Boeing, Modern Logistics sign agreement for flight solutions
Boeing and Modern Logistics, a new integrated logistics services provider based in São Paulo, Brazil, have signed an agreement to provide Jeppesen flight solutions that will help the new company launch its air-cargo transport service this year. Modern Logistics has signed to use a full complement of services from Boeing subsidiary Jeppesen, a part of Boeing Digital Aviation. The services include electronic and paper charting, NavData, electronic flight bag, flight planning and OpsData. These tools will allow the company to efficiently schedule its flights, plan routes and calculate aircraft runway performance, providing flight crews more real-time digital access to key flight information and resources, such as dynamic charts and navigation utilities, which will reduce pilot workload, improve situational awareness, safety and operational efficiency.
