More transparency and security for air cargo
In the area of air cargo logistics, customer requirements in terms of monitoring and track-and-trace functions continue to grow. This presents air cargo companies with a number of challenges.
Cargo processes need to become faster and more transparent yet also more secure. On the one hand, the key objectives are theft protection, prevention of delays or temporary loss of consignments and compliance with increasingly strict international security measures.
On the other hand, the logistics processes themselves are subject to continuous optimisation with the aim of improving quality. Systems that allow up-to-the minute monitoring of the cargo and a quick response in the case of any deviation from the planned schedule or loss of the cargo are a central aspect of this process. After all, in the highly competitive air cargo market, transport delays can incur high costs. Transportation chains are finely tuned mechanisms and most flows of goods are extremely time sensitive. It is essential to comply with the schedules of just-in-time concepts and avoid the costs of searching for lost items or penalties for non-performance. The continuing trend of reducing costs in logistics processes requires solutions for monitoring cargo that will function anywhere in the world but do not demand additional and expensive infrastructure. This solution has a name: Socraflite.
Socraflite has been specifically developed to meet the professional needs of air cargo companies, air-lines and container leasing companies.
