Perfect 40th for Hong Kong’s HACTL
01 / 06 / 2016
Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) is celebrating its 40th birthday and has launched a video to mark the event.
It is a double celebration for Hong Kong’s largest independent cargo handler, which has also passed its bi-ennial ISAGO (IATA Safety Audit for Ground Operations) external audit, "once again achieving a perfect score".
Said a spokesperson for the company: "The ISAGO standard covers every aspect of Hactl’s operations and facilities, with a team of 26 coordinators ensuring compliance throughout all departments.
"Hactl was the first cargo handler in the world to achieve ISAGO certification, when the new standard was introduced in 2008. Hactl has since achieved flawless results in each of its three most recent audits (2012, 2014, 2016), with zero findings and zero observations."
The ISAGO Program is an internationally-recognised and accepted evaluation system, designed to assess the operational management and control systems of ground service providers. ISAGO aims to improve safety standards and reduce risks related to ground operations. All audits are independently conducted by IATA-approved assessors.
Benny Siu, Hactl’s manager for quality assurance, commented: “We are delighted to have passed the ISAGO audit once again, with a clean sheet. The professionalism of the team successfully overcame the challenge of meeting the more stringent requirements laid down in the latest ISAGO GOSM.”
Here is the celebratory 40th anniversary video.
