IAG automates dangerous goods acceptance

[ January 26, 2022   //   ]

IAG Cargo, which includes the British Airways, Aer Lingus, Iberia and Vueling cargo brands, has adopted IATA’s new Dangerous Goods AutoCheck system to automate acceptance of shipments at its London-Heathrow hub. DG AutoCheck checks all regulations, rules and guidance in the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (DGR) and converts them into an automated validation solution. It uses optical character recognition technology to transform paper DG declarations into electronic data  and facilitates verification of marks and labels.
