The KLM Cargo Terminal: A Conceptual Design of the Internal Organization and its Size

The KLM Cargo Terminal: A Conceptual Design of the Internal Organization and its Size | Express & Logistics | Scoop.it
wjzondag's insight:

To maintain the competitive advantage after bad years in 2012 and 2013 Air France – KLM – Martinair Cargo (KLM Cargo) got the vision to, amongst others measures, shift their focus towards pharmaceutical freight, also referred to as ‘pharma’. Pharma is an interesting commodity because of the stability of the growth of the pharmaceutical industry, the freight is high-yield and it is possible to transport the freight in the hull, the belly, of the passenger aircraft. The latter fits the developments in the fleet where a gradually push-off is planned for the full-freighter aircraft.

Another development affecting KLM Cargo freight operations at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AAS) is the airport’s plan to expand its passenger terminal. KLM Cargo needs to make way for this expansion and need to relocate their freight terminal. For the development of the new terminal ‘Innovation’, ‘Lean’ and ‘Safety’ are spear points. Considering the attention the company is giving to pharma, it is their wish to handle pharmaceutical freight in a dedicated terminal.

The objective of this research is to make recommendations to KLM Cargo about the design of a new terminal for dedicated handling of pharmaceutical freight by developing and sizing a conceptual design for the internal organization of the terminal fitted to KLM Cargo’s product structure, the pharmaceutical industry, and future developments in demand and regulation.

Air Freight Transport: A strategic modelling approach on a global scale :: TU Delft Institutional Repository

wjzondag's insight:

Air transport provides a suitable way of transport for special types of freight such as emergency freight (spare parts, documents), high-value freight (gold, currency, and artwork) and perishables (pharmaceuticals, fresh food, cut flowers) as these products have very short shelf life and benefit from fast transit times. Air transport is also responsible for most of the value added. As stated by Boeing, even though air freight accounts for fewer than 2 per cent of total tonnage transported, it represents almost 40 per cent of aggregate value of total world trade, proving that it is a link of paramount importance for the global supply chains.
 

Descriptive models can aid decision makers in their understanding of the response of global air freight flows to external factors such as the global economy and technological innovation and provide a quantitative underpinning of forecasts and of business cases for investment. Although in the air freight transport business, use is often made of long term forecasts, there is little shared knowledge about which methods should be preferred, and hardly any literature at the scientific level.

Transport models were originally developed for passengers and ensuingly applied in freight. Although it is accepted that the four-step transport modelling methodology is a fitting framework for freight, many fundamental differences exist between them such as diversity in decision makers, commodities transported, mode properties, the networks etc. In the particular case of air freight transport, these elementary dissimilarities call for an adaptation of the existing methods, towards a modelling framework better suited for the airborne movement of goods. There lacks a strategic model for air freight flows at the global scale that overcomes the insufficiencies of passenger oriented models. This research contributes to the literature by formulating a model for global air freight demand and network flows.

The results of the model are presented in the form of international air freight flows, followed by results on a regional level, sensitivity analysis and validation. The model is found to produce realistic results within the rational range set by observed air freight volumes.
