Swissport has rolled out an app for its cargo handlers, developed by Champ Cargo systems, to further digitalise its airfreight warehousing processes and provide real-time visibility on cargo shipments.

Features of the app include live shipment status updates, data insights and safety mechanisms for the handling of dangerous goods.

The app is currently being used in five Swissport facilities — in Helsinki, Basel, Hamburg, Manchester and Frankfurt — and will be rolled out to 76 more locations by the end of 2022.

The next rollout locations are Swissport facilities in Africa, Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain, the UK and Ireland, and the US.

“With these process steps in future supported with real-time visibility, customers can keep track of their shipment status according to Cargo iQ standards,” Swissport said in a statement.

Hendrik Leyssens, vice president of global operations cargo at Swissport, commented: “Our new cargo app enables us to take the digitalisation of our air cargo business to the next level.”

“The improved visibility of every individual shipment will benefit airlines, forwarders and our own workers alike. Beyond that, this new way of working delivers a wealth of data, clearing the way for further optimisation and streamlining the cargo flow at Swissport warehouses.”
