Interview with CHAMP's VP Global Sales and Marketing, Nicholas Xenocostas discussing evolving air cargo technologies, the future of the industry, and what CHAMP has in store.
Mr. Xenocostas addresses the challenges of economic volatility in the industry:

We do not necessarily see that a Google or Amazon approach will be necessary, CHAMP offers preparation improvements for the future if the industry can sustain it."
