Kale Logistics Solutions is implementing a cargo community system at Istanbul Grand Airport (İGA), the first of its kind at a Turkish airport.
The ACS platform will help turn İGA into a transfer centre and will give agents, airlines, transporters, handlers, Customs, and security agencies access to all cargo-related information on a common platform.
Airport Kargo Paydaş Platformu (KPP), developed by Kale, will be implemented in collaboration with cargo digitisation specialist, TroyNet.
The airport’s deputy chief executive officer, Selahattin Bilgen, said: “Istanbul is a critical air cargo connection point and we are determined to develop and expand our air cargo network – the implementation of KPP is an important milestone in providing best-in-class services to our customers and stakeholders.
“We want to take our place as one of the world’s most important global transfer centres and with this system, we will encourage digital trade, facilitate business, and establish a digital infrastructure to ensure that cargo moves faster at the least possible cost.”
Director and co-founder of Kale Logistics Solutions, Vineet Malhotra (pictured), added: “For more than a decade, Kale has been combining its deep industry knowledge and experience of working with more than 100 air cargo stations to help airports transform into smart logistics hubs.
“Our next-gen ACS is transforming Istanlbul’s cargo operations with tech agility by supporting seamless customer experience, and optimising value chains for airports and nations at large.”
