May 19, 2015: Air France KLM Martinair Cargo has joined forces with Rhenus and Cargonaut to realise the successful launch of e-Fast Delivery, a unique concept to simplify the cargo delivery process.
Since 13 May, truck drivers have been able to deliver air cargo at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol directly to designated loading docks without first stopping at the documentation desk. The new eLink system sends an automatic message to the Warehouse Management System. The handler then checks that:
- the shipment is Ready for Carriage (RFC);
- the shipment is secure;
- the shipment is paperless.
Upon arrival at the KLM Cargo area, the drivers scan their ACN (recognized road haulier) card and, if it meets all three conditions, they can drive straight to the loading dock.
This innovative concept is just one of the e-Freight developments to which Air France KLM Martiniar Cargo is strongly dedicated. e-Freight aims to replace paper documents with electronic alternatives in the airfreight industry.
By switching to e-Freight, the delivery process for shipment is arranged more efficiently and is less error-prone. It saves time and money, both for the customers and the airline.
Air France KLM Martinair Cargo is proud to have launched this initiative together with their partners Rhenus and Cargonaut.
"Investing in the future. This project was made possible thanks to a contribution from the European Regional Development Fund of the European Union."
