At the Air Cargo Europe (Transport Logistic) 2023 event in Munich, Germany, Kale Logistics Solutions, a global pioneer in IT solutions for the logistics industry, launched their study report on airport sustainability titled Kale Shaping Sustainability at Airports. This is the organisation’s inaugural study, and it is dedicated to driving a sustainable future for the logistics industry.
Kale undertook an industry-wide study to better understand the impact of technology on airports and the implications of community sustainability. The global study measured improvements at the airport level on operational efficiency, visibility, truck congestion, carbon emissions, and physical paper utility.
According to the analysis, technology can save the sector $9 billion by reducing carbon emissions by 16,000 gallons per airport. Cargo Community platforms have the ability to save 2000–3000 gallons of gasoline each year through reduced truck wait times at airports, as well as a hectare of forest per year through paperless operations.
“Sustainability matters more than ever,” said Amar More, CEO and co-founder of Kale Logistics Solutions. “Our technology-enabled strategy is helping power the logistics industry to march forward on the path of sustainability.”
“The study’s encouraging findings give us hope that the industry is on the right track.” Some of the information in this research will astound industry patrons and stakeholders. There is no greater forum to present these insights than Messe München’s Air Cargo Europe. Team Kale is happy to share the useful insights gained from this study.”
It is worth noting that Kale’s Cargo Community System, Cargo Management System, and other point solutions have produced carbon-neutral operations in over 100 airports and ports across the world.
