Nallian helps Athens go digital with Cargo Cloud

Athens International Airport will use Nallian’s Cargo Cloud solution to optimise operations in its cargo area.

The partnership will start in July, initially using Truck Visit Management to coordinate freight pickups and drop-offs between cargo handlers, freight forwarders and trucking companies for a 12-month period.

It consists of a digital front desk and slot booking system which allows cargo stakeholders to make landside dock capacity available for booking and maximise usage while facilitating resource planning and eliminating waiting times at the gates.

Alexios Sioris, Ground Handling and Cargo Development Manager at Athens airport, says, “Predictable and efficient processes involving digital solutions empower our cargo community with effective tools towards a sustainable operation. The Truck Visit Management solution is expected to eliminate congestion and wait times at our cargo terminals and improve effectiveness, by complementing the existing systems of the air cargo stakeholders.”

Jean Verheyen, CEO of Nallian, adds, “Our Cargo Cloud, which is used by airports big and small in Europe, Asia and the US, allows a step by step digitalisation approach. We are proud to support Athens International Airport on their digital journey, starting with the optimisation of their landside management process in the context of the STARGATE (SusTainable AiRports, the Green heArT of Europe) initiative.”
