Suvarnabhumi Airport, able to move six million tonnes of freight per year, which began full commercial operations September 28–is on its way to becoming Southeast Asia’s regional cargo hub.

Supachai Kaewsiri, director of the Information Technology Division of Thai Airport Ground Services (TAGS), said that his firm has invested Bt 700 million in establishing its Airport Cargo Community System (ACCS) connected with the cargo network of the newly opened airport in Bangkok.

During the past 27 days, Supachai said, TAGSs supervision of the IT network in Suvarnabhumi proved a smooth operation as planned. Right now both cargo and baggage transport are operated by Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and ACCS.

German consultants have recommend that both systems be used in parallel for the initial three months so as to allow entrepreneurs to familialise themselves with the new IT system of ACCS.

Mr. Suphachai added that Suvarnabhumi Airport’s cargo warehouse has served about 10,000 business operators.

When ACCS is in full use in January 2007, Suvarnabhumi is highly likely to become the primary cargo hub for all of Southeast Asia, because cargo services will be centred at one stop.
