We use the term aviation logistics to refer to all of the logistics processes, resources, and facilities that are needed to transport and process passengers, freight, mail, and luggage in air transport. Airports are the on ground nodes of the international air transport network. They have the important function of acting as the junction between air and ground transportation networks.
Increasing demands for efficiency, quality, and cost effectiveness constitute an ever-increasing challenge for all of the parties involved, such as airport companies, airlines, handling agents, and forwarders. We can help you increase the number of passengers and volume of cargo that you transport quickly and safely by continuously monitoring and developing your logistics capacities, processes, and control strategies. In addition to the processes at and around the airport, we also look at all related upstream and downstream processes.
Comprehensive planning is required before any investment is made into adjusting air transport capacities. This has to be done for increasingly complex processes and growing requirements with less time given for planning. The basic political and administrative conditions are also always changing, such as the liberalization of the markets and the heightened requirements for air security.
