and efficient execution of inspections and Customs- related processes. Today, other cargo hubs that

Nallian is currently working with include Brussels Airport (with BRUcloud), London Heathrow, Liege, Luxembourg, Vienna and a major airport in Asia (whose name Driesen won’t disclose). Belgium-headquartered Dallian recently opened

Driesen advises. “Our platform and ecosystem of collaborative ecosystem of applications are continuously enriched, fuelled by the input from the communities we are working with, who drive the digital roadmap together with us.” Just last year (2020), for

example, Dallian extended its Landside Management Suite with features such as dynamic slot booking, which enables trucking companies who offer

the logistical complexity of shipping Covid-19 vaccines. “Having operational

visibility, transparency and efficiency throughout the cargo chain has never been more important,” he suggests, but adds that this is exactly what Nallian’s Cargo Cloud enables. The need to protect

an Asia-Pacific office in Singapore, about which Verheyen comments: “The fast-growing Asia-Pacific air cargo market

is presenting

a wealth of opportunities for Nallian. This new office will help us to accelerate our coverage of the region, and work even more closely with our local clients.” Despite Nallian’s ongoing success, it is not complacent,

road feeder services (RFS) or operate far from the cargo hub in question to also gain the benefits of slot booking. As for the ongoing effect of

the Covid-19 crisis on Nallian and such technologies, Driesen believes that the pandemic has further increased attention on the importance and value of air cargo. But the sector is facing one of the biggest challenges

consequential need to limit physical touch points makes the need for such solutions as Nallian’s apparent, he considers. This is a serious challenge as cargo operations are traditionally paper-based and involve many touch points such as crowded rooms where truckers wait to be assigned to a gate, registrations at a front desk, handover of paperwork and so on. “By digitising the entire flow

process - covering

landside pick-up or delivery processes, through slot booking and assigning digital release rights to driver registration, execution of inspection and acceptance checks - Nallian’s collaborative apps eliminate these physical touch points and paperwork as everything is registered and shared in a digital way,” Driesen points out.
