Forwarders join AFKLMP’s SAF programme


Air France KLM Martinair Cargo (AFKLMP) last week signed agreements with two leading Dutch freight forwarders – Best Global Logistics and Fast Forward Freight – for participation in their Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) programme.

Best Global Logistics (BGL) has joined the AFKLMP SAF programme for its 2021 marine logistics shipments (ship spares), as a crucial part of their Going Green strategy.

John Burgstra, co-CEO of the GTS group and group director of Best Global Logistics: “We are very excited to have AFKLMP Cargo at our side, as a leading partner who is active in operating and promoting the reduction of carbon emissions in the airfreight industry. We are prepared to assume responsibility for the future generation of airfreight.

“We genuinely want to empower our customers and the entire industry to make more sustainable decisions. Through innovative tailor-made solutions, ambitious programmes and reliable business practices, we strive to deliver green logistics solutions for our world. Now and in the future.’’

Renowned Dutch freight forwarder Fast Forward Freight (FFF) is committed to leading the industry in minimising the impact of its activities on the environment. This ambition is an important reason for joining and investing in AFKLMP’s SAF programme. FFF monitors its impact on the environment and sets targets for continuous improvement. Moreover, Fast Forward Freight encourages the adoption of similar principles by its suppliers.

Marc Terpstra, CEO of Fast Forward Freight: “Fast Forward Freight in its blueprint will use every opportunity to be sustainable in their day-to-day activities. In this industry every step forward makes a big difference, and it is our social responsibility.”
