Nallian to offer RFS slot booking app at Brussels Airport

Air cargo software firm Nallian has launched a road feeder management app that will allow trucking companies and ground handlers to co-ordinate airport-to-airport pick-ups and deliveries at Brussels airport.
The app enables road feeder companies and ground handlers to utilise slot booking to more accurately plan resources. It also provides real-time updates on estimated arrival times while updating drivers when they are on the road.
In a first phase, starting in July, the app will be used by handlers WFS and Aviapartner and by trucking companies H. Essers, Ninatrans and Jan De Rijk Logistics.
The application is an extension to Nallian’s slot booking app and is integrated with Be-Mobile’s mobile app for truck drivers, “Truckmeister”.
Nallian said that slot booking systems can provide some challenges for road feeder service companies as estimated times of arrival are more likely to shift as they are operating off-premises and tend to travel longer distances.
“The Road Feeder Management app is designed to answer these specific needs: the app slots are booked dynamically, meaning they are adjusted automatically in view of the actual ETA,” Nallian said.
“For this, the application integrates with Be-Mobile’s Truckmeister app, which is used by drivers for navigation by using traffic guidance and updating the ETA during the drive. It also enables communication between handlers and drivers, with push notifications available in nine languages.”
