This international accreditation will allow them to offer better air freight services and also lead to greater recognition in the industry
Spedition, a Coop member in Delhi, India, has now become a member of IATA (International Air Transport Association).
As a member of IATA they can now deal directly with airlines without any broker. Therefore, it will enable them to become more reliable air freight forwarders offering the best rates to their clients and partners. In the words of Harpreet Singh, the Head of Operations of Spedition, “Becoming an IATA member is the greatest achievement for any freight forwarder specializing in air cargo operations. We are thrilled to have an IATA badge as now we can be more competitive in the air freight business. Additionally, this membership will allow us to be more flexible and offer all kinds of air freight services as per the requirements of our clients and partners.”
Any freight forwarding company offering air freight services and conforming to the right license and legal requirements are eligible for applying for registration as IATA Cargo Agent. However, IATA members have to meet some strict requirements and are obliged to follow a set of government approved resolutions that establish the rights and duties of both the agents and the airlines.
Congratulations to Spedition and all the best for their upcoming projects!
