Athens International Airport launches Nallian-powered Cargo Cloud
Athens International Airport launches Nallian-powered Cargo Cloud to maximize capacity and facilitate freight pick ups and drops offs in the frame of the STARGATE Initiative
Athens, Brussels 16th May 2023 – In the frame of STARGATE (SusTainable AiRports, the Green heArT of Europe), an EU project focused on the development of innovative solutions to create the green airports and aviation of the future, AIA will be implementing Nallian’s Cargo Cloud, aiming to facilitate growth in a synergetic manner through optimization of the Airport’s cargo area physical infrastructure.
The application to be initially used is Truck Visit Management, which coordinates freight pickups and drop offs between cargo handlers, freight forwarders and trucking companies. It will involve key players in the air cargo activity for the first phase of the project scheduled for a period of 12-months effective July 2023.
The solution consists of a digital front desk and slot booking system which enables cargo stakeholders to make landside dock capacity available for slot booking and maximize usage while facilitating resource planning and eliminating wait times at the gates.
Alexios Sioris, Ground Handling and Cargo Development Manager AIA, comments: “Predictable and efficient processes involving digital solutions empower our cargo community with effective tools towards a sustainable operation. The Truck Visit Management solution is expected to eliminate congestion and wait times at our cargo terminals and improve effectiveness, by complementing the existing systems of the air cargo stakeholders.”
Jean Verheyen, CEO Nallian, adds: “Our Cargo Cloud, which is used by airports big and small in Europe, Asia and the US, allows a step by step digitalization approach. We are proud to support Athens International Airport on their digital journey, starting with the optimization of their landside management process in the context of the STARGATE initiative .”
