Even in exceptional situations such as the Corona crisis, we bring running projects forward. HPC was commissioned to develop a standardised customs process for the import of consolidated air freight for Frankfurt / Main Airport and to organise workshops with the stakeholders involved. Based on the customs process, standardised interfaces for the necessary data exchange will be derived.
With this project, Frankfurt Airport is responding to a change in customs regulations that apply to the so-called 1:1 referencing for the provision of consolidated import freight from the second half of this year. Accordingly, there is no time to be lost here.
Due to the current situation, the FRA Air Cargo Community moved the workshop to the Internet. The workshop participants met in two video conferences last week, moderated by HPC. They were commissioned by Fraport in cooperation with two German logistics / air cargo associations, SLV and VACAD to compile the requirements for a common import platform. HPC will use this to design a process specification, which will be coordinated with the stakeholders.
In times of coronavirus, HPC shows flexibility and has thoroughly prepared the workshops with 15 participants online, so that the implementation via video conference and screen sharing went smoothly and successfully for everyone involved.
With more than two million tons of cargo in 2019, Frankfurt Airport (FRA) is one of the leading freight hubs in Europe and the world.
