Dnata improves ground handling and air cargo operational efficiency
Dnata has launched a new resource management system in Dubai that will help the company optimise operations and efficiently manage its 20,000 employees and resources at Dubai International Airport (DXB) and Dubai World Central (DWC).
The implementation of dnata’s new resource management system is expected to significantly enhance operational efficiency, improve employee productivity and support better on-time performance.
The new platform will also allow dnata to apply further innovative technologies in its operations, including artificial intelligence-driven solutions and autonomous vehicles, in the next years.
The new system will be gradually implemented across dnata’s ground handling and cargo operations from June, 2019.
The technology will be provided by INFORM, the leading supplier of resource management systems to ground operations in the world.

Thomas Schmidt, Director, Airport Systems, INFORM, said: “For over 20 years, we have worked closely with dnata and supported the successful growth of its ground operations at Dubai International Airport. We are proud of this long-term relationship. With this project we will provide dnata with the latest technology and an expert, Dubai-based team.”
