For the first time, The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) has appointed to its board a director from a GSSA – ECS Group Chairman Bertrand Schmoll. With this appointment, TIACA has brought together all stakeholders in the air freight supply chain for a truly comprehensive representation of the freight industries.
The decision to appoint a representative of a GSSA to the board for the first time demonstrates the sector’s dynamism and its significant contribution to the development of the industry.
“I think that since we are representing the whole air cargo supply chain it is great to have such a high-profile GSA on board” said Sebastiaan SCHOLTE, TIACA Chairman.
“The air freight industry is a real microcosm, with its own rules and customs and its wide range of stakeholders. An organization such as TIACA is the glue that holds us all together and allows us to move forwards together despite our sometimes-divergent interests. Thanks to the remarkable work undertaken by TIACA, led by Sebastiaan Scholte, Steven Polmans and Vladimir Zubkov, our practices are being modernized and air freight is becoming more appealing. As such, it’s a real honour for me to have been appointed to the TIACA Board of Directors, with whom I share the desire to bring efficiency, modernization and unity to the industry,” said Bertrand Schmoll.
Since beginning at ECS Group in 2000, Bertrand Schmoll has been a driving force in its development and modernization. With more than 30 GSSA acquisitions to his name and a carefully crafted expansion strategy, Bertrand Schmoll has made a huge contribution to positioning ECS Group as a global market leader – as well as to the development of the GSSA sector and its activities.
