More, CEO and Co-Founder of Kale Logistics Solutions up against the wall
at Messe Muenchen Air Cargo Europe last week with a paper copy of a study
his company produced titled “Kale Shaping Sustainability at Airports.”
“This is the first study by the organization which is committed to drive a sustainable future for the logistics industry,” Amar said.
“Kale conducted the industry-wide study to understand the impact of technology on airports and its allied community sustainability outcomes.
“The global study measured improvements at airport level on operational efficiency, visibility, truck congestion, carbon emissions and physical paper utility.”
What we like here, is that Kale included an extra step in its effort to get more readers, they printed it.
In baseball that kind of thinking is called “hit them where they ain’t” to score runs. In airport cargo, paper in some form or another is where many others still are today.
Don’t you want to do business with a company that thinks like this?
The report says technology can save $9 billion for the industry with approximately 16,000 gallons of carbon emissions being cut per airport.
“Cargo Community platforms have the potential to see 2,000-3,000 gallons of fuel being saved with lower truck wait times annually at an airport and a hector of forest saved every year with paperless operations,” Amar said.
“Sustainability matters more than ever, our technology-enabled strategy is helping power the logistics industry to march forward on the path of sustainability.”
It is a notable fact that Kale’s Cargo Community System, Cargo Management System, and other point solutions have delivered carbon-neutral operations across more than 100 airports and ports globally.

“No doubt, at the
biggest trade show for air cargo in 2023, takes on what the big crowd
talked about have varied.
“As we take stock of our time this
week at Messe Muenchen Air Cargo Europe in Munich I must express my personal
thanks to the many people who have stopped by our stand to share some
moments, and yes it has been too long since this great show has brought
us all together,” said ATC Aviation Services AG CEO Ingo Zimmer

Question was how goes it, at this 2023 turn at a show that played out for transportation people like a mammoth family style reunion, talking more about how good it feels to be back together after missing these gatherings every other year during the Covid. This was Jenni’s reaction.
“EMO Trans was excited about this year’s Transport Logistics Trade show because the last few years have been marked by our industry overcoming tremendous obstacles to support humanity in continued growth and prosperity and in helping people all over the world get back to health.
“The challenges permeated from the c suite to the desk level and we are proud of how every level of our organization contributed to our great results.
“The outcome is that we not only had record profits, which have largely been reinvested in the organization as capital to make infrastructure improvements and hire staff, but also that the team itself has become battle tested, more resilient and more capable.
“The market is shifting, and we will as always be guided by our 50 years’ experience as we drive solutions through continuity.
“The new innovations stand on the shoulders of our experience.
“About the Munich Air Cargo Europe show last week: “After four years of being away, we invested in a larger booth and more team members attended because we are proud to show our investment of the last four years.
“From customers and colleagues to vendors and even competitors we love these people and boy have we missed everyone!
“Nothing felt better than seeing each other again,” Jenni declared.
Brandon agreed: "The Airforwarders Association's international engagement continues this week as we met many members and made new friends at this popular event that has not happened since the pandemic began.
“Air Cargo Europe is the international gathering for the global air freight industry.
“Since 2003, it has been held every two years in Munich.
“It's been a busy few weeks for the AfA, starting with cohosting a recent event in Miami with 35 members and Transportation Security Administration (TSA) air cargo leadership to discuss upcoming security enhancements. From there, it was off to address forwarders of the World Air Cargo Association in Sorrento, Italy, followed by our participation in the International Air Transport Association (IATA) World Cargo Symposium in Istanbul, Turkey.
“Next is the upcoming Cargo Network Services Corp. (CNS) Partnership Conference June 3-5th in Miami. Hope to see you in Miami,” Brandon said.
“Great show!” said Mike Oslansky, one of the outstanding air cargo professionals in attendance at Messe Muenchen Air Cargo Europe Munich last week who were having some high times enjoying the opportunity to see old friends and make new ones in MUC.
Although the displays were impressive, equally on the mark were walkabouts, developing business during the four-days, pressing the flesh greeting old contacts and making new ones.
Mike Oslansky is a last mile operations guy; a unique, highly skilled professional in air cargo today, not a bad place to unleash his unique expertise, which includes 33 years at United Airlines Cargo before retiring in 2020 as Director Cargo Operations, then going into business for himself forming his own MAWB Services LLC. based in Chicago.
“Last week I was helping to promote Airblox and cellumation GmbH, two unique companies.
“Airblox stacks up today as a key new entrant in our industry because it allows freight forwarders (buyers) and airlines (sellers) to trade cargo capacity in the form of standardized electronic block space agreements (eBSA).
“cellumation technology is unique compared to other sortation solutions.
“The cellumation solution uses less space in a warehouse and there is virtually no chance of system downtime.
“This is critical for our industry that is now transitioning to the world of e-commerce and the timeliness of its last mile deliveries,” Mike said.
“The future is here and it’s great to be a part of it,” Mike smiled.
