Jorge Carretero of LATAM Cargo Takes Over Chairmanship of the BARIG Air Cargo & Logistics Committee

• BARIG committee reorganized in the field of air cargo
• European representative of South America’s leading freight airline strengthens the airline association’s expertise

Frankfurt am Main, May 19, 2022. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the importance of the air cargo business for maintaining global logistics chains and transporting necessary supplies and trade goods worldwide has once again become evident. Accordingly, the international airline association BARIG (Board of Airline Representatives in Germany) has been actively involved in the air cargo sector for many years. In order to further drive forward currently relevant cargo and logistics topics, the BARIG Air Cargo & Logistics Committee has now reorganized itself. Jorge Carretero of LATAM Cargo takes over the chairmanship with immediate effect. In this way, the cargo division of the Chilean-Brazilian LATAM Airlines Group—as leading cargo airline in South America—supports the association in representing the interests and requirements of the entire BARIG airline community in this field.

“I am very happy that Jorge Carretero is taking over the lead of the BARIG Air Cargo & Logistics Committee,” BARIG Chairman and Executive Director Michael Hoppe states. Together with our more than 100 member airlines, we aim to drive forward important cargo-related topics in this committee, ranging from the optimization of handling processes to further needs-based development of infrastructure in Germany. Currently, we are facing considerable bottlenecks in operation and service processes, which we have to solve together with the airports, service providers, and politicians. Furthermore, we are coordinating and fostering the cooperation with the Air Cargo Community Frankfurt in this BARIG committee. With his many years of international experience, Jorge Carretero is the ideal representative to focus on the right topics with the BARIG members.”

Jorge Carretero has been working for LATAM Airlines Group for 15 years and is considered an airline expert in the sales and cargo business. As Sales Director Central Europe, he has been moving in an international environment for quite some time. His profound expertise will be of great use in his additional role as committee chairman. “I am delighted to be involved in the further development of Germany as an air freight location and to coordinate the common interests of the BARIG member airlines,” Jorge Carretero reports.

The BARIG Air Cargo & Logistics Committee is composed of the BARIG airlines’ cargo representatives. Central points of discussion include the general improvement of airport infrastructure, the further development of intermodal transport infrastructure, as well as the implementation of internationally uniform rules. These topics and many more are being discussed in the committee accordingly and coordinated with airports, aviation authorities, and politicians, both regionally and nationally, as well as globally.
