FINANCIAL platform PayCargo has teamed up with Air Cargo Netherlands to help simplify the payment and collection of the association’s membership and delegate transactions.

PayCargo’s online solution allows you to move cargo and reduce payment costs with patented technology. It has more than 4000 vendors in its network including major ocean carriers, air cargo providers, and hundreds of terminals and CFS stations.

Over 1000 of these vendors release the cargo within an hour after receiving the payment approval alert from PayCargo. All other vendors release cargo no later than the next morning.

The Dutch trade association has signed up to use PayCargo’s encrypted online payment platform to process payments from members and delegates at its events.

PayCargo, which last year processed USD4bn in transactions for logistics firms, has tailored its platform to support ACN’s needs.

Adriaan Reinders, CEO of PayCargo Europe said, “ACN has done a huge amount in recent years for the progression of the air cargo industry in the Netherlands by promoting digital solutions and the benefits of adopting a versatile digital payment system.

“They are not just preaching about the benefits of digital solutions, they are leading by example.”


ACN is the only air freight industry association in the Netherlands, with more than 300 members, and aims to develop the Dutch air cargo industry through educational projects, digital innovation, and increased transparency and connection between supply chain members.

Maarten van As, managing director at ACN, said, “We want to make adopting this new solution as easy as possible for ACN members to prepare for the future while underscoring the importance of digitization across the air cargo value chain.

“To practice what we preach as an industry organisation, our members can now pay their membership fee through PayCargo to become familiar with new digital solutions that will drive efficiency in the cargo chain.”
