Unisys Corporation today announced that Niranjan Navaratnarajah, cargo industry director for Unisys, will present at the Air Cargo India conference in Mumbai on February 26 to discuss why a fundamental cultural change is essential for the air cargo industry to remain nimble, economically viable and combat escalating physical and data security threats.
“In the increasingly competitive air cargo industry, the whole ecosystem – spanning airlines, warehouses, freight forwarders, booking agents, customs and road/rail transport – must accelerate its digital transformation, to be more efficient, and remain economically viable, as well as enable new business models and better secure the data and goods that are in its care.” says Navaratnarajah.
“Some players have made great strides in adopting new technologies, from online marketplaces, to IoT and drones. However, for most of the industry, a fundamental cultural change is required to evolve and create a truly connected supply chain, where stakeholders can work together to share inventory and securely share data with only those who need it“.
As part of his presentation, Navaratnarajah will cover three areas where cultural change is required in air cargo:
- Make inventory visible across multiple sales channels to create new business models
- Focus on both data and physical security
- Respond to market demand for specialized cargo
