During this podcast, Fried provided a detailed overview of the key trends and themes within the air cargo and logistics sectors, including: the current state of the air cargo sector from a volume and service perspective; the impact of the Delta variant on air cargo; the intersection of air cargo and inventory management; and the 2021 Peak Season outlook, among other topics. 

Brandon Fried is one of the country’s leading experts on air freight and cargo security. With more than 40 years of experience, Brandon represents the industry and the association by serving on several Federal Advisory Committees including: The TSA Aviation Security Advisory Committee, and The U.S. Department of Commerce Committee on Supply Chain Competitiveness.

He also served three terms on the CBP Commercial Operations Advisory Committee. While still a forwarder, Brandon joined the Airforwarders Association and was soon elected Chairperson in 2001. He served two consecutive terms as Chair and remained an active member of the Board of Directors.

In 2005, he sold his forwarding company and was appointed Executive Director of the Association. He also represents forwarder interests as Chair of the advisory Board of Cargo Network Services, an IATA company. In Washington, Brandon is the public face of the Airforwarders Association testifying in Congress, working with the Department of Homeland Security.
