Brussels Airport and Brucargo received the "IT Solution for the Air Cargo Industry Award 2018" at the World Air Cargo Awards in Shanghai for the Open Data platform BRUcloud.com. The platform enables different stakeholders to work more integrated within a network to realise air cargo operations. The initiative adheres to their three 'golden rules':
- BRUcloud guarantees that the source stays in control of the data. It defines with whom and in which context data is shared.
- Different logistical app providers can make use of the ecosystem created by the BRUcloud, to easily have access to a critical mass of customers for their app.
- The BRUcloud concept and/or its individual apps can be implemented in other communities. By enabling information exchange between communities, a full paper-less and highly efficient air cargo supply network becomes possible.
