WASHINGTON - Jan. 24, 2018 - PRLog -- The Airforwarders Association (AfA) is pleased to announce that it has now signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA). The AfA represents the interests of companies and individuals that are  operating within the United States and engaged in the business of air freight. The AfA's membership includes domestic and foreign freight forwarders, direct air carriers, ground carriers and affiliated businesses throughout the global transportation community; its member companies take responsibility for moving cargo in the timeliest and most cost-efficient manner both domestically and internationally.

The AfA Board will in turn attend TIACA's Air Cargo Forum, held in Toronto this coming October."

The MoU signed between the AfA and TIACA is the first stage of an alliance between both organizations, enabling them to strengthen cooperation on aviation matters by:
  • Shared participation in each other's events
  • Mutual promotion through social media
  • Continuous consultation, conferring and cooperation
