CHAMP Cargosystems and Air Cargo Belgium have launched an innovation platform – powered by CHAMP – to support and share new ideas within the Belgian hub’s air cargo community.

The new platform will offer access to stakeholders from the Air Cargo Belgium community to share information, ideas, and best practices with the objective to foster innovation.

This effort will bring broader collaboration among members, firstly to benefit the Belgian community and secondly the wider air cargo industry.

The initiative between CHAMP and Air Cargo Belgium builds on the original Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed in September 2020. The agreement outlined that CHAMP is the preferred partner in the roll-out and testing of any new technologies and innovations created in the roadmap.

In 2018, CHAMP joined Air Cargo Belgium, sharing its global air cargo IT insights as well as collaborating more closely with the members of the community.

“This initiative is a positive step forward for the community and will give a voice to all stakeholders – big and small – in our air cargo community,” said Geert Keirens, director at Air Cargo Belgium.

“Air Cargo Belgium is excited to continue its relationship with CHAMP and bring its community together on one platform for our mutual benefit.” 

Chris McDermott, chief executive officer at CHAMP Cargosystems, added: “Innovation requires not just the idea and drive to deliver it, but also the feedback to ensure its success. Indeed, this is part of our core philosophy of being open, collaborative, and innovative. CHAMP is excited to push that into practice for the air cargo supply chain with this platform.”

CHAMP is looking for similar opportunities to foster innovation with other regional communities by powering an innovation platform.
