Amsterdam Airport Schiphol reported 3.2 per cent growth in cargo traffic in 2013, with the total of 1,531,089 tonnes coming close to the airport’s all-time record set in 2007.

The final quarter was, as usual, the best of the year, with a total of 410,698 tonnes (up eight per cent on 2012). It also saw a return of the traditional pre-Christmas peak in traffic.

2013 also witnessed a strengthening in the airport’s Asia business, up 7.1 per cent to 601,442 tonnes, which represented almost 40 per cent share of all cargo traffic. This allowed Asia to retain its traditional top ranking, followed by North America (16.6 per cent share), the Middle East (12.9 per cent), Latin America (11.2 per cent, overtaking Africa for fourth place), Africa (11 per cent) and Europe (nine per cent).

Exports and imports remained in close balance in 2013, with 50.86 per cent and 49.14 per cent shares of the total respectively.

Freighter movements increased 0.5 per cent to 15,623 for the year, with most growth occurring in the final quarter (up 6.1 per cent on 2012) as carriers introduced extra capacity.
