Air France-KLM Cargo has received the Cargo Award in the latest Schiphol Aviation Awards, sponsored by Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

The airline has been recognised for its ground-breaking initiatives on behalf of Schiphol SmartGate Cargo, its integrated approach to goods inspection and its pioneering role in the implementation of e-freight.

The awards were presented today, March 25th, by Ad Rutten, Executive Vice President and COO of Schiphol Group. In keeping with the airport’s drive for sustainability, the event was held in De Arendshoeve,  Aalsmeer – the most sustainable green location in the Netherlands; it was attended by 140 guests from the aviation industry.

Each year, Schiphol presents its aviation awards to clients and business partners who have distinguished themselves among all companies at the airport, based on their innovative business management or positive performance.

Commenting on this year’s Cargo Award winner, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol’s Senior VP Cargo, Enno Osinga, says: “Air France-KLM Cargo has been a strong supporter in all our technological initiatives to make Schiphol the cargo airport of preference in Europe.

“The airline’s dedication both to E-freight and the Smartgate project has been constant and highly-effective, and we are glad to have been able to recognise its invaluable support in this very public way.”
