e-Cargo Conference Success

Industry demonstrates further collaboration towards 'e'

The e-Cargo Conference attracted over 180 delegates from across the world to Geneva from 24-26 June 2014. A number of positive outcomes and success stories were shared during the conference:

  • Turkish Airlines announced that they are anticipating a doubling of their current home market penetration from 20 to 40%
  • Cathay Pacific (CX) is pushing ahead with their 100% market plan and, together with KLM, has implemented single process worldwide
  • Participants learned that all of India and parts of Brazil are now open for e-AWB, and that there is more than one way to implement Single Process

 

First Brazilian Airport open to e-AWB

After a successful pilot, in Brazil, which involved Lufthansa Cargo, DB-Schenker, VCP Airport and the Customs Authorities, VCP airport is the first Brazilian airport that has officially opened to e-AWB for export. VCP airport authority encourages all the carriers operating out of VCP to implement the single process.

 

Local Collaboration leads the way in Belgium

After many years of e-AWB stagnation in Belgium, DGF, under the leadership of Jean Claude Delen and Manu Jacobs from Air France - KLM Cargo, decided to move forward with e-AWB at Brussels airport. Following a short pilot period, they have successfully fully deployed e-AWB and this has resulted in an impressive structural e-AWB penetration growth for Belgium: from 1.3% to 4.4% This productivity gain between Air France- KLM Cargo and DGF demonstrates great collaboration in leading e-initiatives in their local market.

 

Single Process, AA Markers of Progress

How American Airlines increased e-AWB penetration

American Airlines' (AA) sales activation push and the adoption of the new single process at their DFW hub is paying off. In May, AA e-AWB penetration increased by two and a half times compared to the previous month.
