South African Airways Cargo (SAA Cargo) has won Best Cargo Airline-Africa at the 2017 Air Cargo Airline of the Year awards hosted by Air Cargo News.

The awards are an annual gala event where the air cargo industry gathers to recognise the very best of the industry across 14 categories. 

The airfreight industry awards were hosted by British television, stage and film comedian Stephen Mangan.  It was attended by more than 300 industry professionals who had flown in from all over the world to attend the ceremony, held at the Lancaster London Hotel

“We are very proud to have won the award.  It is more so because it is a vote of confidence from the air cargo industry,” said Tleli Makhetha, SAA Cargo’s general manager. 

The airline awards are based on the voting results of more than 18,000 supply chain professionals over a two-month period.  Shippers, the beneficial owners of the goods, and their logistics partners were asked to vote on the publication’s website for the airline that provided the best overall customer experience and for the best service provider in each region.
