Cargologic AG

In the face of massively rising cost pressures, Cargologic AG was confronted with the challenge of transforming its organisational structure into a professional services structure. The objective was to allow significant increases in productivity, without compromising the established high standards of quality and safety.

Client Profile

For over 50 years, Cargologic has specialised in the handling of airfreight on behalf of airlines and forwarders. With locations in Zurich, Basel, Bern and Lugano, Cargologic is the market leader in Switzerland. The expansion to Europe’s biggest freight hub of Frankfurt in 2005 was Cargologic's first move outside Switzerland. A subsidiary operating under the name of SKYLINK handles airfreight in Amsterdam and Brussels.
