Prof Dr. Albert Veenstra: Innovation in the Air Cargo sector

The air cargo world stands alone and comprises a relatively small group of companies. Knowledge institutes find gaining access difficult. A couple of years ago ‘Topsector Logistiek’ wanted to  bring about a change. Eventually this led to the Smart Connected Cargo Airport Schiphol (SCCAS) project. Although the project has not yet been finalised its most important results are available.

Topsector Logistiek wanted to get started with innovation in air cargo and KLM, Schiphol and Cargonaut were all prepared to engage in a dialogue on this with the University of Amsterdam and the Delft University of Technology. This resulted in the Smart Connected Cargo Airport Schiphol project (SCCAS) running from March 2017 to August 2019. The project ran more or less parallel  with the Schiphol Cargo Mainport Program (SCMP) that aimed to present Schiphol as a quality airport for cargo by implementing a number of targeted innovations. The SCCAS project provided substantive depth to a number of issues as well as preparing for innovations that will be taking off in coming years.
