Atlanta to gain from Kale Logistics

Comment on this article

Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International airport has embarked on the journey of creating North America’s First New Generation Air Cargo Community System in partnership with Kale Logistics Solutions.

Kale’s Airport Cargo Community System (ACS) is a digital collaborative platform to help all stakeholders to electronically communicate within themselves and with other stakeholders like Customs, shippers, airlines, trucking companies, customs brokers, freight forwarders and cargo handlers. It facilitates the movement of goods and information at the airport and aids in digital interactions, in conformance to initiatives around e-freight, e-AWB, PLACI and e-CSD.

Air cargo is a critical economic generator at Hartsfield-Jackson, creating more than 27,000 jobs in Georgia and triggering more than US$6.7m in revenue for the city. In addition, with its capital improvement plan ATLNext, a 20 year blueprint for growth, the airport is poised to modernise its Terminal, expand its cargo operations and add up to 1m square feet of warehouse space. Whilst the airport is developing the physical infrastructure, ATL is now focusing on creating the new generation digital infrastructure as well

Emphasising the collaboration, Amar More, Director and CEO, Kale Logistics Solutions, said: “We are delighted to partner with Atlanta airport and the air freight community in Atlanta, in this unique initiative on their path towards digitalisation."
