Need for speed: Shippers want the air cargo industry to move more quickly

The chairman of the Global Shippers’ Forum (GSF) has called on the air cargo industry to strive for faster supply chains in order to make the most of the opportunity presented by e-commerce.

Sean van Dort took up the role of GSF chairman in May. He followed in the footsteps of Bob Ballantyne, chief executive of the Freight Management Association of Canada, who had chaired the organisation since its incorporation in 2011.

Van Dort is director of logistics and digital services integration for MAS Capital, a major apparel manufacturer based in Colombo, Sri Lanka, and he has been a member of the GSF board since 2015. Until recently, he was chairman of the Sri Lankan Shippers’ Council.
