HINDA WILL PRESENT THE 2012 GOLDEN CARROT AWARDS DURING THE MOTIVATION SHOW
–Apple and Mach 1 Global Services Are Recognized
October 23, 2012 (Chicago) – Hinda Incentives has announced the winners of the prestigious Golden Carrot Award, which will be presented at the Hinda Incentives headquarters on Tuesday, October 23rd at 11:30 a.m. in conjunction with the Motivation Show.

Apple and Mach 1 Global Services, Hinda’s home delivery carrier, were selected as this year’s winners by demonstrating a solid commitment to providing innovation, service and cutting-edge products to the multi-billion-dollar incentive market. Hinda’s Golden Carrot Award recognizes its supplier partners who have consistently demonstrated dedication to the field of incentives.

“When you put two top companies like Apple and Hinda together, it results in a great partnership. Candice Lacrosse (Sr. Account Manager, Corporate Gifting & Rewards for Apple, Great Lakes Region), has worked very hard with our team to include Apple products in our programs in a timely manner. We are both dedicated to delivering the best product and the best service to our award winners. Candice and Apple have been supportive and are an important partner,” says Rick Bowen, Hinda’s Merchandise Manager.

“It’s an honor to receive the Golden Carrot Award; we’re very excited about it. We have built a solid relationship with both Rick Bowen and Michelle Flores (Hinda’s Merchandise Buyer) and only see that relationship growing.

Now I feel like we are an extension of Hinda,” says Thomsen. Mach 1 Global Services CEO, Jamie Fletcher, based in Phoenix, will also attend the award presentation.

Areas of Concern
The global air cargo industry faces its share of challenges. These include:

High fuel costs. Fuel costs continue to impact air freight, but most players view the price volatility as a cost of doing business over which they have little control. Fuel represents almost half the global expenses for air cargo carrier Cargolux, for example, and the first-quarter fuel bill at Southwest Airlines Cargo was $478 million higher in 2012 than in 2011.
Europe’s economic woes. “The economic crisis is heavily impacting the European airfreight market, with the exception of Germany, which has a strong economy,” says Michael Steen, chairman of The International Air Cargo Association (TIACA). As declining consumer confidence weakens demand, the implications for the global economy—and airfreight demand, specifically—are uncertain.
Nearshoring. A nearshoring trend is bringing some U.S. brand manufacturing back to Mexico from China, leading to a mode shift from air to over-the-road.
Many of freight forwarder Mach 1 Global Services’ customers have moved production from China to India or Vietnam. In the past two years, several companies have returned to Mexico based on current total landed cost calculations.

“Many companies actually spent more moving to China,” says Rob Lively, chief operating officer, Mach 1 Global Services. An airfreight shipment from China to the United States that costs $20,000 might cost just $7,000 from Mexico.

While air cargo carriers face challenges, they also can seize opportunities. Developing markets are a particularly bright spot. As labor rates rise in coastal China, many manufacturers are shifting production to the country’s inland regions, Asian countries west of China, Africa, and South America, particularly Brazil. Interest is also growing in Russia.

Airfreight carriers are responding with new routes and services to these developing locations. Lufthansa, for example, operates a cool pharmaceutical hub in India to accommodate pharma shippers.

The outlook for domestic air cargo traffic is a mixed bag. North American carriers showed a 6.4-percent drop in demand with a 2.9-percent cut in capacity in April 2012, compared to April 2011, according to IATA. But growing U.S. consumer and business confidence has many experts optimistic about the balance of 2012.

For largely domestic air cargo carrier Southwest Airlines, 2012 is far surpassing the past few years, with stable vertical markets such as life sciences, pharmaceuticals, and diagnostic specimens—as well as the more volatile electronics, retail, and automotive industries—all doing well.

The airline is poised to introduce a GPS solution that enables shippers to track the location and condition of high-value, time-critical, or other important shipments. Air cargo users such as Quick International Courier, a Southwest customer, view GPS as adding even more visibility to a supply chain that has already benefitted from technology’s ability to transact and track shipments.

For example, life sciences customers will be able to ensure a package’s temperature and integrity are maintained. “We’ve always had to give up control at some point,” says Robert Mitzman, president and CEO of Quick International Courier. “Eventually, we will have visibility into a shipment’s entire trip.”

In the expedited domestic market, shippers and forwarders have faced capacity constraints in the past year. “We’re holding our own; supply is meeting demand,” says Lively. But issues such as rising fuel costs, shrinking capacity, increasing regulations, and customers accepting longer transit times in exchange for lower costs concern him. “The long-term direction of the domestic airfreight market is uncertain,” he adds.

Ever-Increasing Security
Moving goods safely and securely is a priority for airfreight carriers. But mounting regulation is challenging their ability to operate efficiently. Costs associated with security today are 10 times more than in 2001, reports Lufthansa.

“Security is a double-edged sword,” says Lively. “Protecting the public is paramount, but it is hurting the industry, and poses a challenge for all air cargo carriers. We are collectively trying to find a middle ground.”

In May 2012, the U.S. Transportation Security Agency (TSA) set a Dec. 3, 2012, deadline for passenger air carriers to begin conducting 100-percent cargo screening for explosives on international flights bound for the United States, as prescribed in the 9/11 Commission Act. Currently, about 80 percent of all incoming international cargo and 100 percent of high-risk international cargo is screened, according to the TSA.

The requirements build risk-based, intelligence-driven procedures into the prescreening process, with enhanced screening for high-risk shipments, and other physical screening protocols for lower-risk shipments.

Complying with this requirement has proved challenging for air cargo carriers. “TSA has no jurisdiction overseas,” notes AFA’s Fried. “Carriers have to enter into agreements with other countries to screen cargo the way the United States does.”

Efforts to harmonize requirements among countries are moving slower than hoped, and the AFA anticipates that if the United States can’t get other governments to cooperate, the burden will shift to carriers. “If that’s the case, airlines will probably not be totally prepared, leading to congestion, delays, and missed flights,” Fried says. The organization advocates a program that differentiates screening requirements for frequent, known shippers from occasional shippers.
