position the ministry launched the “Digital Testbed Air Cargo” project that is meant to support innovation, digital transformation, and connectivity along the air freight transport chain.

As part of their presentation, Martina Schikorr of Fraport AG and Anne Ebeling of DAKOSY asked the audience: “Why do we need a cargo community system?” Michael Hoppe considered this question from the airlines’ point of view, pointing out the system’s added value in terms of transparency, predictability, and automatization of cargo processes. Due to collaboration on new digital concepts, such as FRA-OS at Frankfurt Airport, there is enormous potential for more efficiency. There is much to come and much to do in the following months and years.
