Air Cargo Training

Training concept by the Interest Group Air Cargo Switzerland for employees of our member companies.

At the end of 2019 we offered for the  first time in Zurich a professional air cargo training in cooperation with SPEDLOGSWISS. There were 9 participants mainly out of the forwarding business and they provided a very positive feedback about the content and instructor. A second "Luftfracht Kompakt" training seminar will be offered starting on April 22nd 2020, again for the greater Zurich.

 Luftfracht Kompakt Training starting on 22.04.2020 Flyer (PDF - German)


We plan to offer such a course in the region of EAP-Basel-Mulhouse in the second half of 2020 and are evaluating the possibility for the area of Geneva.

Swiss Air Cargo Study 2020

New Swiss Air Freight Logistics Study 2020

 In 2010, Prof. Stölzle of UniSG, supported by a group of interested sponsors, conducted a study on "air freight as a competitive factor for Switzerland as a business location". It was the first study of its kind and generated a lot of goodwill and transparency for this important means of transport, especially for the Swiss export industry. For spring 2020 we are preparing a new and updated study with a printed version of 5000 copies in German plus 1000 in French for broad distribution as well as a PDF version for direct download from this website.  Presentation of the findings and its highlights will be at the occasion of the National Air Cargo Day on April 16, 2020 in the Verkehrshaus in Lucerne. More information to follow in due time.


eTrans (eTransformation)

eTrans, short for eTransformation is a community driven project to achieve concrete results and benefits from the various digitalization projects involving Air Cargo. Starting from eAWB, eFreight and the related IATA initiatives.


DataChecker Swiss Pilot

 The DataChecker Pilot in Switzerland is a joint initiative of IG Air Cargo and Champ Cargosystems. The idea is to develop and test an IT solution that analyses advanced content of Air Cargo data messages when they are exchanged between Freight Forwarders and Airlines. Existing flows of FWB/FHL messages are fed to an engine to produce statistical data. Freight Forwarders in Switzerland can participate free of charge to the pilot phase till the end of 2019.

ZRH Gate 105 Opening Hours

 Small project to evaluate if longer opening hours of Gate 105 at Zurich Airport would lead to a better utilisation, more capacity, less delays or better quality. Project concluded.
