TIACA’s roots go back to 1960, when a committee of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) in the U.S. launched the first International Air Cargo Forum to explore the needs of the emerging air cargo industry. The efforts of the founders centered on the need to stimulate interest in the new and growing air cargo business. They worked to develop common standards in air cargo equipment, ground handling, and procedures for this emerging industry.

TIACA is truly global in scope and outlook. Its members represent all geographical regions of the world. The Association is governed by its Trustee members, which represent many of the world’s major companies in the air cargo industry. The Trustees in turn elect the Board of Directors to manage the organization’s affairs and establish its policy.

TIACA is a not for profit trade association for the air cargo industry, pledged to support and assist progressive liberalization of the global market, and easier, enhanced trade between developing and developed economies. It is a worldwide organization that serves a membership which includes all major segments of the air cargo and logistics industry; airlines, forwarders, airports, ground handlers, all-cargo carriers, road carriers, customs brokers, third party logistics companies, integrators, shippers, and educational institutions.

To accomplish its mission and role, TIACA engages in activities that are geared to improve industry cooperation, promote innovation, share knowledge, enhance quality and efficiency, and develop educational programs. TIACA’s activities are aimed to inform both the public and its membership about the role and importance of air cargo, industry developments and technical trends.

TIACA publishes industry position papers, the TIACA Times newsletter and the weekly Regulatory Update. The TIACA website is a valuable industry resource which contains a fully searchable database of information on industry issues. TIACA has developed research relationships with several universities through joint projects and student scholarship programs.
