Airfreight industry’s digitalisation journey has been a long and challenging one: Amar More

Calling the digitalisation journey of the airfreight industry a long and challenging one, Amar More, CEO, Kale Logistics Solutions, says, “The e-freight concept was initially launched by IATA in 2006 as part of the StB (simplifying the business) programme and became an industry-wide initiative. With more than 30 paper documents being handled for each shipment, the goal established 14 years ago by the e-freight programme was to cut delivery cycle times by 24 hours, accelerate and enhance track and trace processes and eliminate nearly 8,000 tonnes of paper documents annually – the equivalent of 80 Boeing 747 freighters filled with paper.
