The FAIR@Link portal has gone live at Hamburg Airport Cargo Center after a six-month test phase.
With the platform, which was developed by Dakosy, forwarders can book time slots for deliveries meaning shorter waiting and handling times, greater transparency and improved documentation for handling agents.
The system can prepare export customs declarations and automatically submit the electronic forms to customs upon entry to the Hamburg Airport Customs Office geofence area.
Alexander Muller, head of cargo at Hamburg Airport says, “The new platform is an important step into the digital future for us. With FAIR@Link, we can significantly improve handling processes and manage the increasing volume of traffic on the ground more efficiently. At the same time, we increase sustainability and promote environmentally compatible growth for the location.”
Forwarders Cross Freight, Delta-Stallion, a.hartrodt and Sable participated in the pilot, along with handling agents LUG and Swissport, as well as the Hamburg Airport Customs Office and the Hamburg Forwarding Agents Association.
Ulrich Wrage, CEO of Dakosy is pleased to support digitalization in Hamburg, saying: “Through connectivity and intelligent process support, FAIR@Link can optimise the physical processes between companies and achieve significantly faster and more transparent processing. In addition, the platform promotes ecological concerns, as optimised traffic management and reduced check-in and waiting times lead to CO2 savings. And it saves paper, too.”
