Africa Flight Services Kenya (AFS Kenya) deploys Luggage Logistics ULD Management Solution at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO) in Nairobi, Kenya.
Luggage Logistics’ innovative ULD Management Solution (UMS) will be used to manage all baggage containers, cargo containers and pallets for AFS Kenya customer carriers. All ULD movements in and out of Nairobi will be tracked, with station stock counts for each carrier updated automatically. Loans of ULDs to local agents or other carriers are digitally recorded and signed for. Damaged equipment is reported on handheld mobile devices with image capturing, to ensure safety is maintained at all times and only serviceable equipment is used by the operation.
Simone Livraghi, Ag. CEO and Director, GSE & RAMP Services for AFS Kenya said: “Luggage Logistics UMS brings automation and efficiency to our ground handling operation for ULD Management. AFS Kenya is investing in innovation and modern mobile solutions throughout our ground handling operation in Kenya, ensuring our customer carriers receive the best-in-class service. The introduction of UMS to our operation will further improve our productivity and performance in an area of the operation that is traditionally a manual and resource heavy process. We’ve worked with Luggage Logistics for over five years using their baggage management BRS solution and this is another great solution for our operation.”
Adam Dalby, CEO, Luggage Logistics added: “We are delighted to add UMS to our solution portfolio used by Africa Flight Services Kenya. ULD Management is a critical yet often overlooked aspect of an airline’s operation. Kenya produces and exports vast numbers of horticultural items such as cut flowers, fruit and other perishable, and airlines transport these time critical products in containers and on pallets. Ensuring ULD stock is accurately managed means airlines don’t lose out on potential cargo revenue opportunities. The solution will go fully live with AFS Kenya this month and we expect instant improvements that will benefit our ground handling customer and the carriers they manage.”
