Ground handler dnata has signed up to use Siemens Postal, Parcel & Airport Logistics' (SPPAL) software platform for its operations in Dubai.

The appointment system will allow all land transport processes up to the hub’s dock side to be handled digitally.

"The benefits for dnata will include significantly increased transparency and the seamless, IT-based cooperation with freight forwarders, agents and airlines," SPPAL said.

Last year, dnata contracted SPPAL to upgrade the automation inside the terminal with its Cargo Compact software.

Siemens has built and expanded the baggage and air cargo systems at both Dubai International Airport and the new Al Maktoum International Airport. In addition, the company is a long-term partner for the related services and software applications.

Bernd Struck, senior vice president UAE Cargo & DWC airline services, dnata, said: "With end-to-end digitalisation of our processes we are able to tailor our services even more closely to our customer’s requirements and further increase our competitiveness."
