Tak­ing cargo to Cloud web-based so­lu­tions

Cargo Talk - - Aviation -

At IATA's e-Cargo Con­fer­ence and Work­shop in Geneva, WIN's John DeBenedette urged the air cargo com­mu­nity to make the long­due shift to an in­ter­net-based plat­form and to aban­don out­dated 'store and for­ward' mes­sag­ing. WIN is an e-plat­form for air for­warders.

For­warders trans­port cargo through air– com­pa­nies that of­fer door-to-air­port and air­port-to-door ser­vices. This process is not a lin­ear one and com­prises a net­work of nodes or in­ter­me­di­ate sta­tions, which are ba­si­cally air­ports on way to the des­ti­na­tion. At these nodes, cargo is stored and then later flown to another node or di­rectly to its des­ti­na­tion, as the case may be. DeBen­nette ad­vo­cates de­bunk­ing of tech­nol­ogy used in this process, which is of­ten in­ef­fi­cient and ex­pen­sive, and urges that the busi­ness model of avi­a­tion cargo be re­newed with new tech­nolo­gies.
