Kale Logistics Solutions (Kale) has signed a contract to extend its digitalisation partnership with longstanding customer CHI Aviation Handling (CHI) by a further five years.

Frankfurt-based air cargo services provider CHI said it has boosted the efficiency and productivity of its ground handling operations using Kale’s cargo management system, GALAXY, to digitalise cargo handling.

The GALAXY cargo handling software is designed to offer full automation of processes, clear visibility, control, collaboration, and problem-free integration within the stakeholder network.

“We have chosen to continue partnering with Kale to help support our vision digital transformation; we need a reliable IT system that can be easily implemented at every airport station where we are operating and Kale’s GALAXY is the best fit solution,” said Dominik Misskampf, managing director, CHI.

“We share a common desire with Kale to create digital channels that make a difference in serving all our customers, both businesses and consumers, by increasing accessibility to our service and improving our response times.

“Working with a world leader in technology services and digital delivery, whose values reflect our own, is a significant milestone in our digital journey and we are looking forward to delivering on our ambitious plans.”

“CHI has been a valuable partner as one of our long-standing clients,” said Amar More, chief executive and co-founder of Kale Logistics Solutions. “Over the years, they have offered day-to-day inputs on operations, based on which we have refined our cargo management system, GALAXY.

“This gives us the opportunity to serve them even better in the coming years and has strengthened our collaboration in the German air cargo sector, and we are pleased to be their partner of choice for future-proofing their technologies and managing their digital transformation strategy.”

Currently, more than 85 airports in the US, Europe, Middle East, Africa, and India use GALAXY to manage their air cargo operations for import, export, and transit cargo.

Earlier this month, Kale’s US subsidiary, Kale Info Solutions, announced it would support growing cargo throughput at Vancouver International Airport in Canada with the implementation of its Airport Cargo Community System (ACS), to bring efficiency, transparency, and sustainability to cargo operations at the airport.
