Noble is committed to providing excellent service to its established customer base and to supporting its drivers.

Kale Info Solutions To Partner With Vancouver International Airport On Digital Transformation Of Cargo

The North American airport will adopt Kale’s Cargo Community System to make cargo operations more efficient and transparent, and to support its objective towards a more sustainable airport environment

Kale Info Solutions, the US subsidiary of Kale Logistics Solutions, is to implement its Airport Cargo Community System (ACCS) at Vancouver International Airport (YVR), Canada, to support growing cargo throughput.

A proof of concept of Kale’s ACCS will take place ahead of full implementation of the solution, with the aim of improving efficiency for all stakeholders, streamlining cargo flows, and addressing airport truck congestion challenges, which continue to affect many North American airports as cargo volumes swell.

YVR is investing in its cargo operations to ensure it can continue to meet growing demand while identifying new solutions that will increase efficiencies with trucking and transportation, especially during peak hours.

“As Canada’s second busiest airport, YVR is focused on enhancing our cargo operation and working with our airline and freight forwarding partners to meet our shared goals for the safe, reliable, and efficient movement of goods, all while advancing our climate commitments,” said Jason Tse, Manager, Commercial Leasing – Cargo, Vancouver International Airport.

“Technology and digitization are key aspects of how we will achieve success, and we look forward to working with Kale Info Solutions and applying its innovative Cargo Community System at YVR for the benefit of our partners, our community, and the economy that supports it.”

Kale’s system will enable advance shipment notifications to be sent from shippers, agents, and truckers to cargo handlers and airlines at the airport, bringing real-time updates and transparency on estimated arrival times, as well as details on actual cargo on board, facilitating communication between all stakeholders concerned.

Advance truck slot booking capabilities will enable trucking companies and ground handlers to coordinate landside freight movements, reducing congestion and pollution by eliminating waiting times and enabling ground handling companies and airlines to process trucks efficiently and cost effectively.

Kale’s mobile app, meanwhile, allows slots to be booked dynamically and adjusted automatically, in line with peaks and troughs in truck arrivals at the airport, further reducing congestion on roads and within the airport.

“This project is testament to the efficacy of our solutions and we look forward to helping the Vancouver Airport Authority and other airports in North America to overcome the challenge of truck congestion in the region,” said Amar More, President, Kale Info Solutions.

“Our ACCS brings tremendous benefits in meeting environmental sustainability objectives with a major reduction of paperwork, carbon emissions and pollution, and creates a vibrant stakeholder digital eco-system around the airport.”

Earlier this year, Kale successfully piloted the truck slot and dock management module of its Airport Cargo Community System with Worldwide Flight Services at John F Kennedy Airport, New York, USA, bringing reductions in truck wait times of up to 66 percent for exports and 48 percent for imports.
