29 Mar How Kale’s technology interventions are helping customers to meet sustainability targets
Kale has developed technology interventions for airports and ports that eliminate paper-based systems, reduce congestion, and decrease cargo wait times. With Kale’s cargo community systems, supply chain actors can exchange real-time information on cargo movement, allowing for seamless integration and coordination between different stakeholders. These systems are already live at airports and ports around the world. By implementing these systems, airports and ports can save 1,500 to1,800 trees per year, reduce truck congestion by 80%, and help trucks save 30-40 percent of fuel while waiting in queues.
This translates to lower operational costs and a significant reduction in noise levels around airports. The improved efficiencies provided by Kale’s technology interventions can reduce operational costs by 30 percent, making airports and ports more attractive for shippers, airlines, and shipping lines, potentially turning them into regional cargo gateways or hubs.
In addition, users gain improved cargo visibility across the entire supply chain, which helps them comply with global regulatory and industry requirements, contributing to their ranking in Doing Business with World Bank. Amidst the challenges posed by COVID, Kale’s technology interventions enabled airport and port employees to work in a safe manner and practice social distancing while maintaining cargo security and planning.
Kale’s commitment to sustainability is reflected in their ongoing development of new technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, machine learning, internet of things (IoT), and wearables, all of which contribute to achieving sustainability goals.
