Over 15,000 readers and e-news subscribers of Asia Cargo News were invited to vote for the winners, and Schiphol took the European airport prize for the second year in a row.

“We are honored that the Schiphol cargo community’s commitment to quality and innovation has been recognized in this way,” said Jonas van Stekelenburg, Head of Cargo, Schiphol.

“China is the most important cargo market for us, and as a major gateway for Europe, we are very proud to have such a strong endorsement from the Asian logistics industry.”
