Over ons pic

Our mission is to link the various parties active in the air cargo sector in the Netherlands in order to strengthen the sector’s market position.

Our vision is to optimize development of value-added, innovative activities throughout the air cargo chain primarily focusing on the air cargo industry at Schiphol and its regional partners.

Bringing together all the parties in the air cargo sector allows steps to be taken in a unique way.  A unique situation is created not only by ACN’s own initiatives but especially by support for initiatives from the market.
