Digital technology has been penetrating the aviation sector for almost three decades now with the first passenger e-ticket issued over 20 years ago. Today´s passenger journey is fully digitized, traceable and transparent. However, for some mysterious reason, air cargo handling has remained a cumbersome, paper-driven business few dared or wanted to enter. This, in spite of the fact that air cargo handling, thanks to its ability to deliver life critical and high-quality products quickly and safely, is an important global trade and e-commerce facilitator which accounts for 35% of world trade value.
So why has air cargo been so slow in catching up on digital innovation and still isn’t handled nearly as smoothly as passengers? Why do shippers and consignees have little visibility on the movement and state of their shipment? Why do cargo ground handlers operate using multiple software systems which cause them delays and extra costs?
Born in the cargo handling terminal, Qstep helps to tackle these and many other challenges. From e-AWB to new data sharing standards – The Qstep platform allows cargo ground handlers to benefit from the latest technological solutions and ensures the new technology runs smoothly and safely in the background of the handler ́s operational and business processes. We are the preferred choice for ground handlers not only due to our technological edge and know-how but because Qstep understands the essence of every business detail and operational flow.
