To eliminate sources of friction that hinder supply chains, Air21 Holdings urges digitizing the transportation process and making infrastructural expenditures.

Air21 Holdings, Inc. said that the government must reduce the sources of friction that are hindering supply chains. This can be done by digitizing the shipping process from end-to-end and calling for investment in the infrastructure that will make the transition possible such as data centers.

Air21 Holdings is a logistics company that provides total logistics and supply chain solutions for both domestic and international markets.

Air21 Holdings Chairman and President Alberto D. Lina said that to transform the industry, the government must accelerate digitization, change the rules, and build capacity in the workforce.

“The goal is unhampered movement of goods and to prepare such touch points along the supply chain,” Lina said during the 48th Philippine Business Conference and Expo, organized by the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
“We need to push for the entire supply chain — from end to end — to be fully digitized and to have real time intelligence on the state of our industry,” he added.

The data industry must be established to guarantee that the data gathered in digitizing the logistics process is legally collected, safely stored and processed, and properly disposed of, Business World reported.

Additionally, regulations should be harmonized for logistics companies that have to interact with several authorities such as ports and municipal governments.

Truck bans and traffic number coding should also be implemented in a manner that does not hinder the flow of goods.

“We welcome the recent initiative of the DTI (Department of Trade and Industry), TESDA (Technical Education and Skills Development Authority) and PTTC (Philippine Trade Training Center) in tapping the logistics industry in drafting the Philippine skill framework for logistics,” Lina concluded.
