At the end of last month, an Air Europa flight between Madrid-Barajas and Montevideo airports in Uruguay was the first in history to make the digital management of air cargo between Europe and Latin America a reality.
Thanks to blockchain technology, the shipment was successfully processed without the need to print a single piece of paper, saving time and avoiding mistakes throughout the process.
In addition to Air Europa, the pilot experience included the participation of the companies and organizations DB Schenker, Usyncro, World Flight Services, Latin America Cargo City, IATA, and the Spanish Tax Agency.
All of them are part of MAD Cargolab, an initiative that seeks to transform the air cargo sector.
Blockchain technology, at the base of this entire environment, allows information to be centralized and synchronized with absolute transparency and security, guaranteeing the traceability of the shipment at all times.
The success of the operation allows laying the foundations to establish a stable air cargo corridor between Spain and Latin America that allows, through the digitization of processes, to eliminate any inefficiency.
With its participation in this initiative, Air Europa is once again at the forefront of technology applied to the airline industry.
In fact, in April it became the first airline in the world to sell tickets in the NFT format, which also uses the reliability and security of blockchain systems.
