Siemens Logistics, Qatar Airways Cargo and Qatar Aviation Services (QAS) Cargo have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to promote close cooperation in digitalising cargo handling processes.

The collaborative project is due to deploy the latest in data analytics applications and predictive maintenance.

Planned activities under the MoU include joint workshops, mutual site visits, and technical assistance training.

Pilot studies, together with research and development, will also be part of the MoU.

“Artificial intelligence, machine learning and senseful data usage are becoming increasingly important within airfreight handling,” said Michael Reichle, chief executive of Siemens Logistics.

“We are excited to work with Qatar Airways Cargo and QAS Cargo in a forward-looking collaboration to jointly achieve results that will strengthen operational efficiency in demanding cargo processes.”

Qatar Airways Group chief officer cargo Guillaume Halleux said: “Our aim at Qatar Airways Group is to further implement digitally advanced, innovative cargo solutions to ensure that all stakeholders benefit from an even more sustainable and seamless operating environment.

“For this, Siemens Logistics is our clear choice as an experienced technology partner. With the signing of the MoU for digitalisation, we are preparing for the challenges to come.”

Qatar Cargo recently announced it would add capacity to online booking portals cargo.one and CargoAi as it continues efforts to expand its digital capabilities.
