Meerbusch, Germany – The 22nd CNS Partnership Conference will take place from 6 to 8 May 2012 in Miami, USA. Riege Software International, an experienced supplier of comprehensive software solutions for air and sea freight management as well as customs, will be a sponsor of the event and present a stand showcasing their technology. The CNS Partnership Conference is seen as the most important annual event for the air freight industry in the USA. Every year about 500 top-level representatives from airlines, freight forwarders, shippers and service providers from the USA and worldwide take part.

This year the conference gathers under the slogan “Together Towards Tomorrow” and will focus in particular on the need for a common approach by the industry towards challenges such as quality management, e-commerce, security, environment, etc. The conference offers opportunities for an exchange of knowledge and experience in critical areas of the industry via numerous presentations, training events and networking sessions.

For more than 10 consecutive years, Riege Software International has taken part in the CNS conference which is a subsidiary of IATA (International Air Transport Association). This year the company is represented by three delegates. Alongside founder and owner Johannes Riege will be Tim Mitchell, Managing Director Americas, and Marketing Director Benjamin Riege will participate for the first time.

“CNS activities place particular emphasis on the implementation of their e-freight initiative. We support this initiative as a certified supplier and with our software we can make an important contribution to realizing e-freight. This is what we want to discuss with the participating experts,” said Johannes Riege, outlining his goals for the conference.

With its e-freight initiative IATA aims to introduce paperless air freight transport to all relevant routes by 2015. A major challenge is the electronic transmission of accompanying data and documents between all parties involved in the transport chain. Riege intensively supports the program and has been a certified Cargo 2000 partner for information technology since 2008.

Experts from the company will be demonstrating the current version of the innovative transport management system Scope and will be discussing with industry experts how the system can simplify the individual process steps for all involved parties.
