July 22, 2020: Etihad Cargo, the cargo and logistics arm of the Etihad Aviation Group, announced a new partnership with the intelligent supply chain solutions E2open to streamline regulatory compliance screening processes for shipments.

Scheduled to be fully operational by November, the E2open application implementation will enable Etihad Cargo to automate cargo screening against global regulations & sanctions, 600+ restricted party lists, dual-use commodities and military regulations for 170+ countries using E2open’s global trade content. The automated solution will improve efficiency, streamline workflows, minimise the risk of fines and penalties, and reduce the manual time associated with screening cargo.

In addition to comprehensive compliance checks based on global regulations, the E2open carrier cargo screening application also ensures alignment with Etihad Cargo’s protocols that prevent the carriage of endangered and threatened species, hunting trophies containing any animal parts, shark fins and live animals intended for use in scientific research.

Andre Blech, head of operations and delivery, Etihad Cargo, said, “Aside from being labour intensive, navigating the constantly changing regulations and export/import requirements often require coordination across multiple parties and compliance checks. Our partnership with E2open, which shares our vision for a truly digital logistics supply chain, increases Etihad Cargo’s service quality to customers, who benefit from the increased efficiency of real-time verification.”

Santosh Nanda, general manager of E2open's Logistics Service Providers business unit, said, "As carriers move goods around the globe, they face major challenges navigating through relevant trade regulations, sanctions and embargoes. Together with Etihad Cargo, E2open has simplified the complexity of staying abreast of evolving trade regulations, automating the screening of shipments, thereby providing compliance safeguards for Etihad customers while reducing shipment processing costs."
