Ground handler Worldwide Flight Services (WFS) has transitioned 15 of its air cargo handling stations in France to CHAMP’s Cargospot Software-as-a-Service (SAAS) solution.

WFS signed a contract with CHAMP last year to implement Cargospot as the core cargo management system for its Europe, Middle East, Africa and Asia operations.

This latest migration in France, the country with most WFS stations in the region, covers cargo terminal operations in Paris CDG, Paris Orly, Bordeaux, Lille, Lyon, Mulhouse, Montpellier, Marseille, Nice, Nantes, Strasbourg, and Toulouse.

France joins WFS cargo stations in Belgium, Denmark, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, and Sweden which have already deployed the new system.

The migration includes the Cargospot Mobile application using modern iOS or Android smartphone or tablet devices, enabling WFS to remove manual processes and paperwork from the air cargo handling process.

Cargospot is designed to provide faster access to real-time data and greater visibility of air cargo. Users can access real-time status information on export and import airfreight shipments, measured against key milestones agreed in respective customer Service Level Agreements (SLAs).

“The rollout of Cargospot SAAS across our EMEAA stations is on track thanks to the response of our teams across the region to embrace this new technology. By investing to replace paper-based processes, we are enabling our teams of cargo handling professionals to focus on our main priorities of safety, security, and operational excellence.

“More of our stations in EMEAA will switch over to Cargospot in the coming weeks as we continue to deliver our digital roadmap and gain the benefits this provides for both WFS and our customers,” said Pedro Garcia, group chief information officer at WFS.
