With rising cargo volumes reaching nearly 900,000 tonnes in 2019, Luxembourg Airport (LUX) is engaging Nallian to implement a cargo community system (CCS).
The CCS represents an important component of the Luxembourg Single Window for Logistics programme and will be set up as a neutral IT platform, open to all actors involved in international trade.
Enabling real-time capturing and sharing of granular information regarding shipment processing, far beyond the traditional cargo data, it will empower all stakeholders involved to better plan and execute their processes and will drive efficiency and visibility with in-depth insights in performance, the airport says.
In a first implementation phase in 2020, the application’s operability and added value for the cargo community will be tested. Upon the successful run of perishables and live animals shipments with a limited number of involved actors, namely Cargolux, LuxairCargo, Kuehne+Nagel, Arthur Welter and the public administrations concerned, the CCS is to be rolled out to all types of cargo and all companies that are interested to join.
Says René Steinhaus, CEO of lux-Airport: “Lux-Airport is excited to implement, together with its cargo community, a data sharing platform. With this decision lux-Airport demonstrates its commitment to support the airport cargo community and to foster the competitiveness and further growth of Luxembourg as a European multimodal logistics hub. Nallian has been selected because their solution demonstrates their core competence in cargo communities, using best practice processes frameworks, and enables for integration with other cargo communities.”
Jean Verheyen, CEO of Nallian adds: “We are proud to have been selected by lux-Airport, with whom we share a common vision on the importance and power of digitisation and data sharing for air cargo. We are excited to help them realise their ambition to further develop the competitiveness of the airport and the logistics sector in Luxembourg as a whole.”
