GVK Mumbai International Airport Limited (MIAL) along with technology provider Kale Logistics Solutions has introduced Cargo Mobile App as an extension to its air cargo community platform, GMAX to foster better communication and effective dissemination of information among members of the trade. It is India’s first such app, the airport operator said.

The app provides important functionalities for the trade, enables end-to-end tracking of shipments, and helps all members of the logistics chain in planning their resources, MIAL said.

The GMAX mobile app can be downloaded from Google Play store on all Android mobile devices.

The app enables Export General Manifest (EGM) tracking, which can expedite the export incentive realisation process, and provides complete visibility of vehicles/shipment within cargo terminal. “The app provides different levels of authorised access for the Cargo Terminal Operators, Customs, Customs Brokers, Airlines, Freight Forwarders, Shippers/Consignees and other Statutory Bodies, thereby offering greater visibility into Cargo Operations,” MIAL said.

“Transparency and efficiency are essential in cargo logistics, especially for operations the size we have at MIAL. We achieved both to a large extent with the GMAX portal and have now taken it a step further with the mobile app. This will have tangible cost and resource benefits at every stage of cargo operations,” according to Manoj Singh, Vice President and Head of Cargo, MIAL.

Rajesh Panicker, COO, Kale Logistics said, “This is a significant milestone for us towards our larger goal of unifying the entire global logistics supply chain on a common unified technology platform. It is a demonstration of the capability of our airport solutions to power e-Freight at our customers’ airports.”
