Hospitio Expands Global Consulting Offerings with New Cargo and Logistics Practice
Updated: Mar 4, 2021
DALLAS - Feb. 22, 2021 -- Dallas-based Hospitio Consulting & Services is expanding its aviation and transportation business to the cargo and logistics arenas, with a new Cargo and Logistics practice under the leadership of industry veteran Danita Waterfall-Brizzi.
Cargo and logistics has become a fast-growing component of commerce in the past 25 years, particularly with the meteoric growth of e-commerce. COVID-19 hastened the need to find new, creative and cost - efficient solutions to bring goods from factory to the end-user. Whether it is enhancing your existing freight business or developing capacities for new revenue streams, Hospitio's Cargo and Logistics team will help airlines emerge successfully through pandemic recovery and beyond.
Waterfall-Brizzi is a 25-year travel industry veteran. She started her career in Moscow as the Director for the Delta-Aeroflot joint venture. Moving to Frankfurt, she was responsible for Cargo Sales, Operations and Customer Service for Delta Air Lines in the Europe, Middle East, Africa (EMEA) and India regions for 20 years. During that time, she was instrumental in the integration of Northwest Airlines’ and Delta’s cargo operations after their merger in 2008, and was later instrumental in establishing the Cargo joint venture between Delta, AirFrance/KLM and Virgin Atlantic.
Waterfall-Brizzi has been consulting in the global Cargo and Logistics space from her base in Frankfurt, Germany, one of the leading cargo centers in the world. She will lead Hospitio’s global efforts from Frankfurt.
“We are excited to have Danita as part of the Hospitio team and to help us grow in this very important sector of the global economy,” said Brad Beakley, president and CEO of Hospitio. “We look forward to all of the new partnerships that Danita and her team will help us forge in the months ahead.”
Hospitio’s cargo and logistics practice will focus on business development strategy, cargo network and revenue management analytics, digital transformation, supply chain process improvement, vendor procurement, and performance optimization.
