Under the partnership, AFKLMP Cargo will use sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) on selected cargo flights from Nairobi - Kenya to Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, carrying TTC´s fresh agricultural and horticultural products.
Bénédicte Duval, Vice President Africa at Air France KLM Martinair Cargo, welcomed Total Touch Cargo CEO/owner Harry van der Plas at the AFKLMP Cargo headquarters at Schiphol to sign the formal documents. The agreement includes a fixed annual investment from Total Touch Cargo that will allow AFKLMP Cargo to further expand development and procurement of SAF. TTC´s contribution will be used to cover the cost differential between conventional aircraft fuel and SAF.
Total Touch Cargo specialises in the air transport of fresh flowers, vegetables, herbs, fruit and fish from Nairobi to Amsterdam on a daily basis. The company has been playing an instrumental role in developing the “cold chain” industry from Kenya. To guarantee faultless quality control, Total Touch Cargo has its own airside-based warehousing and cold storage facilities, in a joint venture with Kenya Airways, at the Jomo Kenyatta airport in Nairobi.
We have been transporting TTC´s fresh products since 1995. On average, Total Touch Cargo ships around 350 tonnes a week from Kenya throughout the year.
