#TIACAES17 Speaker Spotlight: Glyn Hughes, IATA
Digitization — Revolution or Hype?
By 2025, 15–20% of air freight shipments will be booked directly with the airline, according to a recent survey by McKinsey.
Does this spell the end of the traditional air cargo industry or the beginning of a new exciting chapter?
Glyn has been involved in air cargo for over 30 years, having started his career with British Caledonian in the UK. He joined IATA in 1991, and became IATA’s Global Head of Cargo in June 2014.
He has the overall responsibility to ensure IATA delivers on the agenda agreed by the Cargo Committee to support the air cargo industry. Priority areas include safety, security, quality, special cargo, operations, modernization and industry sustainability.
He is dedicated to working closely with industry stakeholder partners through GACAG and other relationships to foster collaborative solutions. A firm believer in supporting the next generation of industry leaders, Glyn spends a large amount of time on outreach programs with training and other educational establishments.
