e-freight goes live in Geneva

GENEVA Airport has become e-freight capable, making it the second airport in Switzerland to become so.

Led by Swiss WorldCargo, the initiative also involved Lufthansa Cargo, Air France-KLM Cargo, RTW (representing Etihad and Air Mauritius), CEVA Logistics, Ritschard, DHL Global Forwarding, Kintetsu World Express, Swissport and Dnata, local customs authorities.

All parties involved in the local logistics chain will now be able to exchange their consignment details online.

“This significant step in improving data quality and efficiency, will further strengthen the leading role of Switzerland as a hub for urgent, sensitive and high value cargo,” said Oliver Evans (right), chief cargo officer of Swiss International Air Lines.

The implementation of e-freight at Basle-Mulhouse Airport is planned for the end of this year.
