PayCargo has teamed up with Air Cargo Netherlands (ACN) to help simplify the payment and collection of the association’s membership and delegate transactions.

The Dutch trade association has signed up to use PayCargo’s encrypted online payment platform to process payments from members and delegates at its events. PayCargo, which last year processed US$4bn in transactions for logistics firms, has tailored its platform to support ACN’s needs.

“We want to make adopting this new solution as easy as possible for ACN members to prepare for the future while underscoring the importance of digitisation across the air cargo value chain,” explained Maarten van As, Managing Director, ACN.

“ACN has done a huge amount in recent years for the progression of the air cargo industry in the Netherlands by promoting digital solutions and the benefits of adopting a versatile digital payment system,” added Adriaan Reinders, Chief Executive Officer, PayCargo Europe. “They are not just preaching about the benefits of digital solutions, they are leading by example.”

ACN is the only air freight industry association in the Netherlands, with more than 300 members, and aims to develop the Dutch air cargo industry through educational projects, digital innovation and increased transparency and connection between supply chain members.
