Digital Green Lane

Project Description

The Digital Green Lane is a uniform standardized pick-up and delivery process between freight forwarders and ground handling agents, supported by the BRUcloud Landside Management applications. This means that all freight is being picked up or dropped off at a registered time slot, all freight information is shared digitally throughout the process and all actions during the pick-up and drop off process are registered by the driver on a mobile device. The applications that make all this possible are the Slot Booking App, Freight Management App, Acceptance and Delivery App and Digital Desk App/kiosk.

Applications Involved

Freight Management App Linking freight to timeslot
Acceptance and Delivery App Registration of timestamps and non-conformities
Digital Desk App / Kiosk Self-service desk to register or book new slot
