Kale Logistics Solutions announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with NorthLink Aviation to build the next generation of digital cargo infrastructure at NorthLink’s express freight and e-commerce terminal at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport (ANC), Canada.
NorthLink and Kale have jointly developed a multi-layered digital roadmap comprising a stakeholder collaboration platform for process automation for e-commerce and cargo handling, a stakeholder collaboration platform, and other cross-border management tools. This infrastructure will help NorthLink create digital differentiation and support its vision of a revolutionary and vibrant logistics hub in Anchorage.
In 2022, ANC ranked third in cargo airport activity among worldwide cargo airports. NorthLink intends to leverage this opportunity to unlock Anchorage’s unrealized potential as a global logistics hub with an emphasis on cross-border e-commerce (CBEC). To accomplish this goal, NorthLink Aviation is building essential airport infrastructure at ANC to serve air cargo carriers.
NorthLink has entered into a 55-year concession for a 120-acre property on the airport’s South Park campus and is developing infrastructure for aircraft parking, fueling, de-icing, and related warehouse and office space. NorthLink’s objective is to grow Anchorage as a hub for logistics by maximising ANC’s strategic location and combining infrastructure, technology, and service to increase profits for NorthLink’s customers. To accomplish this objective, NorthLink plans to take a leading role in sustainability and digitalization, as both are vital components of its strategy.
