Only a limited number of airports in the aviation world have successful passenger and cargo operations. Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is one of them. In 2010 1,5 tons of cargo were transported via Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, placing it third within Europe. Globally, Schiphol is ranked 17th for cargo, making it one of the leading cargo airports in the world.

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is optimally situated at about three hours’ flying time from all points in Europe and connects 301 destinations in 99 countries. Only a 15-minute drive from Amsterdam City Center, the airport is also one of the most accessible in Europe, with modern road, rail and air links, offering connections via private or public transport to cities in several countries. The High Speed Railway Line (HSL), which stops at Schiphol as well as Amsterdam center, will reduce travel time to other major European hubs such as Brussels, Paris, Frankfurt and Munich by 2011. A feasibility study is currently being conducted on a dedicated freight railway terminal directly south of the cargo areas to plan options for ongoing air cargo transport by fast lane or high speed rail.
