Kale’s Air­port cargo man­age­ment soft­ware– GALAXY has been en­hanced to han­dle the com­plex do­mes­tic air­port cargo move­ments.

The en­hanced sys­tem com­pletely au­to­mates the do­mes­tic air cargo han­dling op­er­a­tions span­ning out­bound and in­bound cargo pro­cess­ing, EDI, Agent/Air­line in­voic­ing and MIS re­ports.

Ra­jesh Pan­icker, SVP, Kale Lo­gis­tics So­lu­tions said, “With do­mes­tic cargo han­dling fea­tures in­cluded in Galaxy, it has be­come a com­plete bou­quet for any Air­port Ter­mi­nal Op­er­a­tor. Han­dlers stand to re­alise con­sid­er­able ben­e­fits with re­duc­tion in their cargo han­dling cy­cle time. Also, var­i­ous charges which the trade part­ners of the Air­port had to bear ear­lier on ac­count of de­lays or er­rors have be­come a thing of the past. The sys­tem com­plies with all in­ter­na­tional air­port stan­dards and reg­u­la­tions and there­fore of­fers quick de­ploy­ment op­tions for Air­ports wit­ness­ing an ex­pand­ing cargo business.”

As per in­dus­try re­ports, in the next 10 years, the growth for do­mes­tic air cargo in emerg­ing mar­kets in Asia, Africa and Latin Amer­ica is pro­jected to be 11.7 per cent. In economies like In­dia, with the gov­ern­ment fo­cus­ing on ex­pand­ing do­mes­tic air con­nec­tiv­ity, the Civil Avi­a­tion Min­istry has iden­ti­fied 24 air­ports for de­vel­op­ing do­mes­tic cargo ter­mi­nals to cre­ate a na­tional lo­gis­tic net­work for faster move­ment of goods. This en­vis­ages the de­vel­op­ment of ded­i­cated cargo ter­mi­nals with proper pro­vi­sion­ing of

stor­age and han­dling of trans­ship­ment cargo as the ba­sic cri­te­ria.

GALAXY has sev­eral unique fea­tures in pro­vid­ing com­plete au­to­ma­tion for the Do­mes­tic Air Cargo Han­dling in­clud­ing-a web en­abled sys­tem, an end-to-end out­bound cargo pro­cess­ing con­sist­ing of ac­cep­tance, load­ing and de­par­ture (man­i­fest) process, in­bound process support con­sist­ing flight ar­rival, seg­re­ga­tion, fi­nal­i­sa­tion and lo­cat­ing to the ware­house. It also cov­ers trans­ship­ment and di­rect de­liv­ery pro­cesses.

The pric­ing and in­voic­ing en­gine al­lows au­to­matic gen­er­a­tion of in­voices at AWB level for the charge-line set. The air­port cargo han­dling com­mu­nity ben­e­fits by way of a web por­tal which pro­vides them on­line cargo sta­tus up­date and en­ables data ex­change be­tween the han­dler, air­lines and the cargo agents. The do­mes­tic air cargo han­dling process at air­ports can now be com­pletely au­to­mated with the GALAXY sys­tem, wherein they will have the abil­ity to per­form charge con­fig­u­ra­tion and get a clear view of the cargo move­ment.
