Air Cargo Belgium receives Air Cargo News Digital Innovation Award for Digital Green Lane initiative
16 September 2021 - We love it when our customers do great! Air Cargo Belgium, Brussels Airport’s cargo community association, has taken home the Digital Innovation award at the 2021 Air Cargo News Conference. They were awarded for the Digital Green Lane initiative, which ensures a 100% digitalized pick up and drop off process at Brussels Airport’s cargo zone.
A uniform, 100% digitalized pick up & drop off process
The Digital Green Lane is a uniform, standardized pick-up & delivery process between freight forwarders and ground handling agents. This means that all freight is being picked up or dropped off against a registered time slot, freight information is shared digitally throughout the process and all actions during the pick-up and drop off process are registered by the driver on a mobile device. This is enabled by a suite of landside management apps in BRUcloud, BRUcargo’s Cargo Cloud powered by Nallian. Ground Handling Agents and Freight Forwarders representing 75% of the freight volumes at Brussels Airport have already committed to guaranteeing a 100% digitalized process via the Digital Green.
“We can put our staff to better use as we know in advance who is coming when and can plan accordingly. Having better insights in our activity also learns us when to open up more gates.”
Johan Rosiers – Business Unit Manager - dnata
