Frankfurt Cargo Launches Dakosy’s Ramp Control System to Enable Slot Booking Times and Speed Up Landside Handling


Frankfurt Cargo Service (FCS) one of the largest independent cargo handlers at Frankfurt Airport has implemented Dakosy’s FAIR@Link digital Ramp Control System to reduce truck waiting times for cargo collections and deliveries.

The new service allows FCS to optimise the allocation of truck ramps by allowing freight forwarders delivering and collecting cargoes for FCS’ airline customers to digitally reserve ramps for loading, unloading, and to speed up the handling process. This allows FCS to use its facility infrastructure more efficiently, counteracts peak times, and increases the ability for all parties to plan and utilise their resources.

Ramp slots can be booked online by using the tool’s Transport Pre-Announcement (TPA). Forwarders can now transmit all the necessary data to the Ramp Control System, which can automatically check availability and assign a ramp for a specific time slots. This new tool can help avoid waiting times for drivers, vehicles, and, live information during the dispatch process can ensure maximum transparency.

Furthermore, the implementation also follows an extensive test phase which involved FCS connecting many of its customers to the system. FCS has now commenced the full deployment for imports and export, the deliveries will then begin to be phased into the FAIR@Link system from August onwards.

“The participation of FCS in the Ramp Control System is an important milestone. For shippers and forwarders, the application means a standardised booking of time slots in the airport’s Cargo City South. All players will ultimately benefit from the site-wide use of the system through shortened waiting times, greater transparency and optimisation of the cargo handling process,” added Mr. Ulrich Wrage, CEO of Dakosy.

Mr. Joachim von Winning, Managing Director of Air Cargo Community Frankfurt, also added, “We want to further enhance the performance of Frankfurt Airport and continuously improve its framework conditions. Digital networking is a central element in this. The automated allocation of ramps at FCS further accelerates cargo handling in Cargo City South.”

Lasty, Mr.Claus Wagner, Managing Director of Frankfurt Cargo Services continues to add “More than anything, we are looking forward to improving our service for our customers. At FCS, we are reaping the rewards of much more efficient processes, which are also significantly improving capacity. Both our customers and our employees will benefit”
