The KLM Innovation Awards 2022 were presented on November 22th. After a long Covid break, it was time to present the most innovative ideas from aviation again. 41 teams entered with their projects of the last 3 years. Cargometer’s “Cargo Volume Scanning” was voted among the three finalists in the “Best Operational Innovation” category. Congratulations to Irwin Budding, Robin van der Lubbe, Mike Macintosh and the outstanding KLM Cargo team. It was a pleasure working with you.
“Proud to be a finalist at the KLM Innovation Award 2022! The innovative way of Volume Scanning 2.0 was selected as finalist by all our KLM colleagues in the category “Best Operational Innovation”.”Robin van der Lubbe, KLM Cargo
“Together with our partner Cargometer and a great AFKL team we managed the setbacks and moved forward. As a reward our colleagues nominated the project for the KLM innovation awards. We competed with 41 top innovative projects and made it to the final. It has been a wonderful journey!”Irwin Budding, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines
“Volume scanning 2.0 is a dynamic way of scanning (no delay in cargo acceptance), scans 3d “water volume” (empty spaces are removed in calculation) and it’s integrated and optimized for our current tooling.”Robin van der Lubbe, KLM Cargo
“Volume is scanned upon acceptance and deviations are being corrected to improve the handling process of KLM Cargo.”Irwin Budding, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines
“Cargometer and Air France KLM Cargo joined forces three years ago. All the way through the corona era Cargometer’s volume scan solution was tested, used and invested in. Now it’s implemented in KLM Cargo’s warehouse freight building.”Irwin Budding, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines
“And it’s not just an innovative idea, it’s has been implemented at our cargo warehouse at hub Amsterdam and it has already been proven to be a great success.”Robin van der Lubbe, KLM Cargo
