IATA Appoints Glyn Hughes as Global Head of Cargo

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced the appointment, effective from June 9, of Glyn Hughes as the Association’s next Global Head of Cargo.
Glyn Hughes joined IATA in 1991 to enhance and expand the Cargo Accounts Settlement Service, growing it from 35 to nearly 100 operations while maintaining very low levels of agency default and decreasing overall operating costs for members. In recent years, he has led IATA Cargo’s initiatives, embracing industry management and relationship building, including being part of the Global Air Cargo Advisory Group steering committee. He has led a campaign to promote the value of air cargo, and is taking a principal role in the IATA team working to modernize the cargo agency program.
“I am delighted that Glyn has agreed to become our new Head of Cargo. He has worked very closely with Des Vertannes these past four years and is well placed to continue the important work of driving the transformation of the air cargo business and supporting our members in the delivery of industry objectives. He is well known and respected across the air cargo industry and I know he will have tremendous goodwill and support. Air cargo faces considerable challenges and we have an ambitious goal to improve the industry’s competitiveness through a cut in end-to-end shipping times of up to 48 hours.
Glyn and his team will be dedicated to that goal, as well as to deliver the industry priorities of safety, security, quality, modernization and transformation through the e-cargo agenda,” said Tony Tyler, IATA’s Director General and CEO.
