In recent times, the global air cargo industry has gained significant ground towards expanding its automated and digitalized processes and industry estimates expect it to continue to do so in the years to come. The striking increase of volumes in the air cargo industry is demanding to upgrade the existing systems to digital (Air Cargo Software) for a better and hassle-free workflow. Welcoming Air Cargo software in the air cargo industry leads to vital changes globally.
A marked number of airlines across the world have already started to eliminate legacy paper-based systems by adopting the use of digital processes, which includes using air freight software, ULD measuring digital devices, applications for declaring dangerous goods and web-based booking and tracking platforms to monitor the movement of shipments in real-time. Manual intervention will be reduced drastically with the deployment of Air Cargo software.
Technology adoption for air cargo management is also on the rise with freight forwarders, integrators and airports. More and more airports are requiring ground handlers and providers to make reservations of slots on digital platforms, thereby boosting efficiency, optimising costs and carbon footprints through heightened visibility and effective data-sharing. Air Cargo software eased many airports’ cargo management with its advanced ticketing, web-based booking, and tracking methods.
At the level of regulatory initiatives, IATA in 2018 declared that the electronic air waybill (e-AWB) will become the default contract of carriage for all air cargo shipments on enabled trade lanes, with effect from January 1, 2019.
The global air cargo industry is a sunrise sector. Each day tons of cargo moves through air routes. The volume of air cargo being moved globally is ever-increasing and airports find it difficult to keep pace with expansion in terms of infrastructure, workforce and level of automation.
