Leersum, Netherlands – The CargoHub Trucking CDM (Collaborative Decisions Making) initiative at Schiphol Airport has invited Riege Software Netherlands to take a seat in the CDM project consortium.

In January 2020, CargoHub launched the first version of the cloud based CDM platform to support the various stakeholders of the air cargo supply chain. The neutral logistics digital information platform is designed to reduce waiting hours, optimize truckloads, improve airport accessibility as well as transport planning and coordination. The results were received positively by the air cargo community and therefore the project will be continued for a period of three more years.

Henk Boorsma, partner and Managing Director of Riege in the Netherlands happily accepted the invitation to join the consortium which enables Riege to contribute strategically with sound know-how in forwarding procedures. Riege also provides a practical contribution by allowing its customers to help by sharing important data from their Scope freight forwarding software. By contributing these assets, Riege will be able to support the CDM platform to push digital transformation forward.

“We’re excited that the new initiative asked us to join on behalf of our freight forwarding customers and for our knowledge. Looking forward to being part of a problem-solving team implementing new procedures on and around the airport,” said Henk Boorsma.

Predictability instead of uncertainty

Goal of the CDM program is to avoid congestion at handling agents and the knock-on effect of delays for both the export and import freight processes. A planning mechanism like Trucking CDM based on transparent and predictable truck movements between road feeders and handing agents is designed to minimize lost time and to optimize handling processes in a digital environment.

Raoul Paul, founder of the CDM platform welcomes Riege's participation: “Riege Software is an expert in the forwarder logistics area and a significant number of forwarders at Schiphol are using their services. By sharing their knowledge and expertise within the Trucking CDM project we will gain essential insights to deliver the right connectivity and the most efficient process optimization for our stakeholders. We look forward to working together with team Riege.”

The importance of reliable data

Predictability and transparency of trucking movements is necessary for all the involved parties at the various airports in order to run the road transport of air cargo to its loading and unloading destinations as efficiently as possible. Predictability and transparency, however, depend on sound, reliable data.

Freight forwarders play an important role in the supply chain and have essential data, for example they have the Customs statuses of the shipments to be delivered or picked up from the handling agents. By providing this data from a substantial group of customers, Riege is able to usefully contribute to the platform and offer valuable support to the initiative.

Another step forward towards ONE Record

With Trucking CDM centered around the handling agents, Scope users can provide them with almost all of the data and event messages created in or exchanged via Scope with one single data entry which reinforces Riege's commitment to shift Scope continuously towards “One System. ONE Record.”

Buy making data from Scope available to all parties involved, participants along the supply chain can work as one, achieving maximum efficiency from door-to-door, and thus contributing not just to the platform but also to its further development.
