Kozy earned an MBA from Columbia Business School and a Bachelor of Science in systems engineering from the U.S. Naval Academy prior to joining Airspace, a tech-enabled, time-critical logistics company headquartered in Carlsbad, California, with offices throughout Europe, including a European headquarters in Amsterdam.
“The air cargo industry is evolving at an increasingly rapid pace, and the most successful airlines and freight forwarders will be the ones that evolve with it,” Kozy told Air Cargo Next. “This customer-driven evolution brought digitization to the forefront, and we’re seeing what were previously nice-to-haves become meaningful differentiators.
“As a tech-centric forwarder, Airspace is thrilled to see the resources many airlines have been pouring into categories like digital bookings,” he added. “We invested in connecting our platform directly with those airlines, which has led to an even more seamless shipping experience for our customers.”
Air Cargo Tech Summit 2023 will provide two days of discussions, panel conversations and networking events with experts in the airfreight industry. Topics to be addressed include digital booking, innovations in ground handling and warehousing, digital records, drones and more.
