Swissport and Qatar Airways Cargo renewed their agreement covering airport ground services and cargo handling at Schiphol airport in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The contract includes ramp handling and air cargo warehousing as well as handling of general cargo, pharmaceuticals, dangerous goods and temperature-sensitive goods. The contract is valid until the end of 2025. The renewed agreement provides Swissport with a substantial baseload of cargo tons per year at Amsterdam airport, where – thanks to direct ramp access – it offers fast and secure transfers of cargo shipments to and from aircraft through the Swissport warehouse.

 

Via its Manchester and Birmingham warehouses, Swissport can also link Qatar Airways Cargo to regional airports across the UK utilizing its road feeder services to Aberdeen, Belfast, Bristol, East Midlands, Glasgow and Newcastle, which are not served directly. These new 5-year contracts, commencing 1 September 2020, further strengthen the longstanding relationship between Swissport and Qatar Airways Cargo.

 

“We are honoured to again be entrusted by Qatar Airways Cargo, one of the leading air cargo carriers,” said Rudolf Steiner, Swissport’s senior vice president cargo for EMEA. “Through consistent performance and reliable quality delivered across all airports, we continue to proof the value of our services to our global customers.”

 

Guillaume Halleux, chief officer cargo at Qatar Airways said: “Our long-term partnership with Swissport in Amsterdam, Manchester and Birmingham will allow us to offer our customers fast, seamless and efficient handling for all types of cargo. With a strong focus on sustainability and compliance, we see Swissport as the perfect fit for cargo handling at these destinations.”
