The air services provider, dnata, has joined Cargo iQ as a full member. The Dubai-headquartered ground handler’s stations in the UK and the Netherlands were previously members on an individual basis.
Currently, dnata’s global network spans 35 countries and 88 airport ground handling and cargo stations.
Guillaume Crozier, divisional vice president of operations and product development, dnata, commented: “The dnata network has grown up fast over last few years.
“As we extend our network, we strive to maintain a high level of performance in all aspects, making sure all our stations match with global quality and performance standards.
“The Cargo iQ framework is well established within the air cargo industry and it makes sense for dnata and our customers to maintain actively our level of compliance as well as participate in the discussion to ensure the right approach.
“Our industry needs to evolve and keep innovating to ensure value for money at all levels of the supply chain. Cargo iQ fosters a culture of continuous improvement.”
Cargo iQ’s membership is made up of stakeholders from across the air cargo supply chain and every member’s cargo flows are monitored across the supply chain.
“We want to support our industry standards enhancement aiming for sustainable development,” said Mr Crozier.
“Measuring the same things in the same manner will help us to have more data and performance-driven relationships with stakeholders’ versus perception based.”
