As a consequence of Schiphol building the new pier, one of KLM Cargo’s three cargo warehouses will be partially demolished. This means that KLM Cargo will have to be smart about how it uses the limited amount of space available. Lödige will provide the answer by integrating KLM Cargo’s existing processes for handing mail and express shipments into an automated solution in an innovative manner. The challenge here will be to house this in an area half the size of the existing space. In order to achieve this, Lödige Industries and Vanderlande Industries formed an exclusive cooperative relationship so that the KLM Cargo team could join forces with them in an open and constructive manner.

In order to create space for the construction of a sorting system in cargo building 1, express handling operations will as of 12 June be housed elsewhere for the time being. Temporary premises have been constructed for this purpose in the front area of KLM Cargo in order to safeguard customer service.
