THE Board of Airline Representatives in Germany (BARIG) has called on the country's air cargo sector to invest in technology to help combat the threat of lower cost rivals and bottlenecks, reports London's Air Cargo News.

Barig secretary general Michael Hoppe said there had been some initial successes in the process of digitising supply chains, such as Frankfurt's FAIR@Link airport apron guidance system and the digital declaration of hazardous goods, but more is needed.



'To adequately manage capacity bottlenecks, the lack of qualified personnel and competitive disadvantages due to lower operating costs in other countries, more courage for digitalisation and innovation is still required,' he wrote.



'This inevitably includes an increased harmonisation, deregulation and reducing bureaucracy of processes.



'BARIG drives these topics forward in the BARIG Air Cargo & Logistics Committee as well as with the Air Cargo Community Frankfurt and representatives of all areas of the air cargo process chain.'



BARIG's Air Cargo and Logistics Committee recently met with the Association of Air Cargo Handlers in Germany, the German Association for Freight Forwarding and Logistics and Fraport, to discuss the optimisation of logistics and air cargo in the country.
