Officials at the signing ceremony

India, Netherlands sign deal to set up digital air corridor

AMSTERDAM, February 22, 2018

Mumbai Airport, India, and Schipol Airport, the Netherlands, along with their partners for cargo community systems, Kale Logistics Solutions and Cargonaut, have launched an initiative to create a digital air corridor between India and the Netherlands.

India-based Kale Logistics Solutions is a leading global IT solutions provider focused on providing cutting edge technology solutions to the logistics industry.

Cargonaut has served the Dutch and international airport community for more than 30 years with the exchange of data via the airport digital infrastructure.

Through this unique trade facilitation initiative, the collaboratively created digital corridor will facilitate flow of information within the stakeholder chain and optimise cargo visibility across the stakeholder network, said a statement.

Following the signing, both companies will collaboratively develop a shared interface between their respective air cargo community systems, it said.

This interface shall be capable of facilitating exchange of cargo status at each individual location, followed by interchange of actual shipment data. At any time, participants of the network will be in full control of their data.

This pioneering initiative will help to reduce unnecessary administrative paperwork involved in shipment movement between the two countries, thus strengthening and easing cargo and data movement. This will enable both the countries to experience ease of shipment data exchange, it added.

Amar More, CEO, Kale Logistics Solutions, said: “We have always been at the forefront of driving trade facilitation across the Logistics and Supply chain sector. With this signing, we have reaffirmed our interest to contribute in initiatives that are imperative to drive ease of doing business and efficiency across the logistics and supply chain sector.”

“Collaborating with an accomplished partner like Cargonaut, has certainly given us an edge to extend our trade facilitation initiatives across Europe. We are very optimistic that this collaboration will set a benchmark for more such initiatives in the future,” he said.

Nanne Onland, CEO, Cargonaut, said: “The collaboration between Kale Logistics and us fits perfectly in our mutual aim to create a network of trusted networks.”

“Together we can establish a ‘virtual’ platform for our joined customers in India and the Netherlands,” he said.

“Trade facilitation initiatives like these are the way to the future in which airport communities, together with governments work closely together to improve, speed-up and simplify the air cargo business for all involved,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
