Hactl first for IATA safety audit

HONG Kong Air Cargo Terminals Limited (Hactl) has become the world’s first air cargo terminal operator to obtained the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) Safety Audit for Ground Operations (ISAGO) registration.

Kenneth Bell, Hactl’s director of service delivery, said: “We are very pleased to be the world’s first cargo terminal operator to be registered on the ISAGO registry, helping to set worldwide industry benchmarks. Hactl’s commitment and efforts in pursuing rigorous quality and safety standards over the years are again being recognised.”

“The enormous challenges brought by the economic downturn will not affect our dedication to offer a secure working environment that benefits our airline customers, the air cargo community and, of course, our staff,” said Bell.

Mike O’Brien, director of programme implementation and auditing at IATA, said: “We are very pleased that Hactl has taken a pioneering role in embracing ISAGO, which helps in promoting and ensuring high levels of security and safety throughout the whole air cargo handling process. We believe that ISAGO is the solution for ground handlers to reduce accidents and injuries, contributing to cost saving and further efficiency among the industry players.
