Amsterdam air cargo up 1.6pc in first 6 months

  01.08.2016    

Cargo volumes at Amsterdam's Schiphol airport increased 1.6 per cent year on year in the first half to 796,801 tonnes with June figures rising 2.5 per cent to 135,528 tonnes.
April at Europe's third busiest cargo hub was particularly strong, up 6.8 per cent to 137,666 tonnes year on year, reports the American Journal of Transportation.
Cargo throughput for January to June 2016 was 796,801 tonnes compared to 784,567 tonnes in the same period in 2015, up 1.6 per cent year on year.
There were 8,801 freighter movements from January to June 2016, compared to 8,218 in the same period in 2015, up 7.1 per cent.
Said Schiphol cargo chief Jonas van Stekelenburg: "We attracted some new carriers such as Jet Airways, and experienced growth of some existing carriers such as DHL."
European freight showed the strongest growth in the first two quarters of 2016, up 41.7 per cent to 90,991 tonnes compared to 64,197 in the same period in 2015.
New carrier Silk Way ships to Asia via Baku, and AirBridgeCargo, which has recently extended services from Schiphol, ships via Moscow.
Asia remains Schiphol's biggest market, picking up in June to show only a 5.8 per cent dip over the six-month period, with 276,312 tonnes from January to June 2016 compared to 293,293 tonnes in the same period in 2015.
Africa showed a 2.3 per cent growth for the first six months of 2016, at 90,870 tonnes compared to 88,859 tonnes in the same period in 2015.
North America contributed 152,149 tonnes from January to June 2016, compared to 150,494 tonnes in the same period in 2015, up 1.1 per cent.
"Our strong cargo community continues initiatives such as Pharma Gateway Amsterdam, and our Milk Run scheme, because we are focused on the best service possible," said Mr van Stekelenburg.
