DAKOSY participates at the World Cargo Symposium in Singapore
DAKOSY press release (March 2019)
DAKOSY is participating for the first time at this year's World Cargo Symposium, which is being organised for the 13th time by the International Air Transport Association (IATA). In Singapore, the software service provider for transport and logistics will present INFr8, the shipping portal for air freight developed by DAKOSY in close cooperation with FRAPORT. INFr8 is a platform that is specially tailored to the air cargo supply chain and simplifies the handling of dangerous goods through digital support.
“The platform is currently in pilot operation at Frankfurt Airport. However, we are internationally oriented and not tied to specific locations. Singapore, in particular, is one of the most important logistics hubs in the Asia-Pacific region. A platform like INFr8 is of course a good support,” says Simon Linder, Sales Manager at DAKOSY. At the World Cargo Symposium on March 13, Simon Linder will present the functions and advantages of digital processing of dangerous and regular cargo.
Within the Dangerous Goods Track he will participate in the panel discussion “eDGD–What is the Value and What’s the Way Forward?”. In terms of content, it will deal with the digital approach of IATA's Dangerous Goods Declaration (DGD). Philipp Billion of Lufthansa Cargo will also be speaking on the panel. The company is one of the pilot partners of INFr8.
Since July 2018, INFr8 has been in pilot operation at Frankfurt Airport and is already being used by senders, forwarders, airlines and handling agents. Anke Gießen, Chief Operations Officer of Fraport AG, was also confident about the launch of the shipping portal: “The platform integrates for the first time the shipper into the digital information chain of classic air freight. We expect this to result in shorter check-in times for dangerous goods and thus significantly accelerated handling times”.
