A mile­stone for lo­gis­tics

The Ex­port Uni­ti­za­tion Zone is de­signed to of­fer one-stop so­lu­tion to the air­line cus­tomers and the fa­cil­ity be­ing closer to the freighter bay will pro­vide faster con­nec­tion of ULDs to the cargo air­craft.

The Mumbai In­ter­na­tional Air­port Pri­vate Limited (MIAL) has re­cently in­au­gu­rated its new Ex­port Uni­ti­za­tion Zone at the Ch­ha­tra­p­ati Shivaji In­ter­na­tional Air­port.

The Ex­port Uni­ti­za­tion Zone is spread over an area of 6,000 sq mt of­fer­ing fa­cil­i­ties like 10 work­sta­tions for cargo uni­ti­za­tion, ULD stor­age po­si­tions, 30-tonne ca­pac­ity ULD weigh­bridge, bat­tery-op­er­ated fork­lifts and ded­i­cated ma­te­rial han­dling equip­ment, plug points for ac­tive re­frig­er­ated con­tain­ers, stor­age fa­cil­ity for vul­ner­a­ble cargo and 24/7 se­cu­rity mon­i­tor­ing. Com­ment­ing on the fa­cil­ity,

Manoj Singh, Vice Pres­i­dent, MIAL said, “The fa­cil­ity that has com­menced op­er­a­tions of­fers one-stop so­lu­tion to the air­line cus­tomers cov­er­ing ser­vices like uni­ti­za­tion, ULD weigh­ment, gen­er­a­tion of IATA stan­dard air­line ULD tags and com­pre­hen­sive doc­u­men­ta­tion. The fa­cil­ity be­ing closer to the freighter bay caters faster con­nec­tion of ULD’s to the cargo air­crafts.”

MIAL goes green

The pro­ce­dure of cargo clear­ance at the Mumbai In­ter­na­tional Air­port is all set to get smoother. The air­port au­thor­i­ties have now fa­cil­i­tated all en­tries of im­ported-ex­ported goods to be up­dated on­line. This, in a ma­jor plus-point, makes the cargo han­dling di­vi­sion’s pro­cesses pa­per­less.

As the sys­tem has the ca­pa­bil­ity to val­i­date or­ders on­line be­fore the gen­er­a­tion of fi­nal gate pass, the op­er­a­tional work will be smoother.

The new sys­tem with an in­te­grated elec­tronic plat­form will strengthen dig­i­tal in­ter­face be­tween cargo ter­mi­nal op­er­a­tor and all air cargo stake­hold­ers, in­clud­ing Cus­toms, Cus­tom bro­kers, air­lines, freight for­warders, ship­pers, con­signees and other statu­tory bod­ies.

The fa­cil­ity of­fers one-stop so­lu­tion to the air­line cus­tomers cov­er­ing ser­vices like uni­ti­za­tion, ULD weigh­ment, gen­er­a­tion of IATA stan­dard air­line ULD tags and com­pre­hen­sive doc­u­men­ta­tion
