AIR France KLM Cargo (AFKL Cargo) has become the first airline group to adopt the International Air Transport Association's (IATA) newly developed Dangerous Goods AutoCheck, a digital system that checks whether the shipment arrangements comply with the existing regulations.

'Air France KLM Cargo handles in excess of 1.5 million shipments per year. 173,000 of these shipments require dangerous goods handling. DG AutoCheck provides a digital solution to more effectively manage the transport of dangerous goods by air for our customers while at the same time enhancing safety and compliance.



'We will work closely with our ground handling partners to expand the use of DG AutoCheck beyond our hubs,' said executive vice president Marcel de Nooijer.



Talking about the digital solution, the airline group said: 'DG AutoCheck is a digital solution that facilitates the acceptance of dangerous goods by checking the compliance of the shipper's Declaration for Dangerous Goods (DGD) against all relevant rules and regulations contained in the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR), reported The STAT Times, Navi Mumbai.



'Optical character recognition technology transforms the paper DGD into electronic data. DG AutoCheck can also receive electronic shipper's Declaration for Dangerous Goods (e-DGD). This data is then processed and verified automatically using the digital version of the DGR.'



DG AutoCheck also facilitates a ground handler's or airline's decision to accept or reject a shipment during the physical inspection stage by providing a pictorial representation of the package with the marking and labelling required for air transport.
