Cargo Digital Factory
Based in Paris, France, and launched in 2018 by ECS Group, Cargo Digital Factory consists of 10 air cargo industry and technology experts, an equal balance of men and women, and follows three clear principles: harmonize and standardize, digitalize and automate processes, and offer new services to customers.
By 2018, ECS Group’s rapid expansion across more than 50 countries had brought with it many different ways of working, encompassing heterogeneous processes and old systems.
