Vienna Airport will serve as the venue hosting two important industry events. On Monday, 9 October 2023, the airport is inviting the entire air cargo community to the first Vienna Cargo Day. News and trends on the issues of sustainability, hydrogen and digitalisation will be presented and discussed together with all key players in the sector. Furthermore, the latest news about the new Air Cargo Academy in the Vienna AirportCity will be announced.
At the Vienna Cargo Day current and future developments in cargo handling, the cargo community and the AirportCity with respect to sustainability and digitalisation will be presented by Michael Zach, Vice President Sales, Finance & Cargo, Ground Handling & Cargo Operations of Vienna Airport, Wolfgang Scheibenpflug, Senior Vice President Real Estate & Landside Management of Vienna Airport and Peter Reulbach, Senior Manager Cargo Business Development and Cargo Community Manager of Vienna Airport. The speech of Prof. Sebastian Krummer, Head of the Institute for Transport and Logistics Management of the Vienna University of Economics and Business will shift the focus to the possibilities opened up by hydrogen as an energy source as well as an emission-free supply chain. The cargo community includes airlines, freight forwarders, handling and customers agents as well as transport companies from all over Austria as well as air cargo specialists from neighbouring Eastern European countries and Central Europe.
“The close cooperation of everyone involved in the air cargo transport chain is a major advantage of our hub. The first Vienna Caro Day provides us with a new platform enabling the regular exchange of views and further impetus on current issues such as sustainability and digitalisation,” states Michael Zach, Vice President Sales, Finance & Cargo, Ground Handling & Cargo Operations at Vienna Airport.
“Today the Vienna AirportCity ranks among the most successful such airport cities in Europe and something we are proud of. At the same time, we still have a lot to do, especially when it comes to the further implementation of sustainable practices and innovative technologies in real estate development. We still have unused capacities available at Vienna Airport for further business location projects,” explains Wolfgang Scheibenpflug, Senior Vice President Real Estate and Landside Management at Vienna Airport.
