MIA launches Cargo Flight Tracker website

On November 2, during the Air Cargo Americas & SeaCargo Americas 2017 conference and exhibition, event host Miami International Airport publicly unveiled its MIA Cargo Flight Tracker – the first web-based cargo flight information display system in the U.S. that allows cargo shippers, freight forwarders, customs brokers and logistics providers to easily view real-time cargo flight information on their mobile devices while on the go. Previously, cargo flight data was only available by contacting or researching individual airlines. Now, cargo handlers have MlA’s minute-by-minute schedule of daily cargo flights in the palm of their hands – saving valuable time and fuel costs when planning freight pickups and deliveries.

 

The announcement comes just as the busy winter shipping season is about to begin. Miami-Dade Aviation Department (MDAD) Director Emilio T. González and Florida Customs Brokers & Forwarders Association Executive Vice President Barbara Pimentel, MDAD officials hosted a live demonstration for exhibition attendees on a large-screen monitor. As the busiest U.S. airport for international freight, MIA’s cargo activity generates a local workforce of nearly 8,000 freight forwarders and couriers, and is the primary supporter of 425,344 cargo-related jobs in the Florida economy.

“The MIA Cargo Flight Tracker is the latest example of how we are leveraging technology to streamline and optimize our cargo operations,” said Director González. “Thanks to this new tool, our local cargo industry can spend less time and money waiting in traffic for cargo shipments, because now they have real-time flight information at their fingertips.”
