WELCOME TO ASL CARGOVISION!
Together with leading new technology companies, ASL Aviation Holdings developed a forum in late 2020 and called it ASL CargoVision. The objective is to help raise awareness of ASL and the Forum members’ position on both innovative new technologies and sustainability for air cargo operations. Sustainable aviation is the future. ASL, through the European Regions Airline Association (ERA) has signed-up to Destination 2050, the aviation industry led programme to achieve net-zero emissions in aviation by 2050. Although 29 years away, the challenge is huge, and it is therefore essential that the foundations are laid between now and 2030 to realise net zero CO2 emissions in 2050 and reduce reliance on economic measures. Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) are likely to play a big part in the near-term sustainability programmes of airlines operating medium to large passenger and cargo aircraft. Aircraft powered by electric engines and aircraft powered by hydrogen are now quite advanced in the development process. These next generation aircraft are opening new possibilities for cargo operations serving the express parcel, postal and online retail markets. This would be a new market and a new area of aviation, but it will also be the foundation on which the industry will build the solutions that will bring us to Destination 2050. ASL and the other members of the CargoVision Forum will promote these new technologies as they bring sustainability to the aviation industry, and particularly to cargo operations.
