Community is the key to efficiency, says Kale chief


Air cargo community systems are driving profitability and sustainability and accelerating digital take up in the industry, Amar More, Chief Executive of  Kale Logistics Solutions told Air Cargo India convention.

Such systems are helping stakeholders to work together, he explained to delegates at the gathering n in Mumbai on 15 February.

Airport congestion and operational inefficiency can be alleviated through a common digital platform, More said.

“Air Cargo Community systems act as an ‘Air Cargo Single Window’, that facilitates ease of business and global trade by eliminating duplication of data entry, reducing unnecessary paperwork, tackling airport congestion issues, and bringing shipment visibility to all stakeholders,” More in a panel discussion on digitalisation.

“Delivering end-to-end collaboration through a single platform is imperative to ensuring our industry fully embraces digitalisation, as it is essential for facilitating better coordination, resource optimisation, and rapid information exchange between all parties involved.”

“The true benefits of digitalisation emerge only when an entire ecosystem embraces it – partial adoption falls short,” said More.

 “Operational efficiency driven by faster processing and the ability to provide real-time visibility and accurate tracking are all perks now expected by customers, making adopting digital solutions a necessity to compete in our industry.”

Kale works with more than 100 air cargo stations to help airports become digitally connected logistics hubs and in May will unveil its CLEAR VIEW Air Cargo invitation-only event in Istanbul on 17-18 May, focusing on best practices for digitalising the supply chain
