Singh, Vice Pres­i­dent (Cargo), MIAL.

High­light­ing the key fea­tures of the ser­vice, Singh in­formed that GMAX is a multi-modal uni­fied elec­tronic plat­form that will strengthen dig­i­tal in­ter­face be­tween cargo ter­mi­nal op­er­a­tor and all air cargo stake­hold­ers in­clud­ing Cus­toms, Cus­toms bro­kers, air­lines, freight for­warders, ship­pers/ con­signees and other statu­tory bod­ies.

Singh as­serted that GMAX would bridge the com­mu­ni­ca­tion gap and im­prove vis­i­bil­ity, qual­ity and re­li­a­bil­ity of the air cargo sup­ply. “We are sure GMAX will de­velop into a vi­tal as­set for MIAL to con­nect with global air trans­port and trans­form Mum­bai air­port as an e-freight sta­tion,” he main­tained.

Ac­cord­ing to Sumeet Nad­kar, CEO and MD of Kale Lo­gis­tics; this is a very sig­nif­i­cant mile­stone for the com­pany. “It is a demon­stra­tion of the ca­pa­bil­ity of our so­lu­tion GALAXY to power e-freight at CSI Air­port. We are con­fi­dent that this will take trade and cus­tomer fa­cil­i­ta­tion at MIAL to the next level,” he em­pha­sised.
