Glyn Hughes joined IATA in 1991 to enhance and
expand the Cargo Accounts Settlement Service, growing it from 35

agency default and decreasing overall operating costs for members.
In recent years, he has led IATA Cargo’s
initiatives, embracing industry management and relationship
building, including being part of the Global Air Cargo Advisory

He has also led a campaign to promote the
value of air cargo, and is taking a principal role in the IATA
team working to modernize the cargo agency program.
Tony Tyler, IATA’s Director General and CEO,
said, “I am delighted that Glyn has agreed to become our new Head
of Cargo. He has worked very closely with Des Vertannes these past
four years and is well placed to continue the important work of
driving the transformation of the air cargo business and
supporting our members in the delivery of industry objectives. He
is well known and respected across the air cargo industry and I
know he will have tremendous goodwill and support. Air cargo faces
considerable challenges and we have an ambitious goal to improve
the industry’s competitiveness through a cut in end-to-end
shipping times of up to 48 hours.”
