HYD Airport goes live with ACS by Kale Logistics
The new system seamlessly connects airport, cargo ground handlers, transporters, freight forwarders, customs brokers, airlines, importers/exporters and customs on a common, highly secured cloud-based IT platform.
Kale Logistics Solutions announced the go-live of its Airport Cargo Community System (ACS) at GMR Hyderabad International Airport (GHIAL). The platform aims to enhance efficiency, streamline procedures, and automate communication with stakeholders at the Airport's cargo complex.
GHIAL is the fourth busiest airport in India in terms of passenger traffic and is the nation's first greenfield airport. The salient feature of the airport's cargo terminal is its temperature-controlled pharma zone. It is the second airport in southern India to implement ACS to boost its cargo throughput.
The new system seamlessly connects airport, cargo ground handlers, transporters, freight forwarders, customs brokers, airlines, importers/exporters and customs on a common, highly secured cloud-based IT platform. The system is targeted towards promoting paperless trade with trade documentation now done online and ease of doing business. With this, Kale is now actively engaging at 100+ airport cargo stations worldwide.
With the deployment of Kale's ACS, the Airport will realise a significant improvement in cargo volumes and let the airport emerge as a hub for innovative activities. Moreover, this deployment with a 100 per cent adoption rate will enable the Airport to set sustainability benchmarks for airports globally.
Vineet Malhotra, Director and Co-Founder of Kale Logistics Solutions said, "GMR Hyderabad is a special milestone for us; it is the 100th air cargo station we signed last year. We have 99% adoption with Go Live, which speaks volumes about the efficacy of the ACS platform and its benefits. We are happy to assist the GMR Group with its digital transformation.”
“Our airport cargo community system is gradually becoming the default choice for all airports, not only in India but also in North America. With these deployments, we expect to witness a significant transformation in the air cargo industry. We have more airports in the pipeline that will go live with our flagship community platform. The future looks bright for us and the air cargo industry," he further added.
Kale's Cargo Community Systems has received several global accolades, including awards at the United Nations' award-winning cloud-based electronic platform for all stakeholders of the air cargo value chain to interact with each other digitally.
Also, this platform is one of the most comprehensive systems, which connects the Airport ecosystem to simplify, standardise and modernise connectivity as well as information flow throughout the value chain.
