As of today, Brussels airport, Air Cargo Belgium and the entire BRUcargo community will be taking a giant leap in the further digitisation of cargo processes.

Leveraging the pioneering work with BRUCloud in past years, on June 1 the Digital Green Lane for digitising the landside pick-up and delivery process will be fully implemented by 12 ground handling agents and freight forwarders, that combined represent 75% of the freight volumes at Brussels airport.

The well-known BRUcloud data sharing platform, hosted by partner Nallian, that currently counts 12 different applications all digitising a specific aspect of the air cargo process, will be taken to the next level. Via a Memorandum of Understanding, eight freight forwarders and four ground handling agents have agreed on the roll-out of the Digital Green Lane. These companies are APA, BDP International, DHL Global Forwarding, DSV, Expeditors, Geodis, Kuehne + Nagel, Nippon Express, Aviapartner, dnata, Swissport and WFS.

The Digital Green Lane is a uniform standardised pick-up and delivery process between freight forwarders and ground handling agents, supported by the BRUcloud Landside Management applications. This means that all freight is being picked up or dropped off at a registered time slot, all freight information is shared digitally throughout the process and all actions during the pick-up and drop off process are registered by the driver on a mobile device.
