New firm to boost Iraq’s logistics sector
Dubai, May 7, 2011
Arabian Reach, a leading UAE-based exhibitions and events management company, has launched a major consortium to further boost Iraq’s growing logistics, freight and transportation sectors.
As part of its operations, the Iraq Airports, Aviation and Logistics Consortium (IAALC) will be offering international standard training on all aspects related to the aviation, airports, freight and logistics sectors.
Arabian Reach said that a dedicated training facility will also be established within the consortium headquarters, facilitating people to study the globally recognised Fiata (International Federation of Freight Forwarders Associations) and Iata (International Air Transport Association) diplomas.
The newly formed consortium will also be a member of the Fiata, Iata and The International Air Cargo Association (Tiaca).
Ordinary membership to the consortium is open to airports, and aviation, freight forwarding and logistics companies and offices holding an Iraq licence from the competent authority, Arabian Ranch said in a statement.
“While Iraq’s transportation, freight and logistics sectors are certainly on an upward spiral, the industry needs to take definite steps to sustain this momentum over a long period of time,” said Raj Menon, General Manager, Arabian Reach.
“The establishment of this consortium will help to optimally tap into the available opportunities in the industry, while also achieving the best standards through internationally recognised training programs,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
