Transitioning from Paper-Based to Automated Systems in Air Cargo

Air cargo has played a critical role throughout the COVID-19 pandemic—facilitating freight movement of medical equipment, for example, through aircraft conversions and expanded chartered flights. As airlines design their long-term recovery plans, regulatory processes, and checkpoint reviews could have a severe impact on the costs and service quality of time-sensitive shipments. Automation and other digital tools can deliver the transparency they need to adhere to these requirements.
