DHL Global Forwarding (DGF) Pays Tribute to American for Professional Work in Air Transport Security
October 12, 2009 - American Airlines Cargo Division (AA Cargo) today announced it has been honored with the Airfreight Security Partnership Award presented by DHL Global Forwarding (DGF). The award was offered in recognition of professional work in air transport security.
The Security Partnership Program, developed by DHL Global Forwarding, aims to make the transport of goods as safe and reliable as possible in light of tough government security regulations and a rise in customer demands. The program fosters closer cooperation between provider and carrier by offering transport partners a common platform that will promote the exchange of best practice solutions.
Michael Schaecher, Executive Vice President, Head of Global Airfreight and StarBroker AG, led the DHL Global Forwarding team in presenting the award to representatives of AA Cargo at the DGF Headquarters in Bonn, Germany, on Sept. 23, 2009. It is the first time the Airfreight Security Partnership Award has been awarded.
"We are very pleased to be recognized by this global logistics leader for work in the important area of transport security," said Dave Brooks, President of AA Cargo. "Our team has worked diligently to ensure our customers' shipments are delivered efficiently and securely, and we are very appreciative of this vote of confidence by our valued partner."
The Airfreight Security Partnership Program was created in 2006 to reduce damage and loss along the transport chain and to improve cooperation in those cases when one or both occur. Exchanging information on worldwide trends in transport security can provide valuable support and lead to improved solutions.
