A balancing act

Many of you have heard about our exciting new ventures, the biggest ones of course being the COOL cargo terminal project and the change of our cargo management system (CMS). Both projects have go-live targets: November 2016 for the new CMS, and May 2017 for the COOL inauguration.

As part of these major undertakings, we have a number of sub-projects that are closely linked to those implementations.

You might wonder why we are engaged in several challenges at once. Well, we have a good reason. The implementation of SkyChain, our new CMS, and the move to our new state-of-the-art terminal will bring many changes to our processes and the ways we are working with cargo shipments. In addition to preparing for the upcoming transition, we are committed to the continuous development of our customer service, before and after the big move.

With multiple development initiatives and highly motivated people driving them, resource planning is critical in order to ensure that we are moving forward as planned, not only with the projects, but also in delivering smooth and reliable service to our customers every day. Luckily, enthusiasm is contagious and progress is exciting. This boosts our everyday work and spirits, inspiring ideas and critical thinking.

On top of our internal projects, we are attending many interesting industry events this spring. Air Cargo India just closed, and next up is the IATA World Cargo Symposium in Berlin on March 15–17, where our head of sales, Fredrik Wildtgrube, will be on a discussion panel about incorporating sustainable thinking in everyday work.

In April, we will be at the Nordic Air Cargo Symposium in Stockholm, Sweden, followed by the LogiPharma in Switzerland. Come mid-June, it will be time for Air Cargo China in Shanghai. If you are attending one of these events, you are warmly welcome to come and meet us!

Happy spring, everyone!
