Etihad Cargo, the cargo and logistics arm of the Etihad Aviation Group, is set to streamline regulatory compliance screening processes for shipments via a new partnership with E2open, a provider of intelligent supply chain solutions.

Scheduled to be fully operational by November, the E2open application implementation will enable Etihad Cargo to automate cargo screening against global regulations and sanctions leveraging E2open’s global trade content. The automated solution will simultaneously improve efficiency, streamline workflows, minimise the risk of fines and penalties and reduce the manual time associated with screening cargo.

“Aside from being labour intensive, navigating the constantly changing regulations and export/import requirements often requires co-ordination across multiple parties and compliance checks,” said Andre Blech, Head of Operations and Delivery at Etihad Cargo. “Our partnership with E2open, which shares our vision for a truly digital logistics supply chain, increases Etihad Cargo’s service quality to customers, who benefit from the increased efficiency of real time verification.”
