08.00 – 17.00 Registration
09.00 – 09.15 Welcome from the Chairman:
Stavros Evangelakakis, Chairman, Cool Chain Association & Head of Global Healthcare, Cargolux
09.15 – 09.30 CCA Overview + Technical Committee
Nicola Caristo, CCA Secretary General & Airline Partner Manager,
09.30 – 10.30 Industry Relationships – Panel Discussion
Co-chairs: Fabrizio Iacobacci, CCA Board Director & Head of Pharma Business Development, BCUBE Air Cargo Spa
Standardization is the keyword for airport and pharmaceutical logistics. Both present difficulties because of the stringent regulations involved. But, on the other hand, they are two perfect test beds where concepts like qualification and standardization can be trialled. Operators and producers can establish their mutual needs, limitations, and potentials. No aircraft can take off without disregarding regulation, likewise no pharma can be transported if the prescribed rules are not respected. In this perspective, the industry relationships represent the necessary fundamental background for initiating and promoting technical discussion with the scope of confirmation, development and/or integration of the logistics criteria. Working as a community with shippers, operators and regulators is not an opportunity but the first rule to be respected. CCA, together with other international stakeholders, has taken the lead with a common goal: working together, sharing experiences, and creating common culture on the basis of a real project.
11.00 Refreshment break and Viewing of Exhibition
11.00 – 11.40 Innovation and Digitization – Market Outlook
Host: Miguel Rodríguez Moreno, CCA Board Director & Senior Manager Climate Control Products, Qatar Airways
Collaboration has been a word used many times without real substance behind it or concrete actions derived from it. It is important that when we talk about collaboration between industry partners, we also showcase what can be accomplished by working together, hand in hand, to improve and enhance our product offering and better serve the industry. In this session, we’ll be able to learn interesting insights from Boeing on the outlook of the cargo business and a real case study presentation on the performance of the aircraft’s temperature-controlled capabilities on a flower flight from South America to Europe. We’ll look also at the technology and connectivity improvements being made with the new B777/XF and have an overview of the special cargo transportation.
11.40 – 12.30 Innovation and Digitization – Panel Discussion
Chair: Miguel Rodríguez Moreno, CCA Board Director & Senior Manager Climate Control Products, Qatar Airways
In today’s world, we can’t escape from technology around us and the constant search for faster, better, and bigger communication capabilities, in all aspects of our lives and our businesses. Companies need to adapt fast to the new applications and new demands in order to stay relevant and at the forefront of the digitization initiatives. In this session, we will have a diverse panel composed by different industry experts who will share their vision on how innovation and digitization is being applied in the industry and what the trends are for the foreseeable future. There will be perspectives from the ground and cargo operations, tracking and monitoring angles on this topic with specific examples on how these initiatives are contributing to improve the overall performance of the business.
12.30 – 13.15 Packaging – Presentations
Host: Stavros Evangelakakis, Chairman, Cool Chain Association & Head of Global Healthcare, Cargolux
Many pharma products are often highly sensitive to temperature changes. If not packed properly to control the temperature, medicines can often be rendered useless. Hear how the packaging and container companies are working with the industry to create the right cold chain packaging solutions.
13.15 – 14.30 Lunch with Industry Friends and Viewing of Exhibition
14.30 – 14.40 Welcome from the Chairman
Stavros Evangelakakis, Chairman, Cool Chain Association
14.40 – 15.25 Risk Management – Panel discussion
Chair: Nicola Caristo, Secretary General, Cool Chain Association & Senior Quality Manager, SkyCell AG
We all know how Risk Management is a must-have tool for every organization doing business worldwide. This is more relevant for all stakeholders involved in the air freight industry considering the extension and the well-known complexity of the air cargo supply chain. Identifying, assessing, and controlling threats and risks is a key factor to guarantee reliable and successful operation, to enhance the quality of service and to drive change. In this session, we’re going to share our Risk Management approach and methodology as per the dedicated CCA Technical Committee project results.
The following points will be part of our panel discussion:
All mentioned points will be discussed as per Pharma Company, Airlines and Freight Forwarders point of view with the precious support of TIVE as key solution provider operating with temperature data and IATA as the most important Air Cargo Association and regulator.
15.25 – 16.15 Data Sharing Proof of concept – What do we do with data after sharing?
Since Henry Ford introduced his assembly line at the beginning of the twentieth century, this has brought huge improvement in effectiveness to this day. Production workers have become 50 times more productive. When it comes to collecting and especially recording data, we have a completely different story to tell. Since the internet became accessible to many in 1972, we have had to deal with not less but more work. Everyone is trying to make their pearl, but it’s still hard to make a necklace out of it, no matter how much we’d like to. In the next session, our speakers will open the veil to find new avenues that lead to better handling of our data and migrating to a shared reality using Blockchain, among others.
Co-chairs: Gerton Hulsman, CCA Board Director & Commercial Director Commercial Director, Energy in Process GmbH
16.15 – 17:15 Sustainability
Chair: Emma Murray, CEO & Founder, Meantime Communications
There is a need to reduce our carbon footprint on the planet we live on as the climate change is rapidly deteriorating our natural habitats and creating severe issues in different regions of the world in terms of extreme weather conditions, desertification and loss of wildlife. What can the air cargo industry do to reduce the impact of our operations to the environment? What initiatives are currently being implemented? What tangible results can we see so far? And finally, what is the path to continue reducing the damage we are collectively causing to the Earth?
17:15 – 17:30 Closing of the Conference from The Chairman
