Istanbul Grand Airport (IGA) has selected Kale Logistics Solutions (Kale) to provide a cargo community system to help automate communication between stakeholders.

The Airport Kargo Paydaş Platformu (KPP), which will be implemented in collaboration with TroyNet, will provide airlines, cargo agents, handlers, customs and security agencies access to all cargo-related information in a single location.

Kale said this should contribute to a reduction in lead times, speed up processing, reduce costs and improve asset utilisation.

“With this system, we will encourage digital trade, facilitate business, and establish a digital infrastructure to ensure that cargo moves faster at the least possible cost,” said Selahattin Bilgen, deputy chief executive, İGA.

“Istanbul is a critical air cargo connection point and we are determined to develop and expand our air cargo network – the implementation of KPP is an important milestone in providing best-in-class services to our customers and stakeholders,” 

Vineet Malhotra, director and co-founder of Kale Logistics Solutions, added: “For more than a decade, Kale has been combining its deep industry knowledge and experience of working with more than 100 air cargo stations to help airports transform into smart logistics hubs.”
