Etihad Airport Services And Cargo Community Network To Develop Abu Dhabi Cargo Community Portal

<span "="">
 
 

Etihad Airport Services - Cargo (EAS-Cargo), a subsidiary of Etihad Airways, is working with the Singapore-based Cargo Community Network (CCN) to rollout a new information technology platform for the Abu Dhabi cargo community called Cargo Community Service (CCS).

 
The innovative one-stop service is designed to facilitate the air cargo booking and shipment processes for Abu Dhabi-based freight forwarders and clearing agents, by linking them directly with air cargo carriers, ground handlers and third parties. 
 
Furthermore, under CCS, a number of comprehensive electronic cargo services for the Abu Dhabi air cargo community will be introduced utilising a secure online portal called CCNhub. This includes Electronic Customs Manifest and Electronic Delivery Orders (eDO) functions, which offer freight forwarders a timely and cost-effective way of submitting customs data electronically for cargo clearance, in addition to obtaining pricing information for printing delivery orders.
 
EAS-Cargo and CCN expect the new information technology platform services to go live in Q4 2013.
 
Teow Boon Ling, Chief Executive Officer of CCN, said: “We are delighted to collaborate with EAS-Cargo as it sets about building an air cargo e-commerce environment and hub in Abu Dhabi.
 
“Having been in this region for the past few years, we have a good understanding of the local market requirements and practices, and with this exciting partnership we envisage the customised e-services we deliver to the Abu Dhabi cargo community will elevate the standard of air cargo services to the next level.”
