AirBridgeCargo earned Sky Fresh® support to improve service quality of temperature sensitive cargo transportation

AirBridgeCargo Airlines and Sky Fresh® have inked a Service Level Agreement on digital procedures for transportation of time and temperature sensitive shipments, most notable pharmaceutical, to keep pace with the latest industry technologies and guarantee 24/7 traceability for its customers worldwide.

The main point of cooperation will be related to cargo acceptance checklists, which were traditionally paper-based and filled in manually in the course of transportation process. Sky Fresh® provides an online web platform to centralize data from all acceptance checklists, with the possibility of monitoring freight movements for time and temperature sensitive shipment at each step of transportation and sending automated notification to all supply chain stakeholders. The users will be able to complete the checklists via a mobile application on their smartphone or tablet, available either on App Store or Google play. All corresponding data are in real-time visible in the Sky Fresh Web platform, consultable in any browser.


The agreement in this area comes with countless benefits for all the parties concerned, as it offers high level of customization, transparency of operations, traceability, efficiency and the possibility to take corrective and preventive actions, if needed.
