As the air logistics industry struggles back to resume its vital role, there is a greater than ever need to reduce costs and for more transparency and efficiency in all aspects of the supply chain process.
This is especially true of ground operations where cargo can often be delayed unnecessarily thus creating expensive and unacceptable delays. The recent pandemic has thrown a new light on air cargo operations and the need for more efficiency and digitisation.
