Over the past 2 years we have been experimenting on how realtime transparency and process control could be increased for airlines whilst operating transit shipments. In 2022 a pilot was joined to test new Cargo iQ Road Feeder Services (RFS) specifications for practicality, ensuring that the message standards to be exchanged between CargoHub, the trucking company and the airline work in practice.
The main objective of the pilot is to close the communication gap between the truck driver, the trucking company’s head office, and the airline. “Cargo IQ is setting the milestone requirements for status updates, indicating which messages the trucking companies have to send, and CargoHub will standardize the content of the messages by ‘translating’ it for the airlines,” said Lothar Moehle, Executive Director, Cargo IQ.

Open seats in an easy to access webbased account are now offered for airlines whom are interested to built a global cargo and trucking RFS control tower and wish to explore how realtime transparency and process control could be increased whilst operating transit shipments.
An air cargo and trucking road feeder service control tower is a centralized hub that allows airlines to monitor and manage their cargo and trucking operations. This control tower can significantly increase transparency and improve process control in the following ways:
The control tower provides real-time visibility into the entire supply chain, including trucking, air cargo, and ground handling. Airlines can track their shipments, identify any bottlenecks or delays, and take corrective actions to ensure that the cargo reaches its destination on time
The control tower allows airlines to have better control over their cargo and trucking operations. They can monitor the entire process, from the time the cargo is picked up from the shipper to the time it is delivered to the consignee. Airlines can set up alerts and notifications to identify any issues in the process and take corrective actions to minimize delays or disruptions.
The control tower facilitates collaboration between different stakeholders involved in the cargo and trucking operations. Airlines can share real-time data with their partners, including trucking companies, ground handlers, and customs authorities, to ensure that everyone is on the same page and working towards the same goals
The control tower can analyze data from various sources, including historical data, real-time data, and predictive analytics, to identify trends and patterns. Airlines can use this information to optimize their operations, reduce costs, and improve service levels.
The control tower can improve customer service by providing accurate and timely information about the status of the cargo. Airlines can proactively communicate with their customers, provide real-time updates, and manage their expectations effectively.
In summary, an air cargo and trucking road feeder service control tower can significantly increase transparency and improve process control for airlines. By providing real-time visibility, process control, collaboration, data analytics, and customer service, airlines can optimize their operations, reduce costs, and improve service levels.
