CHAMP Cargosystems has launched a new platform to support innovation within the Belgian air cargo community together with long-time partner Air Cargo Belgium.
The new platform, which debuted at the innovation forum in Brussels on 31 March 2022, will give stakeholders access to share information, ideas, and best practices with the objective to foster innovation.
CHAMP said this initiative builds on an original MoU signed in September 2020 which cited the software and IT company as the preferred partner in any rollout or testing of new technologies and innovations created as part of a roadmap.
“This initiative is a positive step forward for the community and will give a voice to all stakeholders – big and small – in our air cargo community,” says Geert Keirens, Director at Air Cargo Belgium. “Air Cargo Belgium is excited to continue its relationship with CHAMP and bring its community together on one platform for our mutual benefit.”
Chris McDermott, CEO at CHAMP Cargosystems, said “innovation requires not just the idea and drive to deliver it, but also the feedback to ensure its success. Indeed, this is part of our core philosophy of being open, collaborative [and] innovative,” he added,
In 2018, CHAMP joined Air Cargo Belgium and shared its IT insights and related more closely with the members of the air cargo community.
The company said this joint effort will bring broader collaboration amongst members to firstly benefit the Belgian community and secondly the wider air cargo industry.
