Panel Introduction

In the aviation industry, it is common to sell passenger tickets and additional services online for many years, but how about air cargo? Digital Air Cargo (DAC) has grown at an incredible pace during the last few years and brought new opportunities and business models, but did it also fully arrive in day-to-day business at all stakeholders? What can be done today without any paper documents and fully digital and where is it still necessary to stick to the very old-fashioned way of collecting papers and stamping documents? Our panel will explore on different areas of the air cargo industry like pricing, real-time visibility, communication between the stakeholders, documentation, and (e)AWBs and customs processes. Has air cargo truly gone digital? We provide a reality check - where do we stand today and what is the outlook in the new future?
