Hamburg Airport is one of the first in Germany to introduce the FAIR@Link Air Cargo Community System from software developer Dakosy at its cargo centre.

The pilot project is planned to start this week at the German hub.

Alexander Müller, head of cargo at Hamburg Airport, said: “I’m pleased that we can implement the pilot project at Hamburg Airport Cargo Center together with our experienced partner Dakosy.

“I’m certain that the standardized early data exchange between the process participants made possible by FAIR@Link will create great added value for everyone. The pilot project will provide us with conclusive results for the processes at our air freight center.”

Said a spokesperson for Dakosy: “FAIR@Link is a neutral, IT-supported air cargo community system that enables all companies involved in freight handling processes – handling agents, forwarders, truckers and airlines – to accelerate their transport and freight processes for both import and export.

“Customs, security, dangerous goods and supply chain management processes are also supported – in many cases even automated.”

Dakosy chief executive Ulrich Wrage said: “Through intelligent process support and networking, FAIR@Link provides the ideal basis for further optimizing the physical processes between companies involved in air freight processing and for achieving significantly faster and more transparent processing.”
