Air France KLM Cargo said today it is the first airline to adopt the International Air Transport Association’s (IATA) new “AutoCheck” digital system for accepting shipments of dangerous goods transported by air.According to the cargo unit of the French-Dutch airline group, the system will ensure a shipper’s compliance with IATA’s dangerous goods regulations by digitally matching the shipper’s required dangerous goods declaration with the relevant IATA protocols. By using optical character recognition technology, AutoCheck can automatically receive, process and verify an electronic version of a shipper’s declaration by using the digitalized version of the IATA regulations, Air France KLM Cargo said.
