FSA awards 2024 Freightweek’s Sustainability Awards (FSA) are back and the winners are in.

Clinching the gong for Sustainable Cargo Airline of the Year was Emirates SkyCargo, with the carrier being applauded for its commitment to moving towards sustainable operations through a variety of measures, including the adoption of new technologies and its focus on a long-term global strategy.

Emirates may have picked up the all-round award when it comes to air, but with five regional winners the sense is that carriers worldwide are pushing ahead rather than lingering in the background on this issue. Winning it for Africa was Ethiopian Airlines Cargo, while LatAm Cargo took it home for the Americas. Collecting the regional sustainable airline award for Asia was Cathay Cargo, with Turkish Cargo and Qatar Airways Cargo winning it for Europe and the Middle East, respectively.

Commenting FSA director and Freightweek managing director Richard Broom acknowledged the very high level of excitement that Sustainability in our global industry engenders.

“The 2024 event has very successfully built on the 2023 voter numbers,” Broom told Freightweek. “In fact, 2024 Verified votes are the highest ever for the 17 award categories. I’m very proud that it is the Industry that decides on the winners, not a panel or committee; but the actual people involved in the industry across 152 countries worldwide that cast their vote.”

Looking ahead, Brooms sees only positive signs for the future. However, he struck a note of caution, warning the industry “we should never take sustainability for granted, by constantly pushing the sustainability agenda we can and do make a difference!”

Beating off strong competition from the likes of Dallas/Fort Worth and Miami International, Changi picked up the award for Sustainable Airport of the Year, while Bollore and Strike Aviation won their respective categories of Sustainable Forwarder and Sustainable GSSA. As far as the industry was concerned, there was only won winner for the Sustainable ULD Provider of the Year, which went to Unilode, following on from its success at last year’s FSAs. It was the Europeans “what won it” among global ports, Port of Antwerp walking away with the Sustainable Port of the Year FSA, with Swissport clinching the FSA for handling among a hotly contested field. In the shipping category, MSC fended off the likes of Maersk to receive its crown. CargoAi won it for Sustainable Cargo Technology, as Zipline picked up the award for Sustainable Drone Technology of the Year. Rounding out the categories, DSV won for Sustainable Transport and Logistics, with SEKO singled out by the industry for its Sustainable Warehousing product.
