New Cargo iQ Board appointed as membership engagement schemes progress forward

The Board members were formally welcomed to their posts this week as Marie Seco-Köppen prepares to take over as Cargo iQ Executive Director next month

A new Cargo iQ Board has been welcomed this week, as our organisation prepares to launch two major new initiatives to drive up membership engagement and welcome a new Executive Director next month.

Two Board members are completely new to the post, including Fanny Chan, Head of Cargo Global Operations at Cathay Pacific Airways; and Olaf Hagelstein, SVP, Global Head of Operations, Processes & Systems – Air Freight, DHL Global Forwarding (both pictured below).

They join Hendrik Leyssens, VP Process, Planning and Project Delivery, Emirates; Jussi Lemola, Vice President, Global Operations – Cargo, Swissport; Rutger-Jan Pegels (RJ), Director Performance Management, Air France KLM Martinair Cargo; and Klaas Kurz, Director Aviation Security & Governance, Schenker AG, who were all re-elected to their posts. Pegels also serves as Vice Chair of Cargo iQ.

“These individuals bring with them a wealth of knowledge and valuable expertise that will help steer and advise our organisation during a year of exciting changes,” said Lothar Moehle, outgoing Cargo iQ Executive Director.

“Their appointments come as we prepare to launch two major initiatives that will result in enhanced cooperation and collaboration across the air cargo chain, and with our new Executive Director Marie Seco-Köppen driving implementation.”

The new Board was formally welcomed to their new posts at Cargo iQ’s Working Group meeting, which is taking place this week in Geneva, Switzerland.

The Cargo iQ Board is made up of 11 voting members, including representatives from Air France KLM Martinair, Cargomind (Austria), Cathay Pacific, DB Schenker, DHL Global Forwarding, Emirates SkyCargo, Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, Kuehne+Nagel, Lufthansa Cargo, Qatar Airways Cargo and Swissport International, supported by observers Riege Software, FIATA, and ASA, and advisor Im3Pact AG.

Marie Seco-Köppen, co-founder of Im3pact and currently Chair of the Cargo iQ Master Operating Plan (MOP) Working Group, is to replace Lothar Moehle as Cargo iQ Executive Director in May.

The new initiatives Cargo iQ plans to roll out include a Tiered Membership program that awards members Bronze, Silver, or Gold membership, according to their level of implementation and their conformance to reporting.

A new scorecard system is also to launch, which will be open to both members and non-members alike, enabling them to measure their own, and their partners’ performance against Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) derived from Master Operating Plan (MOP) milestones and data exchange between parties.

Both initiatives are currently being piloted by the Cargo iQ Board and are expected to go live later this year.
