Luxembourg Airport to develop cargo community system

By Damian Brett

Participants in the Luxembourg CCS project

Luxembourg Airport has selected Nallian to implement a cargo community system (CCS) in order to offer a neutral data sharing platform for businesses based at the hub.

The airport said that the CCS represented an important component of the Luxembourg Single Window for Logistics programme and will be open to all actors involved in international trade.

The CCS will enable real-time capturing and sharing of granular information regarding shipment processing, to “better plan and execute” processes and “drive efficiency and visibility with in-depth insights in performance”.

The first phase of the roll out will cover perishable and live animal shipments and will only be available to Cargolux, LuxairCargo, Kuehne+Nagel, Arthur Welter and the public administrations concerned.

The CCS will then be rolled out to all types of cargo and all companies that are interested to join.

René Steinhaus, chief executive of lux-Airport, said: “Lux-Airport is excited to implement, together with its cargo community, a data sharing platform.

“With this decision lux-Airport demonstrates its commitment to support the airport cargo community and to foster the competitiveness and further growth of Luxembourg as a European multimodal logistics hub.”

In 2019 Luxembourg airport handled 893,090 tons of cargo.
