Ground Handling Agents
SmartKargo knows that ground handling is central to a successful cargo business. 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. U.S. Customs and Border Protection has certified SmartKargo for Automated Manifest System (AMS) communication, and was one of the first providers to be certified with the latest Automated Commercial Environment (ACE).
SmartKargo handles tasks seamlessly from the moment a shipper delivers cargo to the export warehouse. Check-in, acceptance, build-up, load optimization, and runner management are all standard features. SmartKargo supports GHAs operating at a single location for a single airline as well as large operations with multiple locations and airlines.
SmartKargo manages arrivals and deliveries with the industry’s easiest user interface. Full messaging compliance eliminates the need for duplicate data entry. Automated time stamps facilitate performance measurement and service levels, thus improving customer satisfaction. It’s easy to set demurrage or applicable warehousing charges, and to ensure collections before delivery, to increase revenue and transparency.
