Cargolux presented its 2014 DGR Awareness Award to ground handling company Air Cargo Services Center – ACS in appreciation of the keen efforts of ACS DGR team in the area of dangerous goods compliance, handling and reporting during a ceremony in Hanoi.
The Cargolux DGR Awareness Award is an annual recognition and is presented following a joint decision by the Aviation Safety and Ground Services departments on the basis of data from ground safety reports, air safety reports and any other relevant reports and data available.
Presenting the award, Mattias Pak, Cargolux vice president head of aviation safety stated: “Dangerous goods are an essential and important part of the air cargo business but we all know that these goods pose a certain risk when transported. This risk can be mitigated to acceptable low levels if all processes and procedures for dangerous goods are followed. Judging by the reports we have received, we are pleased to commend ACS for their highly professional and conscientious approach when handling and managing the dangerous goods that are flown on our airplanes from and through Hanoi. It contributes to a sustainable and safety movement of these items which are an essential part of our business.”
Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan, deputy director NIA – Noibai International Airport branch of Aiports Corporation of Vietnam, said: “It is a great honour for ACS to be recognised by Cargolux as having achieved high standards in handling dangerous goods to the full satisfaction of our valued customer, but, above all, in full respect of the dangerous goods regulations without compromising safety. This achievement could only be obtained thanks to the efforts of ACS staff in charge of the daily DG handling. Furthermore, it motivates and pushes ACS to keep up its standards in order to ensure that safety is never compromised.”
