Dnata joins Cargo iQ as it takes aim at performance monitoring

By Damian Brett

Ground handler dnata has joined Cargo iQ as a full member as it looks to help improve the monitoring of cargo performance across the supply chain.

The Dubai-headquartered ground handler’s stations in the UK and the Netherlands were previously members on an individual basis.

Cargo iQ’s membership is made up of stakeholders from across the air cargo supply chain and every member’s cargo flows are monitored across the supply chain.

“The dnata network has grown up fast over last few years,” said Guillaume Crozier, divisional vice president of operations and product development, dnata.

“As we extend our network, we strive to maintain a high level of performance in all aspects, making sure all our stations match with global quality and performance standards.

“Measuring the same things in the same manner will help us to have more data and performance-driven relationships with stakeholders’ versus perception based.”

 Crozier also said dnata is looking to go even deeper into its implementation and monitoring processes and wants to actively participate in Cargo iQ group discussions.

“It is great to have the whole organisation of dnata onboard as a full member, as they are a true global ground handling player and this will add a lot of value and further enhance Cargo iQ,” said Ariaen Zimmerman, executive director, Cargo iQ.

 “We look forward to dnata’s increased contributions to our initiatives that we run to help improve the movement of air cargo across the supply chain.”
