2000’s quality management system
which now covers over 70 per cent of
the global air cargo market with 80
members representing the airline, freight
forwarding, ground handling, road
transport, IT and airport sectors. The
members work to improve the quality of
air cargo by implementing Cargo 2000’s
Master Operating Plan which defines an
industry standard process for moving
goods from the door of the shipper to
the door of the consignee.
In 2011, Damco had a net turnover of
over US$2.8 billion, managed 2.5 million
TEU of ocean freight and supply chain
management volumes and airfreighted
more than 110,000 tonnes. “Damco’s
aspiration is to become a top 15 airfreight
forwarder by 2015. Strengthening our
operational platform plays an integral
role in reaching this ambition. To us,
Cargo 2000 is the obvious step towards
optimising our operational processes
and a key element in securing the
measurement of quality. The ability to
monitor our performance as part of the
end-to-end shipment cycle will drive an
essential improvement of our service
delivery,” said Damco global head of air
freight, Remo Eigenmann.
