Qatar Airways Cargo has continued its digital push with the implementation of data connections with air cargo software provider WiseTech Global.

The airline said that connecting directly with WiseTech will help to eliminate multiple intermediary data exchange points between freight forwarders and airline operating systems.

“These direct data feeds also add real value by removing extensive data duplication that has proliferated over many years, removing the burden on forwarders and reducing the resulting complexities and costs,” Qatar Cargo said.

Also, through the CargoWise connection, air waybill data from the forwarder will be immediately available to the global Qatar Airways ground handling network, the company added.

Guillaume Halleux, chief officer cargo at Qatar Airways Cargo, said: “[Our agreement with WiseTech] will also support future air cargo industry growth by removing technical risk and reducing costs. This initial step delivers a strong foundation for on-going product and technical connectivity between Qatar Airways Cargo and its substantial pool of customers.”

The airline has launched a range of digital initiatives over the past few years. Most recently it added its capacity on the WebCargo booking platform in the US.
