Miami airport launches "flight tracker" website
The ITJ was on the spot last week (wk 44), when Miami airport publicly unveiled its "MIA cargo flight tracker" – the USA’s first web-based cargo flight information display system. It allows cargo shippers, freight forwarders, customs brokers and logistics providers to easily view real-time cargo flight information on their mobile devices while on the go.
The announcement, made during the Air Cargo Americas conference and exhibition, comes just as the busy winter shipping season is about to begin.
Miami-Dade aviation department director, Emilio T. Gonzalez, and Florida Customs Brokers & Forwarders Association’s EVP, Barbara Pimentel, hosted a live demonstration for exhibition attendees on a large-screen monitor. (ah)
