Air cargo quality standards organisation Cargo iQ has welcomed new member Avianca Cargo to its community.

The cargo carrier will work with Cargo iQ and its own customers towards their shared goal for enhanced best practices in the air cargo supply chain.

Leonel Ortiz, head of cargo development at Avianca Cargo, said: “Our main motivation for joining is that we share a common mission with Cargo iQ and that is the constant quest to apply common global standards and improve quality to promote a better global air cargo industry.

“In addition, it is also aligned with our purpose to strengthen our processes, elevate our value proposition, generate efficiencies, and ensure higher quality of products and services to our customers.”

Avianca Cargo operates around 200 weekly cargo flights and is based at José María Córdova International Airport in Medellín, Colombia.

The airline will help its partners and suppliers adhere to international standards and practices to ensure efficiency in the overall supply chain, to drive improved service quality control.

Lothar Moehle, executive director of Cargo iQ, said: “As Cargo iQ grows its representation in the Latin America region, Avianca Cargo will be supporting our efforts to bring more actors in the chain on board and align them to Cargo iQ standards.”

Avianca Cargo states it will contribute to projects that look for ways to close data gaps and protect shipment quality, collaborating with other members in the industry.

Oritz added: “This will facilitate the exchange of best practices and experiences that will contribute to further strengthening our processes and efficiencies. In an industry where reliability and visibility are critical factors, building these capabilities and being part of a recognised organisation can make a difference in customer preference.”
