Software firm Champ Cargosystems and booking platform CargoAi are teaming up to connect their systems through APIs.
By connecting systems, airlines and GSAs that use Champ Cargosystems software will be able to offer their capacity on CargoAi. Meanwhile, CargoAi’s freight forwarder users will gain access to the capacity of an increased number of airlines.
“Our clients and users are at the heart of this partnership. Creating value for them has always been our priority and that is why we have the widest range of suites of systems dedicated to air freight. Being available on CargoAi, if they wish, is therefore an additional service that we can offer our clients,” said Nicholas Xenocostas, vice president of commercial & customer engagement at Champ Cargosystems.
Connecting via APIs, Champ and CargoAi in effect enable supply chain partners to be integrated: airlines, freight forwarders and GSAs can thus connect and exchange information very easily, the partners said.
CargoAi chief executive Matthieu Petot added: “Our goal remains the same: to make digitisation accessible to all industry players. Thanks to the joint work we have accomplished, our customers can grow their businesses by being connected to each other, without having to do anything.”
The move is the latest in a series of developments at CargoAi. It has also launched a partnership with IBS Software.
Meanwhile, Leisure airlines TUI, Condor and SunClass Airlines have signed up to offer their capacity on the platform.
