GVK MIAL meets e-freight compliance standards

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) rated the GVK-Mumbai International Airport (GVK MIAL) as e-freight compliant for adopting paperless initiatives at the air cargo operations in Mumbai. GVK MIAL has been supporting the e-freight initiative since the announcement by IATA and has been actively involved leading the way with the initiation of e-reception and online carting order issuance.
In 2014, GVK decided to go ahead with elimination of hard copy of the Airway Bill at export cargo acceptance, thus becoming the first airport operator in India to achieve this milestone. Subsequently, paperless air freight handling has been successfully introduced at various critical levels of cargo terminal operation both in BIAL and MIAL. Thereafter, GVK MIAL went a step further and began implementing other initiatives such as Advance Shipment Information in exports; Online Delivery Order message for Master Airway Bill and House Airway Bill in imports, and Automated Vehicle Token generation in exports to provide real time updates of cargo vehicles.
