  7. Freight forwarder survey Sent to 44 air freight forwarders at IAD

  8. Develop VIP-IAD Relationship Current Operations “Milk Run” Build Airfreight Consolidation Facility Cost Incentives Plan Freighter Service New Customer Niche Market IAD Freight Forwarder Study Proposed Alternatives

  9. Criteria • Feasibility • Cost and Benefit • Sustainability

  10. Develop VIP-IAD Relationship • Cargo movements are increasing • Import/Export Ration is 2:1 • VIP not handling time sensitive shipments • Not much opportunity for operational link • Marketing link is possible

  11. Freighter Service • Current lack of capacity • Not subject to “Known Shipper” rules • Cargo volume must be guaranteed • Demand determines service

  12. New Customer • Manufacturer • Freight Consolidator • Freight forwarder or integrator • Costs could be shared by several stakeholders

  13. Develop Niche Market • Household and personal effects market • Approval for a TSA Known Shipper waiver program • Get Known Shipper status for certain U.S. Government employees

  14. Freight Forwarder Study • Research and focus on freight forwarders • Bring new customers to IAD • Understand the needs and risks of the business • Establish a forum for cargo development

  15. Recommendations • Build a relationship of mutual understanding and operations with regional freight forwarders • Develop the resources and environment necessary to encourage a new major air freight customer to relocate to the region

  16. Recommendations • Facilitate growth of a niche market centered on movement of household goods and personal effects • Continue efforts to attract the operation of a freighter service at IAD

  17. Conclusion • Not mutually exclusive alternatives • Freight forwarders are critical • Develop demand for air freight • Results will require time and patience
