Ground Handling is central to a successful Air Cargo business and SmartKargo understands that. SmartKargo’s integrated approach to operations links workflow and data from pickup to delivery and makes e-freight possible and practical. Full compliance with IATA Cargo-IMP messaging and Cargo-XML standards makes it easy to communicate with all stakeholders.
