Siemens Postal, Parcel & Airport Logistics has received a major order to implement a cutting-edge, cloud-based software platform for dnata’s cargo operations in Dubai.

The appointment system will allow all land transport processes up to the hub’s dock side to be handled digitally. Benefits to dnata will include significantly increased transparency and a seamless, IT-based co-operation with freight forwarders, agents and airlines. The platform is based on the AX4 software of the SPPAL subsidiary Axit.

At the end of last year dnata contracted SPPAL to upgrade the automation inside the terminal with its highly sophisticated Cargo Compact software. Together, the two customer-oriented solutions will allow for the establishment of further integrated processes, both at front of house and inside the airport terminal.

"We bring the real world of logistics and the digital transformation together," said Michael Reichle, CEO of Siemens Postal, Parcel & Airport Logistics. "In Dubai we have already successfully completed a large number of airport projects." For example, Siemens has built and expanded the baggage and air cargo systems at both Dubai International airport and the new Al Maktoum International airport. In addition, the company is a long-term partner for the related services and software applications.

Apart from Dubai, Siemens customers include four of the top ten cargo airports around the world, which transport approximately 14m tonnes of goods each year.
