At Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, it is possible to digitally check-in (export) freight shipments upfront of delivering at KLM Cargo. The digital check-in can be made in eLink, a Cargonaut IT system. Thanks to the digital check-in, booking, security and customs checks are made beforehand. This enables a faster process at ground handling.
Shipments which are not digitally check-in always require a stop at the documentation office for manual checks of the documents by Documentation staff.
The main benefit of the digital check-in of freight shipments is speed and a more efficient operational process. Shipments which are totally paperless (EAW) can proceed directly to the warehouse, while shipments with a pouch (EAP) can use the quick drop-off Priority desk at Documentation.
