Kale Logistics Solutions’ US subsidiary Info Solutions has entered a partnership with Chicago Rockford International Airport to implement its Airport Cargo Community System.
It will reduce manual documentation and data entry time for cargo handlers at RFD, increasing efficiency and reduce truck congestion, it said.
The mobile app will allow slots to be booked and adjusted any time, to accommodate peaks and troughs in truck arrivals at the airport.
Rockford’s annual air cargo throughput has tripled over the last five years and is now the fastest growing cargo airport on the planet, claims executive director, Mike Dunn.
He added: “Kale will allow us to further streamline the digitisation and movement of cargo at RFD today and to keep up with the demands of our growing cargo operations in the future. We look forward to helping RFD enhance business efficiencies at the airport, attract more airlines, and drive its sustainability credentials.”
