Recent Developments in Supply Chain and Technology

Traxon Europe, the international e-communications provider to the airfreight industry, is sponsoring the e-freight, e-customs and e-AWB program tracks at IATA's World Cargo Symposium 2011 in Istanbul (Turkey). The company is also using the event to form closer ties with its Turkish customers.

Frankfurt on Main, February, 2011 – On March 9th Felix Keck, Managing Director, Traxon Europe, will be welcoming the participants in the e-freight track of the upcoming World Cargo Symposium 2011 (8 – 10 March). In the afternoon he will chair the discussions focusing on e-customs and e-AWB. The aim of all three program tracks is to highlight the opportunities offered by a faster roll-out of e-freight, e-customs and e-AWB and to discuss how impediments can be overcome by shippers, forwarders, airlines, and the IT industry. The fifth annual IATA conference has the theme ‘Air cargo – Connecting the world’.

The paperless handling of airfreight has been discussed in the industry for many years. However, progress has been slow. Too slow, according to Felix Keck, Managing Director of Traxon Europe. “Especially small and medium sized forwarders are still very hesitant. We must convince them that the benefits are greater than the costs,“ says Felix Keck. “Traxon Europe has developed many innovative applications that make e-freight, e-customs and e-AWB easy to handle by all links of the air cargo supply chain. The e-communication solutions help companies to successfully take the paper out of the air cargo supply chain and replace it with cheaper, more accurate and more reliable electronic messaging. Traxon Europe offers standard products and customized solutions to enable every type of company, from the small regional players to the large multi nationals, who all have different IT systems in place to make the change to paperless airfreight handling. Traxon Europe is thus supporting events such as the WCS 2011 aimed at raising the profile of e-freight, e-customs and e-AWB in the market and speeding up market penetration.“

TRAXON Europe is showcasing a range of applications at its booth in the Hilton Hotel in Istanbul. Amongst them will be eCargo Pouch®, a central document and message management system, particularly suitable for air cargo handling by SME companies and their agents. The product could play a pivotal role in the whole e-freight process chain.

A further highlight will be the new TRAXON Air Waybill Data Capture, a web-based, application for airlines and forwarders to be integrated into their own websites. The product is designed to help speed up the implementation of 100% e-AWB policies.
As more and more countries are introducing electronic advance cargo information the Traxon Air Cargo Customs portfolio is sure to attract a lot of attention. TRAXON ACC Europe ICS has certainly been a success story in recent months with some 20 airlines using the product in the meantime.

Traxon Europe will also use the opportunity offered by the conference being held in Istanbul to strengthen ties with its Turkish partner and local customers.
