Air Cargo Training

Training concept by the Interest Group Air Cargo Switzerland (IGAirCargo) and SPEDLOGSWISS for employees of our member companies.

Since 2019 we have been offering professional air cargo trainings in cooperation with SPEDLOGSWISS. Participants from the first course provided a very positive feedback about the content and lecturer. These courses are aimed at all interested parties such as shippers, importers and logistics service provides, who daily tasks are related to the air cargo sector. They are conducted at Zurich Airport and in the German language.

Perspective and Strategies 2021-2025

 The executive management board of IG Air Cargo discussed and assessed various options and proposals concerning the future course of action of our interest group. The objective is to further strengthen our position in the market and to offer attractive and useful benefits to our members and supporters. Therefore, new guiding principles and strategic key areas of activity were formulated.

The voice of Air Cargo in Switzerland

Our Interest Group is the umbrella organisation of Switzerland’s Air Cargo Community, and in this role, we are setting clear priorities and act as dynamic driver to represent and enforce the community’s interests.

Swiss Air Cargo Study 2020

 In 2010, Prof. Stölzle of UniSG, supported by a group of interested sponsors, conducted a study on "airfreight as a competitive factor for Switzerland as a business location". It was the first study of its kind and generated a lot of goodwill and transparency for this important means of transport, especially for the Swiss export industry. Ten years later IG Air Cargo and the Institute of Supply Chain Management of University St. Gallen have engaged again to produce a new comprehensive study of the airfreight logistics sector in Switzerland. Presented at the National Air Cargo Day on August 26, 2020 at the Verkehrshaus in Lucerne, the new 2020 Swiss Airfreight Logistics Study is ready. It is available as printed hardcopy (DE & FR version) and as downloadable PDF (EN, DE & FR version. Read More to order or download the 2020 Swiss Air Freight Study.

DataChecker Swiss Pilot
