Schiphol Airport Tests New Automatic Compliance System

Initial testing of an online compliance checking system that reduces delays by pinpointing mistakes on airway bills has successfully concluded. The system was developed as part of Schiphol's Smart Cargo Mainport Program, and speeds up cargo flows by detecting data errors in air waybills.

"The Compliance Checker reduces delays in the supply chain and makes it more predictable and efficient for everyone," said Jonas van Stekelenburg, head of cargo, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, during the Air Cargo Europe 2017 conference. He also told Air Cargo World that Schiphol was moving forward with its Venue program, which is a non-technological way to reduce bottlenecks at the airport by working with customs officials to verify certain shippers.

The system automatically inspects the content and format of a shipment’s data. Trials were carried out along the truck lane from Frankfurt to Amsterdam, on air cargo shipments from Schiphol, have been successful.

The system, developed by Cargonaut and tested by KLM Cargo, checks air waybill data and sends automatic alerts when information is incorrect. This prevents delays caused by sending non-compliant cargo to Customs.

The Compliance Checker “decreases delays, as well as the need to repeat work, and increases data quality, efficiency, and predictability in the supply chain,” Schiphol said.
