Amsterdam Airport Schiphol’s information platform, Cargonaut, is to receive an investment of two million euros ($2.2 million) to modernise the system.
Half the money will come from a Top Sector Logistics grant, with the remainder provided by Dutch Customs, Logius, Air Cargo Netherlands, Schiphol Group and Cargonaut. The two million euros will be invested in the next two years to renew the community information platform and applications. Cargonaut says large-scale information sharing is among the challenges that lie ahead.
Cargonaut chief executive officer, Nanne Onland says: “The world around us is changing at high speed, and the strong and innovative position of Schiphol can no longer be taken for granted.”
“Strong cooperation, well-managed processes and maximum support from the state-of-the-art IT resources are the keys to increase the competitiveness of Schiphol, and therefore of all stakeholders, including the government.”
Onland adds: “All parties at Schiphol will reap the fruits. With the help of a renewed Schiphol Community information platform, better and faster processes will be supported with modern tools, and can also be further developed towards the creation of new ‘Green Fast Lanes’.”
