Royal Air Maroc, first African airline to be Cargo iQ certified

Royal Air Maroc has successfully obtained its Cargo iQ certification in accordance with the Cargo iQ quality management standards of the airfreight industry, following the example of major players in the supply chain, including freight forwarders, air carriers and leading global IT solution providers.

Royal Air Maroc becomes the first African airline to be granted this certification.

Originally founded by major airlines and freight forwarders to make the supply chain more reliable, Cargo iQ, an IATA special interest group, has now grown to more than 60 members from across the supply chain including airlines, freight forwarders, ground handlers, IT solution providers, trucking services and, more recently, small and medium-sized forwarders.

In addition to this prestigious certification, which reflects the rapid and measurable progress made by the national airline in the field of air cargo, Royal Air Maroc has also been granted two additional stars in the categories of “Corporate Social Responsibility” and “Spirit of Innovation”.

Valid for a period of 3 years following a rigorous audit conducted by an accredited certification body, this renewable certification follows Royal Air Maroc’s adhesion to the Cargo iQ community in 2019.

This audit is intended to assess the compliance of members’ operations based on a Master Operating Plan (MOP).

This master plan focuses on standardizing processes and improving transparency by interfacing shipment data exchanges between stakeholders for accurate planning and proactive monitoring.
