NZ goes e-freight live

Air New Zealand has embraced the e-freight initiative. Its first e-freight shipment was completed on 12 February on the Auckland to Brisbane trade lane. Congratulations to all the partners involved: DHL, Air New Zealand and Qantas.

 Paper-free air cargo now possible with Kenya Airways
Kenya Airways Cargo has completed the implementation of e-freight, the second African carrier to do so.

“Air cargo handling customers increasingly wanted shorter transit times, lower prices and increased reliability, while customs authorities were pushing for electronic information in advance," said Sauda Rajab, Kenya Airways General Manager Cargo. "The recent slow global economic growth has put pressure on cargo revenue and called on airlines to cut costs.”

The e-freight project in Kenya kicked off in April 2010, with Kenya Airways (KQ) and Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) as the key sponsors alongside other stakeholders, including the local freight forwarders association, ground handlers and government regulatory bodies.
