Hactl Wins Best Station Award
Hong Kong’s largest independent cargo handler, Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals Ltd (Hactl) recently won the Best Station award at the inaugural ever Pride of Ground Handling Awards held at a glittering ceremony held during the GHI 20th Annual Conference in Gothenburg.
This new accolade follows on from their recent Technovation Award for their Smart Cargo Locating.
The Pride of Ground Handling Awards were created to celebrate excellence in ground services, and recognize those individuals who go above and beyond their duty to further the global aviation business.
Chief Executive of Hactl, Wilson Kwong who proudly received the award had this to say, “We are delighted to have received the Best Station award in these, the first-ever Pride of Ground Handling Awards. Ground handling – particularly on the cargo side of the business – has traditionally received very little public recognition of the vital role it plays in the aviation industry. We applaud the organizers’ efforts to correct this situation, and to counteract the misconception that we are an industry that competes only on price, not quality.”
He continues: “We also congratulate Felix for being highly commended in the Rising Star category. He thoroughly deserves this recognition, but he is also representative of many others in our organisation who have displayed commitment and professionalism from an early age.
“Hactl has always promoted the handling industry as a rewarding career choice for young people. Felix’s achievement at these awards helps to demonstrate the truth in our claims.”
