Kale Info Solutions is to implement its Airport Cargo Community System (ACCS) at Vancouver International Airport (YVR), Canada, to support growing cargo throughput.
A proof of concept of Kale’s ACCS will take place ahead of full implementation of the solution, with the aim of improving efficiency for all stakeholders, streamlining cargo flows, and addressing airport truck congestion challenges, which continue to affect many North American airports as cargo volumes swell.
YVR is investing in its cargo operations to ensure it can continue to meet growing demand while identifying new solutions that will increase efficiencies with trucking and transportation, especially during peak hours.
“As Canada’s second busiest airport, YVR is focused on enhancing our cargo operation and working with our airline and freight forwarding partners to meet our shared goals for the safe, reliable, and efficient movement of goods, all while advancing our climate commitments,” said Jason Tse, Manager, Commercial Leasing – Cargo, Vancouver International Airport.
“Technology and digitization are key aspects of how we will achieve success, and we look forward to working with Kale Info Solutions and applying its innovative Cargo Community System at YVR for the benefit of our partners, our community, and the economy that supports it.”
Kale’s system will enable advance shipment notifications to be sent from shippers, agents, and truckers to cargo handlers and airlines at the airport, bringing real-time updates and transparency on estimated arrival times, as well as details on actual cargo on board, facilitating communication between all stakeholders concerned.
