Budapest adopts Kale’s Airport Cargo Community system


Currently, cargo handlers and integrators use separate IT systems for data collection, reporting and transmission at the gateway. Kale’s ACS system provides enhanced visibility and transparency, with real-time tracking and monitoring of cargo movements and automated regulatory compliance checks.

Airport cargo director József Kossuth said: “Budapest Airport aims to become the main cargo hub in the Central and Eastern European region. We are now the fastest growing airport in the region in terms of cargo volume, as we handled a record 201,306 tons in 2023 with +48.5% increase compared to 2019. The ACS will serve as a centralised platform, facilitating seamless communication and data exchange among all stakeholders involved in the cargo handling process.”
