Geodis has awarded Menzies Aviation a cargo handling contract for its volumes at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol.

The five-year contract includes cargo handling for the import and export of goods on the forwarder’s Amsterdam flights, operating five times a week. A team of over 20 Menzies Aviation professionals will provide these services to the carrier. 

Menzies already provides ramp transport services for intact ULDs to GEODIS at the airport.

Miguel Gomez Sjunnesson, executive vice president Europe, Menzies Aviation, said: “We are delighted to provide cargo handling services to Geodis at Amsterdam, which is a strategic cargo hub for the carrier.

“This contract win signifies the high standard and secure service our team has already delivered to Geodis on the ramp. We’re looking forward to building a successful partnership with Geodis over the years to come.”

Last year, Geodis expanded its airfreight operation to combat capacity shortages by leasing an aircraft for the first time.

More recently, it has added flights in Asia Pacific to its network through a deal with AirAsia.

Last week, Geodis awarded a ground handling deal to WFS for its Paris business.
