Successful 7th OPENAP AGM

Discover your Air Cargo DNA ..


Another Year of Excellence

Greece, the top luxury travel destination, with its rich history and culture, service excellence, majestic natural beauty and lifestyle, was the host country of #OPENAP23!

NAP’s 7th AGM & OPENAP, took place from 21st to 25nd May 2023 in Costa Navarino, Peloponnese, one of the most unspoiled and breath-taking landscapes in the Mediterranean.

Neutral Air Partner gathered over 300 members and guests from around the world for an inspiring networking experience, to address the biggest issues that are shaking and shaping the air cargo logistics industry, by providing a unique platform for the exchange of ideas, views, and solutions.

During OPENAP23 we connected the future-ready leaders with innovators around the globe, and promoted resourceful discussions and face-to-face interactions, aiming to set positive-disruption standards for the air cargo logistics community.

In the spotlight this year was the NAP ecosystem, showcasing top-tier air cargo logistics experts from its six sub-industry networks, alongside strategic partner airlines, vendors, and influential figures in the supply chain, providing the platform for remarkable conversations, fruitful face-to-face meetings and sparking meaningful collaborations.

The key takeaways

Presentations and
Panel discussions

The air cargo industry remains promising, and the fastest and safest freight transport option. It is witnessing the resilience, adaptability and innovation of its stakeholders, who implement measures such as specialized cargo terminals, digital integration, and sustainability initiatives.

Innovation, and AI progress at light speed and will help in optimizing all air cargo operational levels. Drones will expand the capabilities of air cargo transport. The role of sustainability and ESG is becoming imperative.

E-commerce is one of the most significant prospective success drivers in the freight industry.  Volumes continued to grow and drive a shift in the types of cargo being shipped by air, from larger quantities to smaller packages. And NeX-ecommerce supply chain hub is the new player. NeX Co-Founder & Chairman Rudee Bertie, and CEO Justus Klüver-Schlotfeldt “Soft-Launched” NeX eCommerce Supply Chain Hub during OPENAP23. They share their excitement and gratitude for the overwhelming support received.
