In an effort to involve more air cargo players in the “security dialogue,” the National Industrial Transportation League has invited some key players to participate in its annual conference next week.
“Anyone connected with air freight movements should be concerned over the new plans that government and industry may be considering to counter the attempted terrorist attacks of the past week,” said NITL spokesmen. “This is precisely why attending the League’s 103rd Annual Meeting/ TransComp Exhibition, November 14-16, 2010 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL will help prepare these professionals to meet this latest challenge.”
For the first time the League and the Express Logistics Association (XLA) are preparing a special Air Cargo Pavilion on the trade show floor. Appearing in the pavilion are:
AirNet Systems, Inc.?Alaska Airlines, Inc.?American Airlines Cargo?MNX?Purolator USA, Inc.?Red Logistics Corp.?Sky Courier, Inc.?Southwest Airlines Cargo?XLA.
“It is vital that more supply chain partners become aware of the role the League plays in security,” said Richard Macomber, chairman of the NITL air cargo committee.
According to spokesmen, this is a special opportunity to talk with the professionals who will also be addressing this special challenge.
Additionally on the trade show floor NITL will have a special workshop set for Monday, November 15 titled, “TSA Approach to Meeting the 9/11 Act’s Air Cargo Security Rules.” TSA officials, Douglas Foster and Gary Lupinacci, will be on hand to walk shippers through the current security requirements and answer questions on what may be in store for all air cargo movements.
