market Hartsfield-Jackson at China cargo conference
Aviation officials are gearing up for the Air Cargo China 2010 Exhibition and Conference in Shanghai. Organizers, who label the June 8-10 transport and logistics event “Asia’s most important business event for air cargo,” expected more than 12,000 visitors from 72 countries.
Hartsfield-Jackson’s Marketing and Business Development team, members of the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce and other Georgia business leaders will have an opportunity to meet with cargo carriers and to position the Airport as the global gateway to North America.
“Shanghai is home to the world’s largest airlines, freight forwarders, express operators and logistic service providers; it’s also the perfect venue for us to introduce the world’s most efficient airport to new carriers with a limited or nonexistent presence in the United States,” said Warren Jones, Aviation development manager.
The conference includes a ceremony to present Air Cargo Week’s World Air Cargo Awards on June 9. Hartsfield-Jackson is a finalist for the Airport of the Year award, which it won last year — making it the first U.S. airport to win the prestigious award. The other finalists this year are Changi (Singapore), Incheon (South Korea) and Hong Kong international airports.
Winning the top award in 2009 “was an unforgettable moment for Hartsfield-Jackson and its employees to be recognized for outstanding achievements in cargo operations and passenger service,” Jones said. “Companies can always rely on our exceptional service, even as we expand our list of quality air carriers.”
