Luxembourg, 25 September 2019 – CHAMP Cargosystems has joined the Animal Transportation Association (ATA). By taking up the ATA membership CHAMP Cargosystems wishes to exchange and develop a close collaboration with all the experts involved in animal transportation and work on next generation information systems together.
CHAMP’s innovation team has been developing new animal transportation solutions with the objective of improving the communication between the shipper, forwarding agent, and airline. Ultimately the information flow and data will allow tracking and monitoring real-time the safety and wellbeing of the animal transported and, in turn, increase airline safety.
“The Animal Transportation Association is convinced that the logistics industry must raise the bar and put high standards for animal transportation since the comfort and safety of the precious animals is our number 1 priority,” says Filip Vande Cappelle, President at the Animal Transportation Association. “There has not been much development in animal transportation in the last few years. The way we currently ship animals is still the same as 10 or 20 years ago.
ATA welcomes CHAMP Cargosystems to the association and its intention to improve the data insight between parties involved making animal transportation safer.”
“CHAMP is delighted to join the ATA as we strongly believe that close cooperation with business associations plays a critical role in delivering better value to the industry” says Arnaud Lambert, CEO at CHAMP Cargosystems. “We are eager to share our technological and domain expertise with the ATA and its members, toward safer and more efficient animal transport, to not only benefit the industry as a whole but more importantly to benefit the animals themselves!”
CHAMP hopes to use its technology to ensure safe and efficient transportation for animals while improving airline safety.
