Luxembourg’s Luxair Cargo is IATA’s third pilot location for its new SFOC audit
Aug 28, 2018: Luxair Cargo (LuxairGroup) in Luxembourg has been the third pilot location for IATA’s Smart Facility Operational Capacity (SFOC) Audit.
The SFOC Pilot Audit has been conducted under the observation of Cargolux Airlines, states Marc Volkl, Project Manager, Smart Facility at International Air Transport Association (IATA) on its linkedin profile.
“We want to thank Luxair’s VP Business Development Jean-Marc Reynaerts as well as Cargolux's Jussi Mattila and Franco Nanna, for their participation and valuable feedback that will help us to further enhance the SFOC Auditing Standards going forward,” added Volkl.
Part of the StB Cargo project portfolio, the Smart Facility programme aims at creating transparency in cargo handling services and to enhance basic cargo operations capacities to a consistently higher baseline level across the industry.
Furthermore, the Smart Facility programme aims to reduce the audit complexity between Carriers and Cargo Terminal Operators (CTO) by providing an operational capacity audit and accreditation scheme (SFOC) that validates a CTO’s capacities to handle cargo within the cargo facility.
The global airlines body IATA selected Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminal Limited (Hactl) as the first pilot location for its new handling audit system.
