Turkish joins Cargo 2000

TURKISH Airlines has become the latest company to join Cargo 2000’s quality management programme.

It becomes the 28th airline to join Cargo 2000’s programme to improve the quality of air cargo, reduce the time and cost of managing irregularities and further enhance the reputation of air cargo service providers through measurable performance to a recognised industry standard.

Atilla Lise, senior vice-president cargo at Turkish Airlines, said: “We have received requests from major freight-forwarding customers for Turkish Airlines to join Cargo 2000 and we believe this is the right time to do so. Deploying its quality management system will help us analyse and put in place newly established transportation processes that will improve the efficiency of our air-cargo services, reduce operational cost and serve towards us achieving ultimate customer satisfaction.”

Lothar Moehle, regional director, EMEA for Cargo 2000, said: “Airlines represent the largest and fastest growing area of Cargo 2000’s membership and increasingly they are being encouraged to join by their top freight-forwarding customers. Our objective all along has been to offer shippers the highest quality of service from using a Cargo 2000 compliant air cargo supply chain so it is extremely pleasing that shippers’ options are continually increasing as our membership expands.”
