FREIGHT FORWARDER INSERT
Milan Malpensa Cargo has long been certified by IATA as a "Live" Airport for the purposes of the E-Freight project. For many destinations, it is possible to send "paperless" shipments and new "trade lanes" will be added gradually in the future thanks to the collaboration of the airlines, freight forwarders, airport handlers and customs authorities at the airport.
The Malpensa Smart City digital ecosystem of goods consists of a network of ICT based services that allows all the players in the import-export chain to use, integrate and to share information of respective interest in the treatment cycle of air cargo arriving and departing at Malpensa airport.
The services available will allow you to optimize the time of acceptance and unloading of goods, to make the processes and methods of managing shipments more efficient and to know the stages of the load handling process, transforming the airport's freight yard into a real one and its "Smart City" aligned with the information and communication standards of the most advanced and important European Cargo airports.
The Malpensa Smart City of Goods system received an important recognition from SMAU: the National Smart Communities Award. The award, now in its fourth national edition, is a recognition dedicated to the best Smart City development projects through a selection of the most innovative success stories from all over Italy.
The "Malpensa Smart City of Goods" ecosystem has the objective of promoting information exchanges between the various players in the supply chain, offering them services which, impacting as little as possible on the information systems used by each of them for their own commercial purposes and administrative:
FREIGHT FORWARDER INSERT
Air safety info
MALPENSA GROUND HANDLER
Collects all data relating to the goods
He can be notified of the arrival of the truck upon entering Cargo City
THE AUTO TRANSPORTER CHECKS
Journey times to reach MXP
Book unload time
Carry out administrative operations
The system therefore brings real benefits for all the other players in the Cargo chain (Freight Agents, Ground Handler, Carrier, Customs, etc.) as it allows you to reduce the possibility of errors in data transfer, to make loading and unloading operations more efficient at the airport, to know in real time a series of information relating to the state of treatment of the goods and their availability. All by applying the conventions and standards defined by IATA in the context of Cargo 2000.
The information and services offered are accessible, for all users who join the ecosystem, through the development on their information systems of a simple interface that enables them to send and / or consult data, acquire information to be used in their business process, consult information services and news of public interest, airport weather conditions, flight timetables, travel times of the road.
The platform works with the logic of the digital "ecosystem" in which some subjects insert data, others complete them with further information and make them available to interested users.
