DNATA BECOMES A FULL MEMBER OF CARGO IQ


The ground handling company has expanded its scope to include global operations

Geneva, Switzerland, Wednesday 19th February 2020 – Global air services provider dnata has joined Cargo iQ as a full member to benefit from the extensive knowledge and expertise that membership brings.

The Dubai-headquartered ground handler’s stations in the UK and the Netherlands were previously members on an individual basis.

dnata’s global network spans 35 countries and 88 airport ground handling and cargo stations, who will all now reap the rewards of Cargo iQ membership.

“The dnata network has grown up fast over last few years,” said Guillaume Crozier, Divisional Vice President of Operations and Product Development, dnata.

“As we extend our network, we strive to maintain a high level of performance in all aspects, making sure all our stations match with global quality and performance standards.

“The Cargo iQ framework is well established within the air cargo industry and it makes sense for dnata and our customers to maintain actively our level of compliance as well as participate in the discussion to ensure the right approach.

“Our industry needs to evolve and keep innovating to ensure value for money at all levels of the supply chain. Cargo iQ fosters a culture of continuous improvement.”

Cargo iQ’s membership is made up of stakeholders from across the air cargo supply chain and every member’s cargo flows are monitored across the supply chain.

dnata wants to play its part in further improving ground handling milestones and further support the continuous improvement loop.

“We want to support our industry standards enhancement aiming for sustainable development,” said Crozier.

“Measuring the same things in the same manner will help us to have more data and performance-driven relationships with stakeholders’ versus perception based.”

Crozier also said dnata is looking to go even deeper into its implementation and monitoring processes and wants to actively participate in Cargo iQ group discussions.

“It is great to have the whole organisation of dnata onboard as a full member, as they are a true global ground handling player and this will add a lot of value and further enhance Cargo iQ,” said Ariaen Zimmerman, Executive Director, Cargo iQ.

“We look forward to dnata’s increased contributions to our initiatives that we run to help improve the movement of air cargo across the supply chain.”

Cargo iQ will organise a press conference around its upcoming AGM where it will have updates on its program and launch various new initiatives at the International Air Transport Association (IATA)’s World Cargo Symposium, Istanbul, Turkey on 11th March.

Our Vision

The objective of SESAR is to modernise European ATM by defining, developing and delivering new or improved technologies and procedures (SESAR Solutions).

SESAR’s vision builds on the notion of trajectory-based operations’ and relies on the provision of air navigation services (ANS) in support of the execution of the business or mission trajectory — meaning that aircraft can fly their preferred trajectories without being constrained by airspace configurations.

SESAR Deployment Manager

The SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) function is defined by the Article 9 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) N°409/2013. Under the oversight of the European Commission, the SDM function consists of the synchronisation and the coordination of the deployment of the Common Projects. A Common Project is a Commission Implementing Regulation which mandates the implementation of the most essential operational changes in the European ATM Master Plan by the Member States of the European Union and their operational stakeholders. The first Common Project is known as the Pilot Common Project (PCP) and is defined by the Regulation (EU) N°716/2014. The SDM synchronises and coordinates implementation against the SESAR Deployment Programme which is a project view of the Common Projects organizing their implementation into optimum sequences of activities by all the stakeholders required to implement. To develop and maintain the SESAR Deployment Programme in close consultation with all the stakeholders is another important task under the SDM function.
