Air Cargo Management - University of Geneva (Classroom, 3 days)


About

Learn the key elements necessary to manage a successful air cargo company.

Fundamental structural changes are taking place in the industry. Volumes are growing rapidly but yields are declining as the high yield traffic moves to integrated operators. For many airlines, the cargo contribution represents the difference between profit and loss on almost all international routes. Cargo management faces challenges as never before.

This course is designed to give managers a better understanding of the new cargo environment so that they can learn to avoid costly strategic and tactical errors and thereby help improve their company’s overall competitive performance.

This course is offered as part of the IATA-University of Geneva Aviation Management Program. A related course is also scheduled at our IATA Training Centers.
