Airport cargo management system used by leading airport terminal operators, ground handlers and custodians worldwide, now disseminates AODB (Airport Operational Database) information to the stakeholders of the cargo being handled at the airports. The AODB is essentially the information pertaining to entire aircraft movement at the airports.
The Ground handling agents and Airline custodians have certain SLAs, as per which they need to upload and unload the cargo; segregate the cargo on time and meet customer expectations. Since all this processing is being done manually at most developing airports, any last minute flight change is not available to them resulting in chaos and delays. Custodians and airport cargo ground handlers require aircraft information which they currently receive from different flight information systems. However for actual usage most airport personnel end up creating records and reports manually. For instance, at present if there is a change in flight schedule, the airport personnel need to inform the concerned parties or trade partners manually.
Commenting on the occasion Mr. Vineet Malhotra, SVP, Kale Logistics Solutions said, “GALAXY is an end-to-end integrated airport cargo management solution, which captures the flight status information provided by various global entities and disseminates it on real-time basis. The availability of AODB service on GALAXY makes available complete information on aircraft movement right from flight schedule, aircraft location, landing & parking details to the cargo stakeholders.”
