The cargo community at Vienna International Airport is embracing Nallian’s open data sharing platform to help reduce congestion and improve efficiency.
Vienna is developing an Airport City with the opening of the Pharma Handling Center and more projects underway, but says land availability is not endless so digital transformation and collaboration are the way to support future growth.
The Statistics app will allow the airport to better analyse and gain insights into cargo streams, and in future, more applications such as the Slot Booking app will be added to the Vienna CargoCloud.
In the first phase, the Vehicle Database application will be used to control access to the cargo grounds to reduce congestion and improve security.
The Vehicle Database will be integrated with the Automated Number Plate Recognition system, allowing companies at the cargo zone to register vehicles that are to be granted access to the area.
Nallian says the system will avoid vehicles idling on the grounds, improve security and provide better insights in the movement at the cargo area.
In the future, the application will be integrated with the Slot Booking application, so access can be granted automatically in view of registered time slots.
The Statistics app will provide the airport with more insights into cargo streams with information including MAWB, flight times and cargo types, allowing the airport to make a more in-depth analysis of cargo flows and take informed decisions including flight routes to develop, and sales and marketing.
Peter De Leeuw, head of landside and real estate development and cargo development at Vienna International Airport says the airport will grow through digitisation, and Nallian is the right partner.
He says: “It integrates seamlessly with our existing systems and allows us to easily add more applications as we move forward – and even to build our own apps upon the platform.”
Jean Verheyen, CEO of Nallian says the company is “thrilled” to support Vienna Airport’s digital transformation, saying: “Our Nallian for Air Cargo suite is designed by and for such visionary air cargo professionals, with the objective of optimising real-world situations leveraging existing data and processes.”
