FRA-OS/ Import

As a building block of FAIR@Link, FRA-OS/ Import speeds up, standardizes and simplifies customs and import processes at Frankfurt Airport.

Together with investor Fraport, the Forwarding and Logistics Association Hessen-Rheinland-Pfalz (SLV), the Association of Air Cargo Handlers Germany (VACAD) and the customs office responsible for freight at Frankfurt Airport, DAKOSY has implemented this project as the platform operator for Frankfurt Airport. FRA /OS will further advance digitalization in the cargo business and showcase Frankfurt Airport's role as Europe's leading cargo hub. Fra-OS builds on the FAIR@Link communication platform, which will remain the central communication platform at the location. However, FRA-OS expands this to include important site-specific topics and cross-sectional functions for air freight in Frankfurt.

Use encompasses the entire Frankfurt Airport

Each individual shipment must be presented to customs, a time-consuming and labor-intensive process. Often, not all shipment information is readily available. In addition, it is essential for customs to have an overview of the precise location of each shipment and to know when it will arrive for presentation.

The requirements from the EU Customs Code for the import of consolidated shipments are challenging.

  • ICS 1: Provision of the Entry Summary Declaration (ESumA or ENS) at least 4 hours before landing for risk assessment by customs
  • 1:1 referencing (eSumA:SumA): Presentation at the HAWB level by the cargo handling agent or by the carrier (which is now also possible)
  • Proof of the current location and immediate presentation of the cargo after landing

Time accurate status information for customs

Max Philipp Conrady, Head of Site Development Cargo

"FRA-OS is the central tool for meeting customs requirements and making existing processes for the import of goods more efficient. With this unique feature, we offer our hub partners a whole new level of transparency for their shipments."
