New Goa Airport's cargo ops go fully digital with Kale Logistics
The newly opened airport rolled out Kale’s cargo management system to support sustainable operations as it targets the Indian cargo hub status
Kale Logistics Solutions (Kale) has gone live with its state-of-the-art cargo management system, GALAXY, at GMR Goa Air Cargo (GGAC), completing the implementation of 100 percent digital domestic cargo operations at the new Goa airport.
Kale’s web-based solution, GALAXY, is enabling end-to-end digital processing for all domestic outbound cargo at GGAC, from acceptance to loading and departure, as well as for domestic inbound cargo from flight arrival and flight check through to cargo delivery at the warehouse.
GMR Goa International Airport Limited (GGIAL), a subsidiary of GMR Airports Limited (GAL), was inaugurated in December 2022 by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and the domestic air cargo operations went live from an interim facility at the airport with Kale’s solution in January.
“GMR Goa Air Cargo has set a new record, going digital from the start button,” said Vineet Malhotra, Co-Founder, and Director, Kale Logistics Solutions. “Our longstanding strategic partnership with GMR Cargo and deep understanding of their business, challenges, and market dynamics positions Kale well to help them meet higher customer expectations. Supported by our fully digital solution, we are confident that GGAC will exceed its cargo handling estimates, and look forward to supporting its commitment to sustainable operations.”
The GALAXY cargo management system is used by several hub airports and cargo terminals all over the world and is currently operating at more than 100 air cargo stations globally. The solution also covers processing for transshipment and direct delivery, as well as for inbound and outbound cargo.
The newly launched Goa International Airport is poised to become a hub for cargo movement alongside Mumbai and Bengaluru in Western India.
Kale recently partnered with Dagang Net Technologies to introduce its Airport Cargo Community System platform at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA), connecting airport stakeholders on a digital platform for the first time in Malaysia.
