Celebi Delhi Cargo Terminal Management India is a joint venture between Delhi International Airport (DIAL) and Celebi Ground Handling Turkey which along with domestic operations also provides cargo handling and warehousing services to approximately fifty international schedule carriers. Celebi Delhi is the largest operations in Air Cargo for Celebi worldwide. In order to keep pace with the ever-increasing domestic cargo demands, Celebi Delhi has partnered with Kale Logistics Solutions to automate their air cargo and terminal operations.
The air cargo industry has reached a crucial point where a fast-track approach to digitalization is required to keep pace with competitive modes of transport. It is undergoing a tremendous transformation – moving from legacy systems to agile technologies in order to streamline its operations, reduce costs and optimize efficiencies.
Ramesh Mamidala, CEO of Celebi Delhi Cargo Terminal Management said, “Modern day freight challenges need technology to enable innovative practices to move businesses forward. With our domestic operations going live on Galaxy, we look forward to greater automation of our operational processes and getting quick and comprehensive information on consignment and cargo tracking. This significant development will help to speed up shipment times, improve efficiency and reduce costs.”
Being the capital of the country, Delhi has maximum number of flight operations and Celebi - Delhi operates one of the largest volume of domestic cargo movement out of Delhi airport. Topographically, Delhi is surrounded by many states and with a boom in e-commerce business, there is additional domestic freight movement which makes Delhi a top e-commerce hub of India.
Speaking more on this scenario, Mamidala added, “Celebi - Delhi’s current domestic handling system was challenged by anincreased load of cargo and connectivity issues. Hence we decided to move forward with the latest technology solution to cater to this demand. Kale’s Galaxy is the perfect solution, which, with minor customizations fulfilled all our requirements. We would soon be going live on our international operations”.
Commenting on the collaboration, Amar More, CEO, Kale Logistics Solutions said, “We are delighted to partner with Celebi and are extremely confident that our system will address all their concerns and realise the benefits of Galaxy in near future.
