Geneva - The International Air Transport Association (IATA) and Cargo Network Services Corporation (CNS) announced that the theme of this year’s CNS Partnership Conference will be “Momentum: Maintaining and Gaining.” The CNS Partnership Conference is taking place in Miami, 4-6 June.

“Air Cargo proved its worth during the pandemic, delivering critical medical supplies and vaccines, while maintaining supply chains in the face of near global border restrictions. Today, we must recall the pandemic resilience as we address issues of sustainability, a slowing global economy and weakening trade, and skilled labor shortages.
