IATA Cargo Security Forum

If you missed the 2nd IATA Cargo & Mail Supply Chain Security Forum...

The 2nd IATA Cargo & Mail Supply Chain Security Forum took place early October 2012 in Geneva. The Forum attracted more than 120 delegates representing a wide range of experts from the industry including operational managers, compliance officers, policy makers and process and technical engineers representing the entire supply chain and the key regulators responsible for security.

The importance of partnerships

During his opening remarks, Tony Tyler, the IATA Director General, spoke of the necessity to take a holistic approach to supply chain security. He highlighted the importance of having public and private stakeholder partnerships working together, to better understand their roles and current obligations and also have a clear understanding of the responsibilities of other supply chain parties.

The Forum urged all the key stakeholders present to focus on the importance of engaging directly with regulators on the development of supply chain security solutions. This approach was welcomed by the regulators present.

The best opportunity to get the last information

The Forum provided the delegates with the most up to date information on critical  security topics including:

  • EU ACC3 requirements and foreseen impact
  • e-CSD rollout to enhance the security of supply chains
  • US and EU ACAS pilot updates and future direction
  • Advance Electronic Information (for security) updates and results of a recent WCO/IATA Survey
  • New security initiatives and solutions for the mail
  • ICAO and WCO updates on security initiatives
  • IT and Equipment Security solutions for the industry

Through the satisfaction survey, participants indicated that the Forum was highly beneficial and productive for them.

We look forward to welcoming delegates to the 3rd IATA Cargo & Mail Supply Chain Security Forum planned October 2013.
