Ground handlers receive the cargo from forwarders, build up unit load devices and load/unload the airplane, break down unit load devices and ensure the transfer of the incoming cargo to the forwarder. All ground handlers on Schiphol Airport are member of ACN. They are represented by the sectoral council of the ground handlers. This meeting takes place every four months to discuss the latest situation. In addition, the handlers are always closely involved in optimization projects.
