IT solutions provider Kale Logistics Solutions has signed a memorandum of understanding with terminal operator NorthLink Aviation for digital cargo infrastructure at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport in Alaska.

They plan to create process automation platforms for e-commerce and cargo handling, a stakeholder collaboration platform and other cross-border management tools.

Kale specialises in IT enterprise systems and cargo community platforms for cargo terminal operators, logistics service providers forwarders, consolidators and others.

Anchorage International had the third highest activity among worldwide cargo airports in 2022 – it is a key refuelling point for transpacific flights – but NorthLink believes that it still has unrealised potential as a global logistics hub, especially for cross border e-commerce.

It has entered into a 55-year concession for a 120-acre property on the airport’s South Park campus and is developing aircraft parking, fuelling, de-icing, warehousing and office space.

NorthLink Aviation chief executive, Sean Dolan, said: “NorthLink is committed to developing and operating a world-class facility and responding to air cargo stakeholders’ evolving needs. We believe Kale is the right partner because of its comprehensive suite of technology offerings for the entire air cargo value chain. Kale’s digital infrastructure, combined with our vision for the logistics industry at ANC, is a recipe for success.”

Kale co-founder and chief executive, Amar More, added: “We are excited by the possibilities that Anchorage offers, and even more excited by NorthLink’s bold vision and passion. We firmly believe that technology is no longer a ‘nice to have’ or a ‘necessary evil,’ but indeed is a business driver for the logistics industry. We look forward to a productive journey with NorthLink.”
