Evaluations of FS100 completed in region for multiple air carriers and handlers

FreightScan, LLC, a leader in the development and deployment of innovative technology solutions for the freight and logistics industry, announced it has recently completed a series of evaluations of its FS100 automated cargo scanning system, including with a major US air carrier in Japan and large-scale handlers in Bangkok, Thailand and Shenzhen, China. Additional evaluations for air carriers in Singapore and Japan are scheduled throughout the remainder of September this year.

‘We have received a great deal of interest in our FS100 automated dimming system from the air cargo industry throughout Asia,’ said Andr’ Johnson, CEO of FreightScan. ‘These first evaluations represent the next step in establishing a FreightScan footprint in the Asian Pacific region. The data we have collected thus far indicates the potential to create significant value for cargo companies there. To prepare for anticipated installations, we have established relationships with local and regional strategic partners to offer the infrastructure required to properly serve this critical cargo market.’

FreightScan has signed agreements with Cargo Engineering Japan to dedicate a local business development team for working with customers in Japan. In addition, a regional manager based in Singapore will be working throughout the remainder of Asia, with field application services being provided to the Asian Pacific market by Certosa Express International, a logistics support company based in Hong Kong. Certosa will be working with FreightScan to service and install FS100 dimensioning systems, providing 24/7 swap replacement services throughout China and Asia through a network of 11 strategic stocking locations.

FreightScan already has several pilot programs and evaluations taking place throughout North America and is in the process of developing partnerships to handle its leading edge scanning systems for the automated dimming of cargo in Latin America, Europe and India.
