11 / 07 / 2017

Ground handler Celebi has gone live with IT provider Kale’s Galaxy (domestic module) cargo management system at its Delhi cargo terminal in India.

The move forms part of a phased implementation of the entire suite of Galaxy Air Cargo management software system comprising of export/import operations, warehouse management, invoice and accounts and domestic operations.

The new domestic module incorporates features including a mobile app, customer portal, hand-held based app and EDI with airlines.

Celebi Delhi Cargo Terminal Management India is a Joint Venture between Delhi International Airport Private Ltd (DIAL) and Celebi Ground Handling of Turkey.

Ramesh Mamidala, chief executive of Celebi Delhi Cargo Terminal Management, said: “Modern day freight challenges need technology to enable innovative practices to move businesses forward.  

"With our domestic operations going live on Galaxy, we look forward to greater automation of our operational processes and getting quick and comprehensive information on consignment and cargo tracking.

“This significant development will help to speed up shipment times, improve efficiency and reduce costs.”

Delhi is a leading Indian e-commerce hub and the city’s airport has one of the country’s largest volumes of domestic cargo movement operations.

Mamidala added: “Celebi-Delhi’s current domestic handling system was challenged by an increased load of cargo and connectivity issues. Hence we decided to move forward with the latest technology solution to cater to this demand.

“Kale’s Galaxy is the perfect solution, which, with minor customizations fulfilled all our requirements. We would soon be going live on our international operations.”

Amar More, chief executive of Kale Logistics Solutions, said: “Galaxy is a global application that is being used by worldwide airports that incorporate global best practices and prepare the industry to manage the demands of e-commerce”.
