Asia Airfreight Terminal (AAT) is thrilled to announce that we have been named the “Sustainable Warehouse Operator of the Year 2023” by Freightweek Sustainability Awards for the second year in a row.
This prestigious award recognizes our dedication to sustainability and ongoing efforts to drive positive environmental change within the logistics industry.
AAT places an absolute priority on sustainability and strives to operate in a sustainable manner.
Since 2008, we have achieved a 50% reduction in our carbon footprint through various green initiatives, such as switching 95% of our work vehicles to run on electricity with the setup of on-site charging stations, retrofitting the warehouse with LED lighting, and adopting solar-powered LED lights in outdoor areas.
Our recent launch of AAT COOLPORT, the first on-airport cold chain facility with a complete temperature-controlled environment, is also built with sustainability in mind.
COOLPORT features non-ozone depleting refrigerants offering a low global warming potential (GWP), double doors, air curtains, speed doors, and thermal insulation panels.
All are purposedesigned and built to minimize heat loss to achieve energy savings.
