Scott's vision for the IACAC in 2017-2018 is to increase forwarder membership and also bringing back airlines and ground handlers who are key parts of the air cargo supply chain. The IACAC is also looking to deliver more value to members and new, members-only deals and sections of the website will be rolled out throughout the year, further reinforcing the IACAC's leadership in the air cargo arena.
As Managing Director of BCS Placement, Brian Bartolotta leads the Logistics, Supply Chain and Freight Forwarding Recruitment and Consulting Practice for BCS.

Today I’m the General Manager for Land Air Express. I’m a husband to my wife, Lori for the past 36 years. Together we have 2 daughters, and 3 grandchildren.
I began my career in airfreight/trucking in 1979 with O’Hare Air Taxi Service loading and unloading planes. From there I acquired my CDL license and worked over the road for about a decade.
I moved into the office into Airline Logistics operations working closely with Air China, Singapore, Air France and for a time was on site at Lufthansa.
Currently I am the Vice President of Business Development for B&R Logistics and am responsible for developing and maintaining long term relationships with clients. I have spent much of my professional career in and around air cargo and the logistics sector, including with Everglory Logistics, Ever Concord, UAC, Inc., ACI and K-Line Air Service.
This business is about people, networking and interconnectivity. I believe that by networking with each other here in Chicago and with our colleagues throughout the industry and around the U.S., we can make for better opportunities for everyone throughout air cargo and make for a more positive and healthy industry.
I currently manage the Dangerous Goods Group of Basic Crating & Packaging Inc. I have been working with DG throughout my career starting with W.W. Grainger in 1995 and then moving to DGM Chicago 16 years later. The DGM franchise was then picked up by Basic Crating & Packaging Inc. We have since dropped the franchise and are operating wholly as Basic Crating & Packaging Inc. where the same quality of service is offered now.
I have been involved with the IACAC since 2017. In that time I have made many connections and a growing group of friends attending many of the events the IACAC has offered. My goal is to continue to strengthen the IACAC and have it be a positive place for people within our industry to meet new connections as well as discuss the current industry climate and challenges we all face.
