Air France KLM Martinair (AFKLMP) Cargo developed a collaborative platform, where customers can jointly participate in charter solutions to destinations the cargo operator currently do not serve. Once AFKLMP Cargo has sufficient cargo to such a destination, it will operate the charter through the shared charter solution KICKCHARTER.

This solution is a new step in AFKLMP Cargo’ digital transformation. Global cargo capacity has changed substantially in recent months. Although capacity is growing, it is still scarce and not all destinations are served in our scheduled network. Gaps in the network are filled by operating charter services, but not all shipments justify a full-freighter solution. The team has developed this solution in a relatively short space of time, in response to actual customer needs in these unprecedented times.

GertJan Roelands, senior vice president of Air France KLM Martinair Cargo: “KICKCHARTER reflects our ambition to keep extending our service range based on customer needs, offering next-level technology in combination with the expertise and insight of our teams, who help us make the difference worldwide.”
