Mumbai International Airport Limited has been rated e-freight compliant by IATA after it successfully achieved its initiative aim at minimising and subsequently eliminating the vast quantities of paper documents needed for its air cargo operations in Mumb
GVK-Mumbai International Airport Limited (GVK MIAL) has been rated as e-freight compliant by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) for adopting paperless initiatives at the air cargo operations in Mumbai - an initiative aimed to minimise the vast quantities of paper documents the air cargo industry relies on to support movement of air freight.
The e-freight compliance by GVK MIAL involves air carriers, ground handlers, shippers, customs authorities and freight forwarders to effectively streamline processes, cut costs and improve speed and reliability. This has resulted in expeditious processing, quality improvement and substantial time savings in cargo operations. The initiative will help in eliminating the use of paper documents.
“We would like to thank the entire trade fraternity for making this globally accepted industrywide initiative a great success at Mumbai and our technology partner Kale Logistics and stakeholders Lufthansa Cargo, Freight Wings and Khimji Poonja for official participation in the e-freight audit process,” said Manoj Singh, Vice President and Head (Cargo) - MIAL.
