Ostend-Bruges Airport in Belgium is equipping its cargo hub with a Nallian-powered OST Cargo Cloud to boost operational efficiency and transparency.

The OST Cargo Cloud is designed to enable a coordinated, digitalised approach to processes such as freight pick up and drop off, and the inspection of perishable goods.

It will also provide actionable insights into its end-to-end cargo streams.

Cargo Cloud applications including Inspection Management, Truck Visit Management, Check-it, and Cargo Statistics will enable the cargo hub to streamline all actions related to truck visits, the inspection of perishable goods, and the execution of operational and compliance checks.

Eric Dumas, chief executive at Ostend-Bruges Airport, commented: “This digital tool will allow Ostend airport to strengthen its attractiveness and further increase the speed of cargo handling which is already one of its main differentiating assets. It completes the ambitious development project “Ostend Cargo Village”, the first building phase of which is already under construction.”

Jean Verheyen, chief executive at Nallian: “It’s a misconception that solutions like Truck Visit Management, one of the collaborative applications on our Cargo Cloud, only generate value for big hubs facing congestion issues. The pandemic has illustrated the importance of air cargo and the need for efficient, transparent processes. Digitisation is the way to achieve this. It has proven to generate significant benefits for big and small cargo hubs, and we are very proud to support Ostend Airport on its digitisation journey.”

Ostend-Bruges International Airport recorded a cargo throughput increase of 17.8% in 2021.
