Advocates for the Air Cargo Industry

The first ever U.S. Air Cargo Industry Affairs Summit (USACIA) in Washington, DC. was a great success with attendance of close to 200 delegates. The informative program covered a wide range of topics related to real-life issues that companies face, including meeting regulatory requirements, upcoming changes in administration and to promote the importance of air cargo.
