The Milkrun originates from the constant need for optimisation of the air cargo supply chain. There is a lot of inefficienty in “On Airport Transport”. Most forwarders arrange individual transport at Schiphol, which leads to too many trucks, with an average load factor of less than 25%.
By combining freight of multiple forwarders and delivering these in a “Milkrun”, less individual transport is needed. This results in a reduction of truck movements at the ground handler, a faster and more reliable way of freight delivery and less CO2 emissions. In all, a more environmentally friendly transport system.
