BRUcloud, the cargo community cloud based-data sharing platform at Brussels airport, went live with its slot booking app on January 15, with seven companies.

Today, that number has more than doubled, with an eight extra companies starting to use the application in their live operations. The slot booking app eliminates one of the most recurring problems, that of the waiting and idle times at the facilities of the ground handlers.

The app co-ordinates the match between supply and demand of time slots, streamlines the pick-up and delivery of freight at the ground handlers and leads to a better capacity utilisation and elimination of peaks and idle times. The tool also makes it possible for the booker (for example, the forwarder) to request a single or recurrent time slot at a specific facility, via a central Web application for all ground handlers. Concurrently, the supplier (for example, a ground handler) can make time slots for different cargo types available via the Web interface or by a system-to-system link with its internal slot management system
