Air cargo operators to tap into new data-driven market analysis
The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA) will provide new market and route analyses to its members as the result of an intelligence sharing agreement with CLIVE Data Services.
TIACA’s deal is designed to deliver timely and accurate market data and aims to show the air cargo industry in the best possible light to all industry stakeholders, regulators and relevant government ministries.
Steven Polmans, chairman of TIACA, said the group is promising to provide its membership with more content that “accurately represents and promotes the global air cargo industry”.
“CLIVE’s dynamic load factor is registering a lot of interest because it breaks with tradition and is changing the way air cargo usage is measured based on the realities of today’s market,” Polmans said.
“It is also the fastest source of data, which is also very appealing for our members.”
TIACA said its members want education on air cargo economics and more market-based data and analysis.
Under the terms of the agreement, CLIVE will provide market data for TIACA’s Cargo Pulse newsletter as well as regular market trends content for social media and speakers at the association’s conferences on market and route trends.
CLIVE’s first-to-market analysis consolidates data shared by a representative group of international airlines operating to all corners of the globe.
Based on both the volume and weight perspectives of the cargo flown and capacity available, it gives the air cargo industry the earliest possible barometer of market.
CLIVE Data Services, which has also joined TIACA to enhance this collaboration, will deliver its first market analyses to the association’s members this month.
