Dutch RFS platform eases pandemic pressures
Since last year's launch of the "Trucking CDM" platform developed by the Amsterdam-based Cargo IT software provider Cargohub, several leading operators have been successfully testing the system.
Under added pressure since the pandemic, cargo handlers Dnata and Menzies World Cargo have fully committed their operations at Schiphol airport to the experimental pilot of the platform.
It communicates pick up notifications to road feeder operators, allowing all parties to plan efficient trucking itineraries.
The CDM platform also sends automatic load advice’s electronically to loading and unloading stations. This not only eliminates the considerable volume of paperwork and emails, but saves time, money and unnecessary emissions from waiting vehicles as a result of unpredictable arrivals of trucks. (ah)
