Peter Whitfield, chairman and co-founder of the Neutral Air Partner network, knows that *anyone who wants to get anywhere in the transport industry today joins a logistics network But ever more of these are not as useful as they could be, on account of their general approach. In addition their members’ financial situation, industry experi-ence or business specialization is frequently not assessed either.*
Whitfield is an industry veteran with half a century’s experience, and he believes that *the airfreight segment needs a network of exclusive air cargo experts and suppliers. It needs joint tools and innovative IT solu-tions, together with the right mechanisms for financial protection.*
Hong Kong, Mumbai, Shanghai…
Neutral Air Partner’s ambition is to be a global network of leading and independent air cargo experts. The grouping’s aim is to provide innovative air cargo solutions to the international transport, freight, logic tics, shipping and aviation segments.
Whitfield has launched an offensive leading up to the Air Cargo India conference, which is taking place in Mumbai Peter on 23-25 February. As the representative of the only network that focuses on air-freight he believes that Neutral offers the industry’s multifarious players – from GSAs to wholesalers, from charter brokers to express service firms – advantages that a more general platform cannot provide.
After its Indian stopover the network will present itself at the Air Cargo China event, scheduled for Shanghai in mid-June. Independent service providers are due to meet for the first time there at their so-called Air Cargo Summit, to discuss and prepare joint business activities.
