Cargo handlers sign up to Schiphol truck booking project

Cargo handlers dnata and Menzies World Cargo have joined a pilot project for a trucking platform for cargo operations at airports.

The two handlers have joined the pilot project for CargoHub’s Trucking CDM platform being developed at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.

The platform communicates pick up notifications to road feeder operators, allowing all parties to plan efficient trucking itineraries and also sends automatic load advice electronically to loading and unloading stations.

“This not only eliminates the considerable volume of paperwork and emails, but saves time, money and unnecessary emissions from waiting vehicles as a result of unpredictable arrivals of trucks,” CargoHub said.

China Southern Airlines and Air China have also the pilot, along with road feeder operators such as Wallenborn and Jan der Rijk Logistics.

Raoul Paul, founder and managing director of CargoHub, said: “We have set new milestones on the communication and information exchange between truckers, handlers and airlines and are excited to work with our pilot partners to set new industry standards.”
