Volaris picks SmartKargo’s cloud-based management system

Mexico City-based Volaris, Mexico’s second largest airline, has chosen SmartKargo’s Cloud-based air cargo management system.
Volaris, with a cargo network from 22 US markets to destinations throughout Mexico and Central America, saw SmartKargo’s system go live in a “record” 27 days.
The SmartKargo platform features a one-screen booking interface, flexible pricing and rate-making and 24/7 call support through three global call centres.
Holger Blankenstein, chief commercial officer at Volaris, said: “Our new air cargo system will possess state-of-the-art functionality for mobility with instant visibility of shipment information for our customers.
“At the same time, the system will provide Volaris with instant business intelligence to help us grow our business and serve customers better. The system is flexible and easily scalable, providing easy integration with future technologies.”
Milind Tavshikar, SmartKargo chief executive said: “SmartKargo’s cloud-based solution is ideal for an airline such as Volaris who needed a quick implementation to capture the system’s many benefits, without a large investment in infrastructure.
“Since our Cargo ERP system is based upon the Microsoft Azure global cloud infrastructure, every partner in the Volaris Airlines cargo chain will have instant access to shipment information, mobility via any smartphone, tablet or other device and instant business intelligence for decision support.”
