The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) has appointed Flexport’s air freight director, Neel Shah, to its board of directors.
Mr. Shah brings nearly two decades of experience to a board he previously served on between 2011 and 2012.
Over the past two years, as global head of air freight at Flexport, he has been responsible for growing the U.S. forwarder’s air cargo activities. Alongside this, his CV boasts stints at U.S. carriers, including Delta and United, where he served as chief cargo officer and VP of sales and marketing, respectively.
Tiaca chairman Sebastiaan Scholte said: “Neel has a strong track record in developing and promoting airfreight across many circles; his knowledge and expertise will be a great asset. His past experience on the Tiaca board further underscores his dedication to improving the air cargo industry, and I am confident he will be a valuable addition.”
Alongside his role at Flexport and board duties at Tiaca, Mr. Shah will also remain a director of Amerijet International and will continue to serve as a senior advisor for Boston Consulting Group.
He said: “Forwarding, like much of the supply chain, is going through a period of great change, and improved collaboration and transparency is paramount to our future. Tiaca is the only association to represent all segments of the air cargo sector, and is a great platform for us to learn from each other, debate, and develop solutions.”
