Finnair Cargo today introduced its new Internet of Things (IoT) air cargo monitoring tool, Finnair Cargo Eye, at Slush, Europe’s leading start-up event where it also invited start-ups to collaborate for air cargo industry transformation.
Finnair Cargo Eye is a concrete IoT solution that will transform the airline’s cargo operation and customer value creation, the carrier said. It integrates multiple data sources, transactional ERP data and IoT sensors into a presentation layer with a visual layout for operational steering that will help Finnair’s newly formed Cargo Control Center (CCC) to effectively monitor and steer cargo flows in real time within Finnair network.
The Cargo Eye provides end-to-end visibility for Finnair operations, and will in the future also enable a more comprehensive transparent real-time information to customers. It is a platform for real-time business steering, identifying exceptions that require action to be taken. The tool has been created with Qoco Systems and it is integrated with the following systems feeding data into it:
– SkyChain, Finnair’s cargo management system (ERP) by Accelya – e.g. booking data
– Sensire – e.g. location, temperature and humidity of shipments monitored by Sensire sensors
– Kaltiot – e.g. Finnair Cargo ground transport vehicles location or temperatures of shipments monitored with Kaltiot trackers
“We are happy to present Cargo Eye at Slush, and invite start-ups to innovate with us for improved productivity and establishing fully transparent E2E value chains for proactive cargo network steering. Slush is a great event to look for potential new partners for IoT enabled transformation”, says Janne Tarvainen, managing director, Finnair Cargo.
