Air Cargo Europe (this year, the 9th -12th May) is always is a great opportunity to get (back) in touch with our partners, both old and new. This year we shared our Delft blue tile-themed booth with partners Air Cargo Netherlands, Cargonaut, Inter Aviation Services, Kales, Fast Forward Freight, and Pharma Gateway Amsterdam.
Highlights for our Cargo Community booth definitely included the Dutch Drinks event, where more than 150 people showed up to enjoy some ice cold Heineken while discussing the latest news with industry partners.
Moreover, in front of several journalists, Jonas van Stekelenburg, Head of Cargo at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, and Nanne Onland, CEO Cargonaut, presented the new Compliance Checker, a tool that speeds cargo through our airport. The system, developed by Cargonaut and tested by KLM Cargo, uses smart technology, checking air waybill data and sending automatic alerts when information is not correct. This prevents delays caused by sending non-compliant cargo to Customs.
We also received a visit from Dutch Minister of Economic Affairs Henk Kamp. He caught up with the Schiphol Cargo Community on the latest insights regarding industry initiatives and innovations in the airfreight supply chain.
The Schiphol Cargo team looks back at a successful event, where we enjoyed catching up with colleagues, and meeting new partners. We want to thank our stand partners for their efforts, as well as Chris and Bob, the magic duo that once again, were responsible for the freshly baked stroopwafels and excellent coffee!
