The Dutch hub handled a record 420,168 metric tons during the first quarter of 2017 with the Asia and Europe markets experiencing the most growth.

   Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport handled a record 420,168 metric tons of cargo during the first quarter of 2017, an increase of 8 percent year-over-year, the airport said.
   In March alone, the airport handled 154,000 metric tons of cargo, a year-over-year increase of 9.5 percent, thanks to 7.2 percent growth in full freighter volumes and 13.2 percent growth in belly volumes.
   Asia is still the largest market for the Dutch hub, with Shanghai remaining as the busiest cargo destination.

   “We are very pleased that our commitment to enhancing the experience of our pharmaceutical, e-Commerce, and perishables customers, and our continued commitment to quality and transparency in the supply chain is leading to further growth, especially in the Asia and Europe markets,” said Jonas van Stekelenburg, Head of Cargo, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. “Our pharma initiatives have led to boosted pharma volumes both inbound and outbound to the USA, South America and Asia, and we will continue to work with the Schiphol Cargo Community to develop this further.”
