Quality SWISS quality at heart, process driven by nature

Quality is at the heart of everything we do - from customer service to operations, from sales to product management, from marketing to IT. Quality is a result of putting in place a number of individual initiatives and processes, each of which requires ownership, identification, coordination, implementation and control. At Swiss WorldCargo, we track and measure every step of the process so that we can improve every day. We also measure the performance of our partners and suppliers on a regular basis.


Reliable, year after year

Customers perceive our focus on quality as reliability. The results of our biennial customer satisfaction survey, year after year, have been showing a very high level of overall satisfaction and loyalty towards Swiss WorldCargo in comparison to our competitors.

What is Cargo iQ

Cargo iQ, earlier known as 'Cargo 2000', is an IATA initiative that brings together more than 80 major airlines, forwarders and third parties in air freight with the mission of creating and implementing quality standards for the worldwide air cargo industry.
Cargo iQ has so far been the deepest and most far-reaching improvement initiative in air cargo. In 2016, the group implemented a new audit and certification scheme, focused on increasing international recognition for the Cargo iQ Quality Management System Certification as well as a new data management initiative called Smart Data.


Our Commitment

Swiss WorldCargo has been an active member of the Cargo iQ initiative since its inception. All stations in our network are certified in accordance with Cargo iQ standards and we are continuously ranked amongst the top airlines in Cargo iQ results.
