Air France KLM Martinair Cargo (AFKLMP) has signed agreements with two leading Dutch freight forwarders – Best Global Logistics and Fast Forward Freight.
The agreement will see the two firms participate in AFKLMP’s sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) programme.
Best Global Logistics (BGL) has joined the AFKLMP SAF programme for its 2021 marine logistics shipments (ship spares), as a crucial part of their Going Green strategy.
John Burgstra, co-CEO of the GTS group and group director of Best Global Logistics: “We are very excited to have AFKLMP Cargo at our side, as a leading partner who is active in operating and promoting the reduction of carbon emissions in the airfreight industry.
“We are prepared to assume responsibility for the future generation of airfreight. We genuinely want to empower our customers and the entire industry to make more sustainable decisions.
“Through innovative tailor-made solutions, ambitious programmes and reliable business practices, we strive to deliver green logistics solutions for our world. Now and in the future.’’
Marc Terpstra, CEO of Fast Forward Freight, added: “Fast Forward Freight in its blueprint will use every opportunity to be sustainable in their day-to-day activities. In this industry every step forward makes a big difference, and it is our social responsibility.”
Bernard Geersing, AFKLMP Cargo’s director Benelux, said: “We are extremely pleased with the willingness and concrete commitment of our Dutch partners Best Global Logistics and Fast Forward Freight to shape our common ambition for a more sustainable future. Together we are trendsetters in a field that will grow in our companies and in society.”
The Air France KLM Martinair Cargo SAF programme enables stakeholders in the logistics and airfreight industry to power a percentage of their flights with SAF.
Customers determine their own level of engagement and AFKLMP ensures that their entire investment is used for sourcing SAF.
By participating in the programme, customers not only reduce their carbon footprint, but confirm their commitment to leading the industry towards a more sustainable future.
