Software company DAKOSY is expanding the INFr8 air cargo portal to include a mobile application for the processing of shipment data.
Beginning in May, customers will be able to use the so-called INFr8 app, available for Android and iOS devices, which is an extension of the original platform which was developed jointly with airport operator Fraport.
The app is based on the design of the INFr8 web application. In addition to a configurable overview of ongoing processes, it also includes a dashboard that shows the logistical and technical milestones achieved, as well as notifications that inform users about rejected electronic dangerous goods declarations (eDGDs).
Anne Ebeling, project manager for INFr8 at DAKOSY, said: “Mobile applications that are integrated into our clients’ everyday work have proven most effective. It was therefore a logical step for us to expand the INFr8 shipping portal in that direction.
“With the app, we make linking and transparency along the entire process chain even easier and more targeted. Users want to be informed proactively and as early as possible if there are discrepancies in their documentation. We can meet this requirement perfectly with the INFr8 mobile solution.”
The integration of IATA checklists and their adaptation for mobile devices is also to be implemented into the second development stage of the app.
The INFr8 shipping portal, which went live at the beginning of 2020, digitalizes and standardizes the legally-required DGD.
As an eDGD, it can be checked early on in the process and quickly corrected if necessary. This avoids time delays and ensures the smooth flow of dangerous goods.
