<p>Cargo carriers at Amsterdam Schiphol – Europe’s third-busiest freight airport – are trialling a new logistics system to cut CO2 emissions.<p>The ‘Milk Run’ concept uses a single delivery from a handling agent to multiple freight forwarding facilities instead of individual collections by each forwarder. So far the trial has reduced by a third the number of vehicle movements to handle import traffic, and the hope is to extend the concept to exports in the future.<p>Early participants include DHL, Panalpina, Nippon Express, Menzies, Bos Logistics and Cargonaut.</p>
