Etihad Cargo signs up for cargo dimensioning software

By Damian Brett

Etihad Cargo has entered into a Proof-of-Concept agreement with SpeedCargo to utilise the Singapore-based provider’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) products to boost cargo capacity on flights.

Etihad Cargo is the second aviation company to sign up for the Cargo Eye dimensioning system that helps ensure capacity is fully utilised.

“Etihad Cargo’s goal is to assess whether implementing Cargo Eye and Cargo Mind could ensure a complete end-to-end process which totally transforms airfreight operations,” explained Martin Drew, senior vice president sales and cargo at Etihad Aviation Group.

“The Proof-of-Concept will confirm whether these advanced SpeedCargo products can boost efficiency, productivity and revenue returns through digital technology solutions, with the plan to integrate them into our operations in 2022.”

He added: “By maximising cargo across flights and ULD container configurations according to internal loading rules, Etihad Cargo can boost capacity by more than 3,000 tonnes a year, equating to a significant increase in revenue yield.”
