Cooperation between brokers and operators is always a tug-of-war, with everyone trying to defend their interests. Due to a lack of understanding of the processes on each side, additional costs appear, along with technical problems, low profits, and most importantly, the overall mission becomes more difficult to perform.
The upcoming online event “Mastering Effective Urgent Air Cargo Charters. Theory and Practice for Brokers and Logistics Specialists” is aimed to facilitate the way professionals in the aviation and logistics sectors approach urgent charters. In celebration of AVEM AERO’s 5th anniversary, this dynamic event is set to revolutionise how aviation and logistics experts tackle time-critical charters. It is designed for a wide range of industry players, from experienced logistics experts to aspiring brokers eager to establish their unique market presence.
“We work in a business with very short time intervals. Most of the time our plane takes off within 2 hours after booking. That’s why a high degree of communication is desirable due to quick turnaround. My philosophy is that the current system where the operator does business with the broker and the broker deals with the client, is of benefit to all. To make it happen we need to know exactly how to be effective on both sides”, says Nikolay Kurbanov, Managing Director at AVEM AERO.
“One of the most significant challenges in our market is that each business works in silo. They each have their own processes and ways of working that don’t match their suppliers and clients. This creates process inefficiencies across the market. Coupled with the use of traditional communication, it means that it can become difficult to connect and to streamline and optimise workflow. Technology can be very effective at automating repetitive tasks which, in turn, results in greater operational efficiency,” observes Simon Watson, Director & Co-Founder of CharterSync.
The event agenda seeks to provide attendees with practical insights on how to improve the results of urgent missions, raise the margins due to effective time and resources management, get more from communication with operators, handling companies, and civil aviation authorities.
“The urgent air charter niche is a small world. So it may be difficult for the new entrants into the market lacking experience and relationships, causing communication difficulties in the whole supply chain. But the more steady brokers like the big ones go on, it’s becoming a friendly relationship again,” says Nicolas Janssen, Operational Director at ZEUS.aero.
It provides an opportunity to get insights from professionals in the urgent air cargo charter market with 10+ years of experience:
