Paper-free airfreight gets the thumbs-up

Global forwarding company DB Schenker says the Sydney e-freight project was a great initiative and a first step in the right direction.
The company said it is fully supportive of the e-freight project and is highly active in implementing it throughout its global network. “We have recognised that e-freight is the best way to handle our shipments in the future, in order to become more efficient and productive within our airfreight supply chain,” a company spokesperson said.
The implementation for Schenker in Australia has been a smooth process. DB Schenker was involved in receiving and transmitting electronic data, such as commercial documents, from its customers and to/from other DB Schenker offices.
“Export and import e-freight shipments for DB Schenker have been moving smoothly. Our operational staff is very keen, confident and committed to introduce more lanes.
“We believe the challenge lies in continuous communication between all stakeholders, i.e. shippers, freight forwarders, airlines, terminal operators, consignee and other government bodies and how together we can not only educate each other but find ways of making operations easier.”
