Air Cargo Belgium

As the air cargo community representation, ACB (Air Cargo Belgium) strives to make BRUcargo the most attractive, efficient, innovative and successful logistical platform.
On behalf of airlines, handlers, forwarders, the airport authority and other stakeholders, we set out strategic and ambitious goals for the development of air cargo. We put in place procedures for improved operations, take the lead in projects and we get in contact with all stakeholders and government agencies to address topics of common interest. We do this by a strong community cooperation and approach.
At all times, our goals and objectives are in the interest of the air cargo community as a group and to the overall benefit of our industry.

One of the Air Cargo Belgium workinggroups focuses on the HR and training related projects at BRUcargo. In association with Brussels Airport House we will kickstart:

Air Cargo Academy

Air Cargo Academy aims to establish a training center that offers demand-driven training, tailored to the (new) needs of the airfreight sector. There will be a strong focus on innovative teaching methods such as: e-learning, blended learning, virtual / augmented reality implementation, etc.

This makes it possible to respond to the needs of the sector, to develop a customized training program and to transfer innovative trends on BRUcargo to the training needs of the cargo companies. The Air Cargo Academy will include the current activities of Cargo Training Center in its operation. In the short term, this training center should become the cargo pillar of the Brussels Airport Academy. The Air Cargo Academy will initially focus on the 100 companies and their 5,000 employees based at BRUcargo. In addition, the project will also focus on knowledge institutions with logistics training programs.

Are you the self-starting professional with the hands-on approach we are looking for?
