  • ACC Air Cargo Industry Outlook and Implications for Airport Design On-Demand Webinar

    Product not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)

    This 90-minute ACC on-demand webinar provides an explanation for how the air cargo industry will extend into the industry’s future, types of airports that may benefit from cargo growth, and considerations for future planning and design of airport infrastructure.

    This ACC on-demand webinar will: (1) review the collective cargo experience of U.S. airports since the most common peak year (calendar year 2000) and discuss causes of the massive decreases that occurred in many markets; (2) discuss the composition of U.S. cargo airports, in terms of FedEx and UPS hubs, international gateways and feeder markets; (3) discuss the recent and ongoing impacts of e-Commerce generally and specifically with regards to the development of the Amazon network; (4) explore the impacts of the preceding on the inventories of airports’ cargo facilities and the need for new and/or improved airport capacity to meet foreseeable future challenges; and (5) discuss the planning metrics and available tools to guide the planning of airports’ cargo capacity. Many U.S. airports are looking to diversify and expand their economic development but must determine whether air cargo could be part of that portfolio and then must ensure they have the necessary facilities. This webinar will provide an explanation for how the air cargo industry reached this point and will extend into the industry’s future, types of airports that may benefit from cargo growth, and considerations for future planning and design of airport infrastructure.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    At the end of this ACC on-demand webinar, participants will be able to:
    • Explain the air cargo trends that caused extended losses and recent growth.
    • Describe the roles of individual airports and types of airports within the larger industry.
    • Evaluate air cargo growth opportunities based on key factors/resources that are predictors of airports’ cargo success.
    • Determine airports’ cargo facilities capacity.
    • Avoid common pitfalls associated with unrealistic expectations of cargo growth.

    Michael Webber

    Associate Vice President, Landrum & Brown, Inc.

    Michael Webber is Associate Vice President of Landrum & Brown, Inc. and has spent 25 years in airport and air cargo marketing, as well as three years in international trade development. He has led marketing departments of two airport operators and consulted for numerous airport operators and federal civil aviation authorities, as well as the occasional airline, forwarder and handler. 

    Mr. Webber has provided cargo consulting to several of the world’s largest airports, including those in Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami and New York (JFK). His international work has included assignments in Thailand and the People’s Republic of China in Asia, Kenya and Cape Verde in Africa, Jordan and Abu Dhabi in the Middle East, as well as Brazil, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Mexico, Nicaragua and Panama in Latin America.

    While primarily serving airport operators and civil aviation authorities, these efforts have produced a network of air carrier, freight forwarder and allied industry contacts. Mr. Webber’s air cargo consulting work has included numerous market development analyses, forecasts and strategic plans, often with multimodal (trucking, rail and ocean) elements.

    He worked with the Transportation Research Board on the “Guidelines for Air Cargo Facility Planning and Development,” completing case studies of six U.S. airports, interviewing air cargo carriers, freight forwarders, handlers and third-party facilities developers. Mr. Webber also authored chapters pursuant to air cargo forecasting, as well as air cargo facilities planning metrics to fit demand. This manual, completed in 2015, has become a standard resource for airport planners and facilities developers. 

    Mr. Webber earned a Masters of Business Administration from Tulane University and a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Kansas.

    Kevin Hoffmann

    Senior Managing Consultant, Landrum & Brown, Inc.

    Kevin Hoffmann joined Landrum & Brown, Inc., in 2018 as a Senior Managing Consultant. He has over 21 years of airport properties experience and has negotiated hundreds of space lease agreements with airports and third-party developers. Mr. Hoffmann has negotiated more than 75 airport use and lease agreements at airports across the country. He was responsible for helping UPS open its new airline operations and facilities in Anchorage, Billings, Fort Wayne, Pensacola, Tampa, Fargo and Lafayette.

    Mr. Hoffmann served as co-chair with Alaska Airlines for the Airline/Airport Affairs Committee. He helped to negotiate two airline use and lease agreements with the State of Alaska. The agreements began a transition from an airport wide airfield residual agreement to a terminal and airfield residual. The transition helped the cargo airlines save millions of dollars annually by keeping terminal costs out of the airfield. 
    Mr. Hoffmann searched for and found a location for the first Flight Training Center for UPS outside of Louisville, Kentucky. The 20-year agreement enabled UPS to start MD-11 and B-747 simulator training in the facility, and opening the facility saved UPS over $40 million dollars in pilot travel expenses.

    He also initiated the UPS move from the St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport to Tampa International Airport. He was responsible for negotiating lease agreements and securing incentives for new service and worked with airport staff to look for a more permanent building location for the future. The relocation allowed UPS to upsize aircraft and increase the total number flights daily and reduced significant trailer movement costs.

    Mr. Hoffmann worked with senior airport staff to relocate Fort Wayne International Airport’s UPS operations from a small 6,000 square foot facility to a 30,000 square foot facility, which had been part of the Kitty Hawk operation. The move allowed UPS to provide more service territory from the newly expanded operation.

    Mr. Hoffmann earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Aviation Management from Auburn University.

  • ACC Lunch & Learn On-Demand Webinar - Airport Interiors are Experiencing Massive Change: What You Need to Know

    Product not yet rated Contains 2 Component(s)

    This free 90-minute ACC Lunch & Learn on-demand webinar - generously sponsored by AGATI Furniture - reviews the massive design changes taking place within airport interiors around the world.

    This complimentary ACC Lunch & Learn on-demand webinar hosted by AGATI Furniture reviews the massive design changes taking place within airport interiors around the world. In the last 15 years, there has been a fundamental shift in airport design, as well as airport interiors. What was once a sea of beam seating is now part lounge, part café, part office, and a wealth of amenities. New types of spaces - as well as new types of furniture and designs - are finding their way into airports. This volume of massive change is more challenging for airports, as they are a unique environment. What are the design and physical elements that truly lead to a more enjoyable travel and airport experience for passengers? What furniture styles and pieces will endure and perform well in the intense, high volume of airport terminals? Matt Dubbe, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP from Mead & Hunt, Inc. and Joe S. Agati of AGATI Furniture will tackle these questions and more during this informative complimentary Lunch & Learn on-demand webinar.

    Public Spaces Need Furniture That Solves Problems

    Our design methodology is driven by how people use — and abuse — furniture that isn’t theirs. 

    The AGATI Difference

    We bring our passion for designing sharp-looking, long-lasting furniture for public spaces. You bring the knowledge and vision of how people spend time in yours. Together, we’ll design a solution that invites people to sit, relax, gather, focus or study for years to come.

    Airport Furniture

    Passengers are tired, hungry and need to charge their phones. We’ve all been there: Our flight is delayed, the line at the café is long, and our phones are at 4% battery. All we want is a place to recharge, literally and figuratively.

    image

    Ideally, that seat would be comfortable, provide a little personal space and have an outlet within reach. AGATI Furniture provides all of this and more in our airport furniture offerings. And make no mistake: Our seating at Gate B3 is just as comfortable as the seats in the fancy lounge, and it will withstand any “abuse” that comes with the territory. We engineer our airport lounge seats specifically to stand up to 24/7 use, holiday rush and all.

    We also recognize that power is a requirement in airport furniture. We design our airport furniture with this in mind, providing power options in nearly all of the pieces recommended for airport spaces. Charging tables, lounge seats with power options, even café tables with power outlets are available to help air travelers recharge.
