Speeding up the acceptance and clearance of air cargo shipments
Swissport International and Swiss WorldCargo will continue their strategic handling partnership until 2020. The newly signed agreement extends the successful long-term cooperation between Swissport and the air cargo division of Swiss International Air Lines for another five years.
Swiss WorldCargo is the air freight division of Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS). Headquartered at Zurich Airport, Swiss WorldCargo offers a comprehensive range of logistics solutions for transporting high-value and care-intensive consignments to some 130 destinations in over 80 countries. Its extensive network of air cargo services is supplemented by daily truck connections between key business centres.
Swissport Cargo Services offers cargo handling at more than 109 airports worldwide, and handles in excess of 4.1 million tonnes annually. The cooperation with Swiss WorldCargo includes 35 stations across the globe and the annual handling of some 130,000 tonnes of cargo and mail.
According to the renewed agreement, both partners will further focus on innovative handling solutions to speed up the acceptance and clearance of air cargo shipments.
For Swiss International Air Lines, global leadership in quality and reliability are at the heart of its strategy and customer promise. As it has outsourced all ground handling activities, one of its most important decisions is the selection of partners.
