Ostend-Bruges International Airport goes live with Nallian’s Inspection Management app to streamline the import process of perishables

Ostend-Bruges International Airport has activated the Inspection Management App on its community system, the OST Cargo Cloud powered by Nallian. The application facilitates the coordination and execution of actions involved in the process for all stakeholders. The digital approach shortens turnaround times, provides visibility and transparency for the food safety authority (FAVV/AFSCA) and freight forwarders, and ultimately protects shelf life.

A uniform, digital approach connecting all stakeholders

The Inspection Management app gives freight forwarders, inspection point operators and local food safety authorities a uniform, digital way to coordinate and execute inspection of perishables. With the mobile and desktop app they efficiently plan and execute all actions, digitally share the documentation and certificates, and have real-time status visibility. The application is integrated with TRACES, the European Commission’s digital certification and management platform for all sanitary and phytosanitary requirements, which reduces and facilitates data input.

Eric Dumas, CEO Ostend-Bruges International Airport, says: “The Inspection Management app helps us to further increase the quality and speed of our cargo handling, which are important differentiators for our airport. We are proud to offer the logistics parties at our hub an efficient way of working that benefits all actors and, ultimately, the end consumer.”

Jean Verheyen, CEO Nallian, adds: Ostend-Bruges International Airport illustrates that also smaller airports benefit from a digital way of working. We are proud to empower them, and by extension the other airports and ports in Belgium using the app, with an efficient and uniform inspection process.
