Cargo 2000, the air cargo industry quality standard that currently sees 80 major airlines, forwarders and third parties in airfreight participating has launched a new classification system for membership, saying it will increase the quality of air cargo processes internally and externally.

Mattijs ten Brink, chairman of Cargo 2000, said: “The ultimate goal is to move air cargo organisations towards the full integration of Cargo 2000 and to increase the value of our programme both internally and externally. Our message is clear: partial implementation of any operational plan only delivers partial
results. To realise all of the benefits of Cargo 2000, full integration is a necessity.” Membership Classification confers additional value and quality to its members and the higher the membership level, the greater the rewards, including the use of solid assessment tools, recognition for best-in-class performance, and enhanced
profile with shippers that will use Cargo 2000 as part of their supplier selection process.

The new Cargo 2000 classification consists of four levels based on a points system that objectively measures a company’s integration of Cargo 2000 into its daily business processes: Member (0
to 30 points); Silver (31 to 50 points); Gold (51 to 80) and Platinum (81 or more points).
