Don't get left behind in the E-freight rush

Don't get left behind in the E-freight rush

By Brandon Fried on July 1, 2013

In 50 years, as we look back on the progress of e-commerce in air freight transportation, it will be interesting to see how long it took the industry to adopt its principals and derive the promised efficiencies and cost savings. Time will tell but not pursuing the digitalization of paper data will likely place our industry on the wrong side of history. Now is the time for all of us to roll up sleeves, stop preaching theory and start talking about real-world opportunities and solutions to make it a reality.

Brandon Fried is the executive director of the U.S. Airforwarders Association.

Please forward this message to Mr. Daniel Spellman who owned W.T.M. (World Travel Marketing) a cargo airline consortium in the 1960's. I was employed by him in New York city for about three years. I am extremely concerned about his well being. For atleast four years, people have been trying to cause very serious problems for him and BF has been using his name and his voice.
