FTA is campaigning for policies to create a world class sustainable air freight sector. Air freight already accounts 40% of UK imports and exports by value and is crucial for the future of global Britain. FTA represents businesses across the air freight supply chain, including carriers, airports, forwarders, supply companies and shippers in sectors such as pharmaceuticals, manufacturing, and fast parcels which rely on air freight. 

This seminar will be delivered as a Chatham House Rules discussion on how to achieve sustainable growth for the UK air freight sector and will be relevant for a broad range of logistics companies, ranging from air cargo operators, customers, forwarders to Government representatives and other supply chain stakeholders. The event will provide a great opportunity to engage with the members of FTA’s Air Council and to influence FTA policy on aviation as well as build your business network, alongside meeting the leading figures in the sector.
