IATA and ITC Collaborate on Cross-Border Trade
The International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the International Trade Centre (ITC) have teamed up to improve business and air cargo professionals’ access to global trade and air cargo supply chain information.
Through this agreement, ITC and IATA will cross-link their information offerings, including data, to provide trade and cargo professionals with greater access to strategic information.
Users of the multiagency platform Global Trade Helpdesk can now access the IATA ONE source platform for freight forwarder information.
Users of IATA TACT Online will benefit from ITC’s Market Access Map and its information on temporary trade restrictions related to the Ukraine-Russia conflict and COVID-19 measures, as well as up-to-date market demand trends and market access conditions via ITC’s Market Analysis tools.
“In the face of the “three C’s” – COVID, conflict, and climate change – small businesses must strengthen their resilience by adapting their business models and diversifying market risks. Through our collaboration with IATA, ITC assists businesses in adapting to difficult economic conditions and capitalising on emerging opportunities, which is critical for supporting an inclusive global recovery,” Pamela Coke-Hamilton, Executive Director of the International Trade Centre, stated
“While air cargo facilitates global trade, it is a difficult business in which information is critical to success. Our collaboration with ITC will provide our many customers in the air cargo sector with even more market insights on trade. And, as success breeds growth, everyone benefits from expanded trading opportunities,” said Brendan Sullivan, IATA’s Global Head of Cargo.
