Impact of COVID-19: How are logistics companies coping with the crisis in airfreight and what can we learn from this?

On 28 May 2020, CHINALUX, with supporting partners the Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce and Cluster for Logistics Luxembourg, held a webinar entitled:

Impact of COVID-19: How are logistics companies coping with the crisis in airfreight and what can we learn from this?

This was CHINALUX’s first webinar since public events were suspended earlier this year. When exploring what topics would be interesting for members and friends during these times, it was a natural choice to look at the logistics sector. As we all know, great efforts have been made across China and Luxembourg in terms of logistics, in particular the movement of medical equipment.

The webinar commenced with words of welcome from King Zhujun Xie, President, CHINALUX; Cindy Tereba, Director International Affairs, Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce; and, Malik Zeniti, Director, Cluster for Logistics Luxembourg. Following, four industry professionals were invited to deliver presentations and answer questions from the webinar participants.

Firstly, from Cargolux Airlines, Stavros Evangelakakis, Head of Global Healthcare, and Eric Erbacher, Director Charter Services & ACMI, covered the topics of the learnings from difficulties for medical equipment for airfreight during the COVID-19 lockdown and how the airfreight industry reacted to COVID-19 and the lack of belly freight capacity respectively.

Next, Arnaud Lambert, CEO of CHAMP Cargosystems, explored the subject of air cargo’s “Corona Problem” and its potential impact on the recovery, after which, Johannes Roos, Director of Tuomi explored the visibility of supply chains and how it can be improved.

Our thanks to all speakers, panellists and our partners, without whom this webinar would not have been possible. We look forward to continuing discussions and learning more on this subject.
