12 Oct Enroll in the ICAO-TIACA Safe Supply Chain virtual training course
This is open to all GLA members
The ICAO-TIACA Safe Supply Chain virtual training course to take place this October 2020, will address the current safety issues in the air cargo supply chain.
The development of this new course comes as a result of a recent Memorandum of Understanding signed between The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), where TIACA entered into a Corporate Partnership with the ICAO’s TRAINAIR PLUS Programme.
ICAO has worked actively with TIACA’s strategic learning and development partner – Strategic Aviation Solutions International (SASI), to deliver this course.
The restriction measures put in place by governments all over the world in an effort to contain the spread of the COVID-19 disease in the respective populations has led to an unprecedented increase in the volume of e-commerce shipments. This has inevitably amplified the risk of dangerous goods, such as lithium batteries, entering the air cargo supply chain. Disrupting this flow and tackling the hazards that dangerous goods pose to the operators, is essential for the safety of the employees of the carriers and handlers of the shipments.
Purpose of the Course:
This course will provide the entities in the air and mail cargo supply chain with the necessary knowledge and skills to work together effectively to ensure that cargo is handled appropriately in a safe & efficient manner within the ICAO’s regulatory framework. The course also addresses the ‘what causes’ and ‘why it could impact’ the safety of the supply chain through an understanding of the global market and supply chain trends.
• Recognize the economic impact of air cargo globally
• Analyze supply chain trends affecting the safety of the supply chain
• Identify various elements involved in the supply chain which would pose safety hazards
• Recognize the role of multiple stakeholders in ensuring a safe supply chain
• Explain ICAO’s role and method of facilitating a safe supply chain
• Apply mitigation methods for identified risks
All stakeholders in the air cargo supply chain including regulators, carriers, ground handling agents, logistics service providers, online retailers and shippers. Levels – safety inspectors, safety and risk managers and senior supervisors and DG specialists.
