The Humanitarian cargo
ASF has negociated preferential rates with Air France Cargo and, when needed with maritime carriers.
The custom clearance agent, Kuhne & Nagel is striving too obtain the best prices from other airline companies for the benefit of associations wishing to send humanitarian freight in large quantity.
In 2011, all in all, 12 tons of emergency cargo were shipped towards 30 destinations among which Sri Lanka, Nepal, Cambodia, Ethiopia, West and East Africa.
Additionally, thanks to a partnership with the Airbus Corporate Foundation and ATR, the plane manufacturer, ASF is offered free carriage of significant tonnage of emergency humanitarian aid.
In March 2011, within this frame, 400 kg were embarked on an ATR ferry flight to Manila, then, in May 6,500 kg on an Airbus to be delivered in Bogota, and finally, in November 610 kg on an Airbus overhauled in Toulouse and on its way back to Dakar.
