GOL Linhas Ae´reas Inteligentes S.A., the largest low cost carrier in Latin America, has celebrated 10 years of operations with over 400,000 tonnes of cargo transported over that time. Ten years ago, its logistics unit, Gollog, issued its first AWB (air waybill), marking the beginning of a highly successful business for the carrier.

Gollog’s logistics platform is integrated with the largest route network in Latin America, with over 900 daily flights, operated by 112 aircraft, in addition to a fleet of 360 vehicles. Since it began operations in January 2001, Gollog has carried more than 400,000 tonnes of cargo and issued more than 5.5 million AWBs. Its contribution to GOL’s revenue has increased substantially, with 3Q10 cargo revenue moving up 128 per cent year-on-year. Two years ago, Gollog also entered the express delivery market. With a comprehensive service portfolio, the segment already accounts for around 20 per cent of the cargo division’s revenue.
