OREANDA-NEWS. KLM Cargo has set up a project to significantly speed up and enhance the efficiency of European supply chains bringing customer cargo to Schiphol for subsequent international shipment. This project supports the objectives of the “Schiphol 2020 Mainport Programme” to make Schiphol the smartest airport in the world. A pilot project directed at making the first changes to the supply chain from Frankfurt kicked off today.

In periods of several weeks at a time, systematic improvements will be introduced in a bid to create the ideal design by April 2017. This design will then be applied at other European outstations.

Within the scope of the pilot project, KLM Cargo is participating in a consortium representing all the parties involved in the supply chain. KLM Cargo’s partners include Schiphol Cargo, Jan de Rijk Logistics, Cargonaut, Swissport, Kuehne+Nagel and the Customs Services and Tax Authorities.
