Swissport has signed a proof-of-concept agreement with Speedcargo to increase cargo capacity in warehouses and on flights.
Its AI solutions Cargo Eye and Cargo Mind, will support Swissport's digitisation drive and improve overall logistics efficiency.
Swissport will launch proof-of-concept trials of the Cargo Eye sizing system and the AI-powered Cargo Mind software solution at its Johannesburg and Tel Aviv air cargo warehouses. The Speedcargo solutions enable full 3D scanning at the time of acceptance of a shipment and ensure immediate and optimised planning and utilisation of the available cargo space, while considering applicable regulations and other constraints.
Dirk Goovaerts, Head of Middle East & Africa and Global Cargo Chair says: "I am confident that the implementation of Cargo Eye and Cargo Mind will support the digital transformation of our cargo operations. With this technology, we expect to optimise cargo loads on our customers' flights and ULD containers by 5%, representing a significant increase in revenue for both the airline and the handler."
If the proof of concept confirms that these digital solutions can increase process efficiency, productivity and revenue, Swissport plans to integrate this way of working in its warehouses across the globe.
